Thomson Video Networks has revealed that Hutchison Drei, the Austrian telco, has migrated to a new live video distribution platform based on the ViBE VS7000 multi-screen video encoding platform. Working in tandem with Broadpeak streaming technology, the ViBE VS7000 enables Drei to offer OTT video services to mobile users and home viewers alike on the complete range of screens, including smartphone, tablet, PC/Mac and future-oriented TV streaming via Google Chromecast and Apple Airplay.
“With its superior video quality, advanced architecture, and operational flexibility, the ViBE VS7000 is the ideal platform for us to take our OTT and IPTV video offerings to the next level. This move has already had a direct impact on the growth of our business. Enhancing the user experience has led to greater client satisfaction, which is driving usage and increasing demand for our services over other mobile operators,” said Günter Lischka, senior head of marketing at Drei Austria.
