CABSAT 2018 – Exhibitor Preview
December 20, 2017
Broadpeak® — Stand ZB6-D33
As mobile video consumption continues to grow in the region, pay-TV operators and content providers are challenged to differentiate themselves in terms of providing the best user experience delivered over managed networks and OTT. At CABSAT 2018, Broadpeak will demonstrate its CDN, video streaming, and multicast ABR solutions, which enable content providers and telecom, cable, and satellite operators to deliver any video service at the best quality in a scalable and secured manner.
KEY TECHNOLOGY DEMOS
Optimize QoE and CDN Cost Savings With Local Video Caching Technology
At CABSAT, Broadpeak will highlight BroadCache Box, a local video caching solution for broadcasters and content aggregators that dramatically reduces CDN costs while boosting subscribers’ QoE.
BroadCache Box is unique in that it deploys local caches into telecom or cable operators’ networks, where the most popular content from a specific content provider is stored. Since the content is streamed from a location closer to end-users, latency and network congestion are reduced, resulting in higher video bitrates, faster start times, and uninterrupted viewing sessions. As the most popular content can represent more than 80 percent of the video traffic, caching at the ISP level significantly lowers CDN service costs. Additionally, BroadCache Boxes do not generate any transit costs. The solution can be used for both live and on-demand content and supports secured HTTPS connections.
Deliver Petabytes of TV Recordings and Playback on Every Screen With Cloud PVR
Broadpeak Cloud PVR solution makes it possible for subscribers 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 supports all scenarios for Cloud DVR, including start-over, time-shift, and catch-up TV, as well as impulsive recording, using a shared copy or private copy model. The recorded content can be processed on the fly to be viewed on any device type.
Improve Content Quality Using umbrellaCDNTM With CDN Diversity
Broadpeak’s umbrellaCDNTM CDN selector allows content providers to choose the best content delivery networks for delivering video content. At CABSAT, Broadpeak will highlight CDN Diversity, a ground-breaking function of umbrellaCDN which allows content providers to dynamically take into account the instantaneous quality of several CDNs as a service, combine their contributions, and deliver the content at a quality level exceeding what would be achievable with the best CDN alone.
