Global video delivery leader MainStreaming has partnered with Sky Italia to provide high-quality video to the Sky Go, Sky Q and Now TV platforms via fibre.
MainStreaming’s HyperNode technology allows broadcasters and OTT TV to transmit video in real-time.
The partnership is designed to provide Sky with a distribution solution that meets all streaming needs for premium live, linear and on-demand content.
MainStreaming COO Philippe Tripodi said: "As the demand to move videos from satellite to online is constantly increasing for broadcasters, our advanced technology and ability to be agile with client needs enables us to meet the requirements of big global players like Sky."
Sky Italy broadband CTO Massimo Bertolotti added: "The innovation brought by MainStreaming makes us the market leader in the distribution of online video, and at the same time, allows us to renew the way video is transmitted."
