Broadpeak streamlines multiscreen delivery

September 1, 2015

Broadpeak, a provider of content delivery network (CDN) technologies and live and VoD servers for cable, IPTV, OTT, hybrid, and mobile TV operators worldwide, today added the BkS350 origin packager with on-the-fly packaging capabilities to its range of streaming servers. Using the BkS350 origin packager, operators can dynamically convert recorded and VoD content into any ABR streaming format while securing content with DRM encryption. By enabling operators to package video content on the fly, the BkS350 reduces storage costs and optimises resources for multiscreen delivery, making it the ideal solution for a wide range of applications, including VoD and cloud PVR services.

“Due to the number of adaptive bit rate streaming formats and DRM systems in use today, multiscreen delivery often requires significant storage resources, making it quite expensive especially for cloud PVR private copy implementations,” said Jacques Le Mancq, CEO of Broadpeak. “With our new BkS350 origin server, operators don’t need to store content in a wide range of ABR formats because content is stored only once and adapted on-demand to any device by leveraging on-the-fly packaging. This dynamic approach to multiscreen delivery dramatically reduces capital and operational costs.”
