Edgeware Enables Broadcasters to Gain Control of OTT Delivery Networks at IBC 2015
Edgeware, the leader in video delivery networks, today announces a Edgeware’s Video Consolidation Platform (VCP) enables broadcasters to tap into new revenue sources and protect content rights by extending their reach within IP delivery networks
Amsterdam(11 Sep 2015)
Edgeware, the leader in video delivery networks, is demonstrating how its highly innovative Video Consolidation Platform (VCP) can provide broadcasters with greater control of their next-generation OTT delivery channels, including enabling full visibility of network and content performance.
Today’s broadcasters operate in an increasingly fragmented and competitive arena with enhanced requirements to deliver innovative content experiences to consumers on both traditional STBs and newer connected devices. Relying on partners for business-critical functions, such as encryption, network storage, format re-packaging, content distribution and playout gives little control over the quality for which they will be judged by their viewers.
As a consequence, the broadcaster has very limited visibility of service performance and lacks the aggregated data needed to make prompt decisions to optimize networks, content and drive new business opportunities.
By deploying Edgeware’s VCP, broadcasters can take back control of vital head-end and distribution functions. Collapsing multiple video processing activities, such as repackaging, encryption, recording, storage and playout, into a single, consolidated and high performance platform, Edgeware’s VCP enables broadcasters to cost effectively originate and serve their own OTT services.
As the levels of content and viewers grow, the same platform is easily scaled in the head-end and via distribution of CDN nodes into the broadband service provider networks. The system provides the highest capacity available in the industry and includes state-of-the-art monitoring and analytics tools needed to maintain the highest levels of service quality.
“Broadcasters are reassessing their value proposition in today’s competitive market and are increasingly looking to provide immersive, next generation OTT services” says Joachim Roos, CEO at Edgeware. “Our VCP gives them an infinitely scalable, cost-effective platform to extend their control to the OTT delivery networks, while enabling vital visibility of critical service quality.”
To learn more about how broadcasters can take back control with VCP Origin, meet Edgeware at IBC, taking place September 11-15, at stand 14.B20 in Amsterdam.
