Voddler partners with Conviva
February 25, 2016
Voddler Group, the cloud-streaming innovator, has signed a partnership with OTT experience management company, Conviva, which will see Voddler Group’s VoddlerNet and Conviva’s Precision and Conviva’s Experience Insights combine to create an online video delivery solution that is particularly appropriate for emerging markets, where connectivity and bandwidth are often a challenge.
VoddlerNet combines controlled peer-assisted delivery with direct streaming from the source provider. This hybrid video streaming solution greatly expands the reach of streaming video services while maintaining the highest possible Quality of Experience (QoE). Precision is part of Conviva’s Intelligent Control Platform, which gathers continuous telemetry from billions of streams, allowing it to build a real-time performance map of the Internet. Precision relies on this data to continuously and automatically optimise both the streaming configuration of the source of a user’s video content and the choice of CDN. The integration of Conviva Experience Insights delivers real-time QoE metrics, giving users confidence that their customers’ expectations are being met. Together, the systems will optimise the video source quality, streaming configuration, and delivery paths, delighting customers with an amazing viewing experience each and every time.
“Conviva is the perfect partner for Voddler, because both companies share a passion for quality of experience,” said Adam Lewis, CEO of Voddler Group. “They have taken their expertise in measuring quality of service and quality of experience, and built onto it products that react to the insights their analytics provide. VoddlerNet’s ability to continuously adjust for every service subscriber – even during periods of high demand or for users without the best quality broadband service – allows us to ensure the highest possible video quality and viewing experience at all times.”
