Our Broadcast Solution

The simplest way to deliver your content online.

Helping you become the broadcaster of tomorrow

According to Cisco, video streaming accounts for over two-thirds of all internet traffic, and this share is expected to jump to 82% by 2020. Additionally, by 2020, there will be 26.3 billion networked devices and connections globally, up from 16.3 billion in 2015.

For yesterday’s broadcasters, the pressure is on to compete in today’s endless battle for eyeballs. Appealing to millennials watching habits is no small task, after all. Some broadcasters successfully extended their traditional broadcast infrastructure for the digital ecosystem, while others were not as fortunate.

Viewers have already formed loyalties to those who managed to become the broadcaster of tomorrow. On the other hand, if you’re one of those who experimented with OTT without the results you’d hoped for, or have been overwhelmed with the efforts and costs of launching an app, you’re not alone.

Our Broadcast/OTT Solution solves multiple challenges faced by broadcasters every day.

It’s the only solution available to prepare, deliver, display and monetize flawless video that scales as your online audience grows – all with the power of one.

Legacy infrastructure

Geographically dispersed origination facilities, advanced production workflows, disparate formats and device proliferation lead to complicated integration.

Complexity

Delivering TV-like quality to every device and across any network requires a smarter approach to avoid needless complexity and associated processing, storage and management overhead.

Metadata

A large library of programming, disparate metadata formats, multiple devices and distribution networks can create a confusing trail of data.

Monetization

Successfully monetizing your online audience requires clear and consistent analytics and reporting that can maximize revenue opportunities.

Speed and flexibility

Delivering an OTT video service requires major moving parts that can take weeks of planning. You need a turnkey solution to help you get to market faster in terms of content preparation, delivery, display, monetization, analytics and reporting.

Investment and risk

Traditional OTT solutions involve upfront costs of encoding hardware, software, storage and headcount before your OTT content even reaches its first viewer. These costs should shift to a platform-as-a-service model, resulting in significant cost savings and less risk.
