MediaKind has extended its partnership with Google Cloud enabling its new end-to-end Aquila Streaming solution to be offered as-a-service on the Google Cloud Platform.
According to MediaKind, the partnership will enable its customers to leverage Google Cloud’s extensive ecosystem of solutions and assets in order to globally deploy media processing capabilities and optimise the distribution of their OTT services.
The new Aquila Streaming solution provides video bandwidth savings, low end-to-end latency and large storage reduction, offering support for all qualities of live video service up to UHD.
The Aquila Streaming solution can be deployed on bare metal, private Cloud, or in any Cloud service provider. According to MediaKind, the integration into the Google Cloud ecosystem enables it to provide access to a broader range of media applications and workloads through the Cloud, in areas such as containerisation, AI, machine learning and Android TV and Google Ad Insertion solutions, whilst offering a fully managed solution.
Angel Ruiz, CEO, MediaKind, said: “As consumer demand for live streamed content reaches an all-time high, service providers must find ever more creative methods to deliver quicker and more affordable OTT services at scale. By launching Aquila Streaming on Google Cloud Platform, our customers will benefit from a highly flexible service that adapts seamlessly to their existing infrastructure or digital transformation program, whether purpose built as an on-premise or Cloud native solution, hybrid Cloud or part of an end-to-end as-a-service offering.”
