May 31, 2012

Broadcast International, a leading provider of video-powered broadcast solutions, and Beenius, the most progressive interactive TV middleware provider, have partnered to offer a suite of solutions that include the highest quality video processing with BI’s CodecSys transcoder platform, and Beenius’ open, flexible and feature-rich Interactive TV service delivery platform, Beesmart. the solution is being demonstrated in Broadcast International’s booth #819 at Expo Canitec, a trade show and conference targeting the Mexican cable industry being held in Acapulco from May 30 – June 1.

Beesmart’s modular architecture and open design enable it to be used in different environments including IPTV, Over-the-Top and Cable Television – all with a single platform. CodecSys’ patented multi-codec process delivers higher quality video at lower bandwidth rates featuring seamless integration with core video management systems.

“Our customers want a quick go-to-market solution, and the combination of CodecSys and Beenius fills that requirement with a seamlessly integrated solution for video optimization and management,” said Steve Jones, general manager of BI’s CodecSys Division. “Beenius has convenient tools for easy customization of content and the user interface and offers a flexible, scalable customer management interface. Like CodecSys, Beenius also enables cloud based solutions.”

At Canitec, the front end, customer facing solution will be demonstrated by Beenius while CodecSys will demonstrate the back end encoding, transcoding and publishing solutions.

Jones added, “We are excited to exhibit together at Canitec since Latin America is a key growth market for both Broadcast International and Beenius. We are also working together in Europe and look forward to cooperating on projects in that region as well.”
