SES used IBC to announce what it described as a next-generation software solution which it has developed with Quadrille to deliver content over satellite for video and OTT services.
The strategic partnership has created its software suite and technology infrastructure for SES Video’s new generation VoD everywhere managed service platform.
France-based Quadrille is one of the key components of SES’s next-gen VoD platform. New functionalities include the integration of linear events and the ability for TV viewers to press the start over button. The VoD platform is also hosted on much higher bandwidth which enables faster configurable content refresh rates.
Xavier Battas, CEO of Quadrille, said: “We are very proud to have co-developed these push technologies with SES Video and to incorporate our innovative technology into SES’s next-gen VoD platform. Through this managed service platform, SES Video and Quadrille are extending the content arm and to reach everybody, everywhere. Our DNA has always been broadcast-centric, and this is a great achievement for our company and for our technical team. This partnership with SES is a major step forward for us and the best is yet to come.”
