The video streaming market is growing rapidly and 5G networks promise to shape the future of content delivery on mobile devices. As content providers and payTV operators look to capitalize on new business and monetization opportunities, they need scalable, cost-effective content delivery solutions that ensure a flawless quality of experience across all screens, whether delivered over managed or unmanaged networks.
At IBC2019, at stand 5.B78, Broadpeak's nanoCDN™ multi-cast ABR technology for satellite will be on display — this is at the heart of the firm's ready-to-deploy, cost-effective solution for OTT delivery, allowing operators to address scalable, multi-screen streaming with transmission over satellite. Broadpeak® will showcase innovative use cases and new business opportunities for mABR for satellite, including direct-to-home OTT, 5G backhaul, mobility, and VSAT.
The company will also demo how their IPTV DASH product enables a better-quality television experience on all screens compared with IPTV. Using Broadpeak's CDN and its nanoCDN™ multicast ABR solutions, payTV operators can deliver content on managed set-top boxes (STBs) and open devices via IPTV DASH.
Broadpeak's solutions have been successfully deployed on more than 100 devices, including Android TV and Apple TV. Through the implementation of mABR in MPEG-DASH (or HLS) format, operators can benefit from the greater flexibility offered by OTT combined with the scalability and low latency offered by IPTV.
A variety of premium IPTV DASH applications will be showcased at IBC2019, including:
Ultra-low latency: Broadpeak's nanoCDN Multicast ABR solution enables ultra-low latency on every screen in all ABR formats, including HLS. New features for nanoCDN will be demonstrated, such as CMAF format and chunked transfer encoding, which further decrease latency for OTT live streaming. The feature can also be used to synchronize all the devices in the same home network.
Multicast ABR for Android TV: Broadpeak enables the easy integration of mABR with Android TV. At IBC2019, Broadpeak will, for the first time, showcase its mABR TV Input, which plugs into the Android TV Input Framework (TIF) on Technicolor STBs.
End-to-end Android TV ecosystems: At IBC2019, Broadpeak will present a range of the pre-integrated, end-to-end, technical Android TV ecosystems that include the company's video delivery technologies.
4K UHD HDR video streaming: Broadpeak's nanoCDN solution supports premium video delivery with the highest quality. We are proud to be collaborating with Dolby® to showcase its industry leading Dolby Vision® technology at the Broadpeak booth at IBC2019.
Personalized ad insertion: By leveraging manifest manipulation, Broadpeak can insert or replace video content to help operators and content providers monetize their live and on-demand services with the highest value.
All the components used to build these solutions can be deployed on COTS hardware or virtual machines, or as containers in a dockerized system, bringing an unmatched level of elasticity.
