Scandinavian cable company chooses Norigin Media´s cloud platform

September 4, 2018

A leading cable company in Scandinavia has chosen Norigin Media to host and manage over 100 TV channels. The distributor who provides fibre based broadband and premium TV services has migrated all its linear TV channels from Amazon´s AWS to Norigin Media´s Cloudncoder.

Norigin´s Linear-TV hosting and transcoding platform, Cloudncoder, has been chosen to manage an OTT (over-the-top) streaming service in Scandinavia. The agreement will cover capturing, transcoding and packaging of over 100 TV channels to be delivered to a CDN (content distribution network) chosen earlier by the operator. Cloudncoder will also be used to create catch-up content that this service offers. All the channels are encrypted by a multi-DRM (Digital Rights Management) solution.

Cloudncoder is a linear TV content hosting platform specifically designed for premium TV streaming services that are encrypted with DRM. Cloudncoder caters for multi-screen services that are available on smartphones, tablets, browsers and smart TVs.

Features such as catch-up, DVR (Digital Video Recording), time-shifting and encryption of content are customized with the Cloudncoder solution that caters to broadcasters and cable companies across Europe. Cloudncoder is already pre-integrated to all major CDNs globally as well as several multi-DRM platforms.

Ajey Anand, Norigin Media’s CEO added: “While public-cloud options are available and was used by this distributor before; broadcast-grade operations, support and downlinking services set Cloudncoder apart. As a TV-tech company for OTT streaming services; we like to lead by example and are happy to announce this agreement in our home market.”
