Viaccess-Orca, Encoding.com join forces to boost OTT media processing efficency24 March 2017
Viaccess-Orca is teaming with Encoding.com to streamline the preparation of VoD content for OTT multiscreen applications.
Viaccess-Orca’s cloud-based TV Everywhere as a Service (TVaaS) is now integrated with Encoding.com’s cloud media processing platform, meaning pay-TV operators can quickly prepare and manage video content for multiscreen viewing from a single pane.
The joint solution can be fully managed in the cloud, with monitoring and control enabled by the operator.
Viaccess-Orca’s TVaaS simplifies multiscreen content preparation and delivery, and allows operators to manage the entire workflow from transcoding to packaging, encryption, publishing, personalisation, and delivery.
By employing Encoding.com’s media processing platform with TVaaS, operators can scale up and down as needed, with sub-ten-second average queue times, guaranteed queue time SLAs, and superior video quality.
“Speed to market and video quality are critical requirements in today’s OTT world,” said Jeff Malkin, president at Encoding.com.
“Our cloud media processing platform is designed to accommodate the ebbs and flows in media processing workflows. Whether operators are working with a few or thousands of files, we can automatically scale the necessary resources to process files simultaneously and in a fraction of real-time.
“With Viaccess-Orca’s well-rounded approach to multiscreen content preparation and delivery, this partnership is a win-win for pay-TV operators looking to be competitive in the OTT multiscreen environment.”
