At BroadcastAsia 2017, Broadpeak® will address these trends through demonstrations of its latest innovations in CDN, video streaming, and video analytics solutions. Using Broadpeak solutions, content providers and pay-TV operators dramatically improve the user experience delivered over managed networks and OTT.
INNOVATIONS FOR CONTENT PROVIDERS
umbrellaCDNTM with CDN Diversity Sets New Standards for Content Quality
Broadpeak’s umbrellaCDNTM CDN selector allows content providers to always choose the best content delivery network for delivering video content. Through an advanced new capability of umbrellaCDN, called CDN Diversity, content providers can dynamically take into account the instantaneous quality of several CDNs as a service to combine their contributions and deliver the content with a quality exceeding what would be achievable with the best CDN.
Video Delivery Analytics Ensure Consistent QoE Across All Screens
Broadpeak’s new standalone video analytics solution is transforming multiscreen video delivery. Using this solution, content providers can gain insight into the QoE actually perceived by end-users, leveraging critical information such as start-up time, stall durations, rebufferings, and user engagement.
CONFERENCE: Broadpeak will participate in a guided technology tour on video delivery analytics, whereby each of several exhibitors will provide an exclusive 10-minute demonstration of their latest innovations and products free-of-charge. Attendees can RSVP for the technology tour, free of charge, online here.
INNOVATIONS FOR OPERATORS
Zero Latency for Live Video Streaming and Affordable HTTP Delivery Via Satellite
Broadpeak will demonstrate several new capabilities for its nanoCDNTM multicast ABR technology at BroadcastAsia 2017. nanoCDN multicast ABR makes live HTTP video delivery to any device truly scalable by turning millions of broadband gateways, cable modems, Wi-Fi routers, or STBs into active components of an operator’s content delivery infrastructure. Leveraging home networks, operators can cost-effectively manage the consumption peaks of live multiscreen services for millions of simultaneous viewers using only a few megabits per second from their network.
Zero latency for live video streaming will be shown at BroadcastAsia. Compared with other solutions on the market, nanoCDN multicast ABR dramatically reduces latency for live video streaming on every screen. The solution brings latency in the live multiscreen ABR streaming environment equivalent to what is experienced with IPTV.
With nanoCDN multicast ABR, operators can also deliver live HTTP TV services via satellite. nanoCDN allows satellite operators to cost-effectively deliver live and on-demand services across tablets, smartphones, connected TVs, and other OTT devices by leveraging the end-users’ STB.
CONFERENCE: Julien Croguennec, VP Sales APAC at Broadpeak, will present on “Reducing the Latency for Live Video Multiscreen Streaming” on Thursday, May 25 at 12:10 p.m. in the Innovation Hub. Additional details can be found online here.
Cloud PVR Enables Flawless Delivery of Live TV Recordings and Playback for Multiscreen
Broadpeak’s cloud PVR solution enables end-users to launch multiple recordings on various channels simultaneously, without any constraint for the end-user on the available bandwidth or number of tuners on their reception device.
Broadpeak offers all scenarios for shared copy and private copy cloud PVR. Using cloud PVR, operators can deliver a broad range of services, including start-over, time-shift, and catch-up TV, as well as impulsive recording, while only storing content once in cases where shared copy is alloawed. The recorded content can be processed on the fly to be viewed on any device type.
