ORS deploys Broadpeak solution
May 17, 2023
Broadpeak, a provider of content delivery network (CDN) and video streaming solutions for content providers and pay-TV operators worldwide, has announced that Austrian broadcaster ORS has deployed a comprehensive solution fully managed by Broadpeak to simplify the management of its OTT video services. With Broadpeak’s video delivery solution, ORS can provide live, VOD, and catch-up TV services with high reliability and an exceptional quality of experience.
“ORS provides television to 3.8 million households in Austria, and our primary goal is to ensure outstanding service continuity. Broadpeak enables us to deliver the highest quality of experience to millions of concurrent viewers during live events,” said Norbert Grill, chief technology officer at ORS. “They helped us achieve this last year during one of the biggest live events across the world – the major football tournament in Qatar. It worked so well that even our operations team was able to enjoy the action from Qatar. Having Broadpeak fully manage and maintain our video platform reduces our risk of service failure, saves us a significant amount of time, and future-proofs our business.”
Broadpeak’s BkS350 Origin Packager combines a just-in-time packaging feature and a built-in cache mechanism, reducing the need for encoding and storage resources and providing high-throughput capacity that generates important savings for ORS.
The solution also includes Broadpeak’s BkM100 Video Delivery Mediator, BkA200 Video Delivery Monitoring, BkYou Video Personalization Solution, and BkT100 file transcoder for video streaming. ORS can also use Broadpeak’s solutions to support advanced features such as time-shift TV, low-latency live sports streaming, video thumbnails, and personalized ad insertion.
“Our managed services are the perfect option for broadcasters like ORS that don’t want to worry about daily operations, upgrades, monitoring, or troubleshooting,” said Jacques Le Mancq, CEO at Broadpeak. “By fully managing ORS’ platform with a set of high-performance tools, enhanced cybersecurity, and a team of skilled engineers, we’re enabling amazing-quality streaming experiences.”
