BROADPEAK DEMOS OTT MULTICAST DELIVERY
MULTISCREEN OTT DELIVERY VIA DVB-T2 CRUCIAL FOR AFRICAN MARKET
At AfricaCom 2018, Broadpeak showcased its solution for OTT multiscreen video delivery via DVB-T2 networks with SENTECH, a leading digital terrestrial TV service provider in subSaharan Africa. SENTECH relied on Broadpeak’s nanoCDN multicast ABR solution and thirdparty technologies from Teamcast and Noovo to cost-efficiently deliver HQ video to all screens.
“We are excited to expand our footprint into OTT and CDN environments in the near future and address the growing consumer demand for TV on every screen,” said Mlamli Booi, the CEO of SENTECH. This will really sweat the DTT infrastructure allowing both rural and urban to have the same experience of OTT offerings.”
Broadpeak’s BkE200 transcaster server transforms unicast streams into multicast. Broadpeak’s nanoCDN agent was deployed in DVB-T2 home gateways from Noovo to convert multicast streams back into unicast and deliver the content to ABR devices. Teamcast will provide encapsulation and DVB-T2 modulation technologies. The solution enables the delivery of video content to millions of simultaneous viewers using a single multicast network session. “The African OTT market is booming, and we are thrilled to partner with SENTECH, Teamcast, and Noovo to facilitate its growth,” said Jacques Le Mancq, CEO at Broadpeak.
