Megacable improves TV QoE with Broadpeak
June 11, 2021
Broadpeak, a provider of content delivery network (CDN) and video streaming solutions for content providers and pay-TV operators worldwide, has announced that Megacable, one of the largest triple-play providers in Mexico, has optimised the delivery of its Xview+ streaming service with Broadpeak solutions.
Using Broadpeak’s CDN and nanoCDN multicast ABR, Megacable can deliver live, VoD, time-shift TV, catch-up TV, as well as premium TV offerings on the TV and any device, ensuring a superior quality of experience (QoE) for millions of simultaneous viewers while reducing delivery costs.
“Our Xview+ service is growing, and to guarantee an exceptional streaming experience for viewers, we needed a robust, high-performance CDN solution,” said Gerardo Seifert, chief marketing officer at Megacable. “With multicast ABR, we no longer have to worry about unpredictable peaks in traffic impacting streaming quality, and we’ve successfully unified video delivery to any screen. Broadpeak’s expertise in pioneering multicast ABR technology proved to be invaluable during this project, helping streamline our multiscreen video delivery as we continue to add more subscribers.”
“We are proud to partner with a major operator moving from a legacy offering to providing an easy-to-use and high-quality TV service for Mexican families at home and on the go on mobile devices with the Xview+ app,” said Jacques Le Mancq, CEO at Broadpeak. “Our nanoCDN multicast ABR solution solves two critical issues — scalability and quality of experience — with a future path to CMAF and low-latency streaming for Megacable.”
