Octoshape, a cloud-based OTT streaming technology provider, and AirTies Wireless Networks, a supplier of advanced technology to the broadcast and broadband industry, have announced a partnership for high quality OTT IPTV delivery, fueled by customer production launches with premium content.
The AirTies – Octoshape solution combines the best of both companies, leveraging AirTies’ proven and operator class STB architecture and incorporating Octoshape’s disruptive video acceleration technologies. The video acceleration is achieved by optimising standard streaming formats to be delivered via high performance IETF standard, Multicast-enabled protocols over the public Internet.
“Integrating Octoshape’s InfiniteHD breaks the barriers of geographical reach and TV quality viewing for OTT IPTV where traditional streaming solutions fall short,” says Bulent Celebi Founder and Chairman at AirTies Wireless Networks. “Watching an AirTies-Octoshape powered experience is equal or even better than a traditional broadcast equivalent. The combined solution enables our customers to increase their consumer footprint by addressing subscribers beyond their network boundaries and reducing time to market.”
“The partnership with AirTies is another major step forward in enabling the transition from Broadcast TV to Broadband TV on connected devices. Our combined customers can now enjoy the same TV quality, scale, and economics that traditional broadcast systems have historically guaranteed” said Michael Koehn Milland, CEO of Octoshape. “Our joint solution represents a major opportunity for our customers to increase revenues by offering services in new markets, at the same time enabling the Internet as a true TV scale medium.”
