NAB Show 2018 – Exhibitor preview
March 12, 2018
Broadpeak® — Stand SU10801
Global online TV episode and movie revenues will reach $83 billion in 2022, according to Digital TV Research. The United States, in particular, is projected to be the dominant territory for OTT revenues, accounting for $33 billion. To take advantage of these opportunities, content providers and pay-TV operators need scalable, cost-effective content delivery solutions. Moreover, these solutions must ensure a flawless quality of experience across all screens, whether the video service is delivered over managed or unmanaged networks.
At the 2018 NAB Show, Broadpeak will demonstrate its cloud PVR, multicast ABR, and local video caching solutions, which set the standard for superior QoE and efficient content delivery.
nanoCDNTM multicast ABR Solution Boosts QoE, Minimizes Bandwidth
As the first provider of ABR multicast technology, Broadpeak is revolutionizing live multiscreen video delivery. At the 2018 NAB Show, the company will demonstrate its nanoCDNTM multicast ABR solution, which makes HTTP video delivery to any device truly scalable by turning millions of broadband gateways, cable modems, Wi-Fi routers, and 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. nanoCDN has been successfully deployed by leading operators worldwide for live television delivery to any screen.
Several new use cases for nanoCDN will be shown, including low latency for live video streaming and live HTTP TV service delivery via satellite. Broadpeak will also demonstrate innovative new features for nanoCDN, such as quick start, which prevents the buffering at the beginning of a live content stream to ensure the highest QoE for end users.
Cloud DVR – Deliver Petabytes of TV Recordings and Playback On Every Screen
Broadpeak’s Cloud PVR is used by some of the largest pay-TV operators globally. Providing operators with a simple, scalable, and flexible solution for delivering time-shifted TV services, Cloud PVR allows subscribers to launch multiple recordings on various channels simultaneously without any constraint on the available bandwidth or the number of tuners on the reception device. With Broadpeak’s solution, service providers can deliver start-over 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.
Local Video Caching Technology – The Best Way to Reduce CDN Costs and Guarantee QoE
At the 2018 NAB Show, Broadpeak will demonstrate BroadCache Box, a local video caching solution for broadcasters and content aggregators. Using BroadCache Box, content providers can dramatically reduce CDN costs while boosting subscribers’ QoE
With BroadCache Box, local caches are deployed into telecom or cable operators’ networks, and 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.
Broadpeak will also showcase its solutions for virtual CDN, content replacement and ad-insertion, as well as video delivery analytics.
