iStreamPlanet: View from the Top 2013

Increasingly viewers are looking for their favorite TV, sports and news channels on all of their devices. Multiscreen, live streaming video drives much longer viewing times than on demand content, up to ten times longer, providing content owners and distributors a wealth of opportunity for monetization.

This presents an exciting opportunity for broadcasters, pay TV operators, and content distributors. But streaming live video to all of those devices can be complex and very expensive. Traditional solutions require racks of dedicated hardware equipment to handle different parts of the workflow, providing little in the way of flexibility or scalability, or insight into the workflow.

This is why iStreamPlanet created Aventus. Aventus is a cloud-based, live video workflow solution. It effectively and cost efficiently delivers live video channels to multiple screens, including PCs, Macs, tablets, phones and connected TVs. Aventus solves three of the biggest challenges for content owners and distributors:

• Scale your live video delivery - Aventus simplifies the live video workflow enabling content owners to launch live channels in minutes versus months. Aventus takes a simplified approach to live linear streaming with ingest, media processing, security and publishing seamlessly integrated into one solution.

• More flexible than hardware - Deploy on premises in a private cloud or use the Aventus Service (SaaS). Commodity hardware and virtualized environments create efficiencies and drive down costs and by taking advantage of the cloud service approach, failover and redundancy come built in.

• Reach more devices at less cost - The best viewing experience through unlimited, optimized profiles that match video output to target device. Reach your viewers no matter what device they’re on: PCs, phones, tablets, game consoles, connected TVs with the highest quality, cloud-based video output: 1080p true HD.
