Digital Rapids has been chosen by Foxtel to provide encoding and streaming solutions to underpin its new video initiatives in Australia. Foxtel has purchased StreamZ Live adaptive streaming encoders and the Digital Rapids Broadcast Manager multi-encoder management system to power the new Foxtel Go App.
The Digital Rapids encoders and management software are being used to provide IP streams for Foxtel on Xbox 360, Foxtel on Connected TV, and the Foxtel Go App. They were also used to provide IP streams for the hugely successful Foxtel LONDON 2012 Olympic Games App.
“Foxtel Go is an exciting new way for our customers to watch our premium TV shows, series and sport on the go, and it was imperative the service be built on a technical foundation that delivers the superior quality and reliability that our customers demand,” said Foxtel Executive Director of Product, Jim Rudder. “Digital Rapids solutions met our stringent criteria, and their outstanding support is also a critical factor to our success.”
