Thomson and VisualOn deliver MPEG-DASH

Thomson Video Networks and VisualOn, a multimedia software company, have partnered to implement and support the latest industry standard in high-quality streaming media capabilities: MPEG Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (MPEG-DASH). Thomson’s ViBE VS7000 multi-screen video platform now delivers MPEG-DASH streams to devices using OnStream MediaPlayer+, VisualOn’s multi-media player that enables high-quality, cross-platform, audio and video playback on any device.  "We are committed to delivering today’s most sophisticated streaming technology, and the use of MPEG-DASH is an emerging trend that provides our customers with the highest possible video quality and playback across all types of connected devices," said Yang Cai, CEO of VisualOn. "Our integrated solution with Thomson Video Networks puts web TV and over-the-top services at the forefront of the industry."  "The ViBE VS7000 is an incredibly versatile powerhouse for convergent media operators," said Eric Gallier, vice president of marketing at Thomson Video Networks. "Versatility is a key requirement in the rapidly evolving web TV/OTT arena, and integrating with VisualOn’s OnStream MediaPlayer+ allows us to scale across connected devices to deliver high-quality content while using MPEG-DASH streaming." Combining functionality that would otherwise require parallel infrastructures for file-based and live encoding for multi-format output, the ViBE VS7000 video system integrates with external platforms through its built-in SOAP/web services. 14.A10
