SatLink/Pi Telecom: SatLink partners with Pi12 September 2014
At IBC SatLink Communications is announcing a new partnership with Pi Telecom, a specialist in the development and marketing of interactive video solutions for hybrid (DVB+IP), IPTV and OTT networks. Through this partnership, SatLink said it will bring the best of TV online by launching an end-to-end (E2E) OTT cloud-based platform. The platform will enable broadcasters and multi-channel TV operators to offer an immediate TV everywhere service to subscribers on all screens while generating new revenue streams.
The E2E OTT cloud-based platform is being demonstrated on SatLink’s IBC stand.
The solution is available through what SatLink describes as a cost-effective, pay-per-service model, able to deliver a ready-to-launch managed service via the cloud within days, while avoiding the expense and time associated with creating an OTT broadcasting network.
Designed for broadcasters and operators, the E2E OTT Cloud Platform is said to offer a full telco grade broadcasting experience from the aggregation of global multi TV channels, through to the transcoding, live content streaming, VoD library, management tools and creation of new feeds on an easy-to-use, TV-like unified user experience on all screens. Broadcasters and operators also have the option to distribute set-top boxes and maximise profits through the platform’s monetisation features, resulting, says SatLink, in their reaching more viewers on more devices and extending interaction with their audience.
