At IBC2018, Broadpeak will demonstrate its solutions for not only cable, telecom, and satellite operators but also for content providers, including a CDN for managed networks and OTT distribution, origin packager, ad insertion, and comprehensive video delivery analytics.
The company will demonstrate its nanoCDN multicast ABR solution, which makes live HTTP video delivery to any device truly scalable by turning millions of broadband gateways, cable modems, Wi-Fi routers, and STBs into active components of an operator's content delivery infrastructure. Leveraging home networks, operators can cost-effectively manage the consumption peaks of live multiscreen services for millions of simultaneous viewers using only a few megabits per second from their network.
The Cloud PVR from Broadpeak will also be a key highlight at IBC2018. Providing operators with a simple, scalable, and flexible solution for delivering time-shifted TV services, Broadpeak's solution enables subscribers to launch multiple recordings on various channels simultaneously without any constraint on the available bandwidth or the number of tuners on the reception device.
Broadpeak will introduce new features of its nanoCDN solution for satellite, which allows operators to deliver a true OTT experience while preserving the quality of traditional satellite distribution. Broadpeak's nanoCDN for satellite allows operators to provide live TV, VOD, and catch-up TV content.
By leveraging storage available on the receiver, operators can further expand their offering to include advanced non-linear services such as time-shifting or start-over TV for increased monetisation. The solution can be combined with a hybrid broadband network or used without internet access.
Broadpeak will demonstrate its origin packager complemented with video delivery analytics, which enables content providers to deliver secure live, time-shift TV, and VOD services to any device. In addition, the company will highlight its watermarking solution in partnership with NAGRA NexGuard. Integration between NexGuard watermarking and Broadpeak's BroadCache Box allows content providers to protect live and VoD content on every screen.
