Arqiva and MainStreaming are working together to offer distribution services for the streaming industry.
The partnership combines MainStreaming’s CDN technology streaming experience with Arqiva’s global media infrastructure and managed services capability in order to offer more scalable, flexible, and programming-centric content distribution services.
According to the two companies, existing streaming distribution networks are not well suited to deliver either the quality of service required by service providers or the quality of experience expected by audiences. The growing carbon footprint of streaming services is also a concern for both providers and audiences. The partnership between the two companies aims to address these issues and challenge conventional approaches to content distribution.
Antonio G. Corrado, CEO, MainStreaming, said: “Mainstreaming’s technology makes true edge computing for the media industry a reality, and already delivers important benefits for our industry-leading customers. We are excited to work together with Arqiva and the media industry to take advantage of our real-time, ultra-low latency, highly scalable streaming capabilities to deliver broadcast-grade streaming and also create new and exciting edge applications for video delivery.”
Clive White, CTO, Arqiva, added: “The streaming world is changing fast and navigating the commercial and technical issues has never been harder. Arqiva and MainStreaming will be collaborating on a range of new capabilities and service offerings to meet these challenges with a view to optimising the customer experience and adding value to the biggest broadcasters in our core markets.”
