Bitmovin, MainStreaming integration
March 22, 2023
Video streaming infrastructure provider Bitmovin, and VoD and live video streaming delivery specialist MainStreaming, are partnering to integrate MainStreaming’s Content Hosting and Management with Bitmovin’s suite of video streaming solutions to deliver broadcast-quality streaming experiences for audiences worldwide.
The partnership will deliver a joint solution, with Bitmovin’s cloud-first Live and VOD Encoder, Player, and Analytics solutions integrated with MainStreaming’s CMS and intelligent global media delivery network. The collaboration is designed to empower users to upload, encode, manage, publish, and stream content quickly, easily, and securely.
Bitmovin’s encoding solutions include the Bitmovin Next-Generation VOD Encoder, which has DRM, multi-codec streaming, 8K and multi-HDR support, and its Live Event Encoder. By integrating Bitmovin’s encoders with MainStreaming’s CMS, users can optimise their hosted files with Bitmovin’s Per-Title encoding, reach a larger viewer base and deliver high-quality streams over lower bandwidths. In addition, Bitmovin’s Player and Analytics ensure flawless playback across every major device and platform along with the ability to monetize content with client-side and server-side ad capabilities. The Bitmovin Player and Analytics also receive real-time granular data on each viewing instance and deliver adaptive live and on-demand content over the best route through MainStreaming’s CDN Edge.
“We are pleased to onboard our partnership with Bitmovin to provide a turnkey solution that will enable OTT product leaders, D2C streamers, telcos and broadcasters to easily enter the future of sustainable EDGE distribution,” stated Antonio G. Corrado, CEO of MainStreaming. “Our Edge video delivery network is developed to be easy to set up, fully managed, and scalable so that our clients can focus on their core business of creating creative content and maximizing their potential. This joint solution delivers robust video streaming and VoD for our clients, improving content delivery, audience reach, revenue generation, analytics, and reducing expenses.”
Bitmovin’s and MainStreaming’s collaboration focuses on delivering the best quality of service (QoS), quality of experience (QoE), and seamless scalability for companies and their viewers across each industry. They have done this by simplifying the setup process for developers of any level and background, ensuring the best viewing experience for audiences through proprietary technology, and increasing return on investment with a pay-as-you-go pricing structure.
“Our joint solution with MainStreaming accelerates the pace in which video streaming companies can manage, launch and scale their services and ensures an exceptional viewing experience for all audiences, regardless of location or which device they are streaming from,” said Dave Rushton, Director, EMEA Channel at Bitmovin. “I am incredibly proud we’ve joined forces with MainStreaming to combine our expertise in delivering the broadcast-quality streaming experiences audiences expect and deserve.”
