Fully managed solution gives MCTV more control and ensures high quality video streams for subscribers on every screen
Enghouse Networks, a leading global provider of telecommunications technology and IPTV SaaS platform solutions, and Broadpeak®, a leading provider of video streaming solutions to content providers and pay-TV operators worldwide, announced today that they are joining forces to optimize the video streaming service from MCTV, an Ohio-based cable operator.
MCTV employs a future-proof solution from Broadpeak and Enghouse to ensure high quality of service for subscribers on a wide variety of devices including Fire TV and Android (TM) devices.
“We have replaced our previous video platform with a solution from Broadpeak and Enghouse to further improve and strengthen the future of our video product offering,” said Katherine Gessner, President of MCTV. “MCTV prides itself on the excellent quality of its broadcasts and provides an exceptional experience for its customers. By leveraging Broadpeak’s expertise in video delivery with a high quality user experience enabled by Enghouse, we ensure the best possible streaming experience.”
MCTV will leverage Broadpeak’s advanced CDN, BkM100 Video Delivery Manager, BkS400 HTTP Video Cache Server and BkS350 Origin Packager to deliver live, catch-up TV, NPVR and VOD content to MCTV Stream subscribers . Broadpeak’s solutions are integrated with Enghouse EspialTV, a fully managed IPTV solution hosted in the cloud.
“We are honored that MCTV selected Enghouse EspialTV for this project because of our ability to deliver a great television experience,” said Mick McCluskey, vice president, product management, Enghouse Networks. “Enghouse is known for being flexible about operator needs. Our operations and delivery team have a thorough understanding of the video streaming environment that will help us deliver a highly flexible TV solution to MCTV with a short time to market. “
Broadpeak’s CDN solution will significantly improve QoE for MCTV Stream subscribers. With the BkM100 Video Delivery Mediator, MCTV can continuously monitor the popularity of content based on usage patterns and serve popular content from the most suitable HTTP video cache servers to reduce costs. MCTV will use Broadpeak’s BkS350 Origin Packager to securely broadcast live, time-shifted and VOD services to any device. On-demand packaging on the BkS350 will reduce MCTV’s need for coding and storage resources while providing high throughput capacity to maximize cost savings.
EspialTV delivers an award-winning user experience across all devices. With EspialTV, MCTV can easily customize the user interface of its video streaming service to address different market segments for consumers and businesses. Since EspialTV is a cloud-based SaaS solution, it can be deployed quickly and at low entry costs.
“We are thrilled that MCTV has chosen Broadpeak to improve their video streaming service,” said Jacques Le Mancq, Broadpeak CEO. “With our advanced CDN solution, MCTV can deliver a premium viewing experience that ensures high quality on every screen while increasing the efficiency of ABR delivery.”
