BROADPEAK DEMOS OTT MULTICAST DE­LIV­ERY

MULTISCREEN OTT DE­LIV­ERY VIA DVB-T2 CRU­CIAL FOR AFRICAN MAR­KET

Digital Studio - - NEWS UPDATE -

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.
