SET Expo 2018 – Exhibitor Preview
July 24, 2018
Broadpeak® — Stand 107
OTT video revenues for 19 Latin American countries will reach $4.60 billion in 2022, up from the $1.87 billion recorded in 2016, according to Digital TV Research. To take advantage of these opportunities, content providers in the region need scalable, cost-effective content delivery solutions that guarantee a flawless quality of experience across all screens, over managed and unmanaged networks.
At the 2018 SET Expo, Broadpeak will demonstrate its local video caching, CDN selector, analytics, multicast ABR, and Cloud PVR solutions, which resolve real-world challenges for content providers by providing superior QoE and efficient content delivery.
Reduce CDN Costs, Boost QoE With Local Video Caching Technology
Broadpeak will demonstrate BroadCache Box, a local video caching solution for broadcasters and content aggregators, at SET Expo. Using BroadCache Box, content providers can dramatically reduce CDN costs while boosting subscribers’ quality of experience (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 bit rates, 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, CDN selection, and ad insertion, as well as video delivery analytics.
Enhance Content Quality With umbrellaCDNTM With CDN Diversity
Broadpeak’s umbrellaCDNTM CDN selector allows content providers to choose the best content delivery networks for streaming their content. At SET Expo 2018, Broadpeak will highlight CDN Diversity, a groundbreaking feature of umbrellaCDN that 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.
nanoCDNTM multicast ABR Solution Minimizes Bandwidth and Improves QoE
As the first provider of multicast ABR technology, Broadpeak is revolutionizing live multiscreen video delivery. At SET Expo, the company will demonstrate its nanoCDNTM multicast ABR solution, which makes live 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 zero latency for live video streaming and live OTT delivery via satellite.
Deliver Petabytes of TV Recordings and Playback On Every Screen With Cloud PVR
Broadpeak’s Cloud PVR solution is used by some of the largest pay-TV operators globally to deliver time-shifted TV services. Simple, scalable, and flexible, Broadpeak’s solution 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 Cloud PVR, service providers can deliver start-over and catch-up TV, as well as impulsive recording, using a shared or private copy model. The recorded content can be processed on the fly to be viewed on any device type.
