Broadpeak To Showcase Products At TV Connect 2014

At TV Connect 2014, Broadpeak will showcase a comprehensive lineup of content delivery network (CDN), live, and VOD video server technologies that address operators' most critical needs: the ability to deliver video over cable, IPTV, OTT, and mobile networks in the most cost-effective manner possible while ensuring the highest possible quality of experience (QoE) for end users.
Key Products and Technology Demos
nanoCDN™ Video Delivery Technology
At TV Connect, Broadpeak will demonstrate enhancements to its award-winning nanoCDN™ technology. The first application of nanoCDN eliminates live multiscreen consumption peak issues by turning millions of broadband gateways or 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. This is done by implementing multicast support for Microsoft® Smooth Streaming and HLS formats.
In addition, the technology supports the reuse of IPTV multicast streams, which can be adapted in the home gateway to address HLS devices. No transcoding is done, and the processing resources used in the home gateway are minimal, allowing operators to launch new services at a reduced cost.
Broadpeak will also demonstrate a new video transparent caching application that allows operators to efficiently handle the growing volume of unmanaged video content on their backbones. The new application reduces peering costs for ISPs while optimizing an operator's network resources and improving the quality of experience (QoE) for end-users. The application paves the way for new business models, enabling operators to monetize the caching capability with content owners, without the latter needing to modify their set-up.
nanoCDN video transparent caching has been shortlisted for Best Network Technology for IP TV and OTT TV at TV Connect Awards 2014.
Streaming Servers and CDN Equipment
Unified Server
Also on display at TV Connect 2014 will be a range of streaming servers and CDN equipment from Broadpeak, including a unified video server capable of streaming both RTSP and ABR formats from a single appliance.
Broadpeak's high-performance streaming servers can stream media in any format, including the new MPEG-DASH standard, and feature a 40Gbps streaming capacity. Utilizing the company's streaming servers and CDN management suite, operators can offer delinearized TV services like cloud PVR, start-over, network time-shifting, and impulsive recording.
umbrellaCDN™ CDN Selection Tool
At TV Connect 2014, Broadpeak will highlight new features for umbrellaCDN™, a CDN selection product that allows content providers and operators to cost-effectively deliver live and VOD content with the best possible QoE. New features include the ability to offload traffic from an operator's network to a CDN as a service, and the display of QoS information coming from the players. umbrellaCDN also includes detailed analytics and real-time audience data.
With umbrellaCDN, the ideal CDN for each end-user request is selected according to operator-defined, rules-based parameters, such as end-user location, end-user ISP, group of content, time of day, QoS, type of network, and more. This enables content providers and operators to dynamically balance traffic between multiple CDNs to ensure a superior QoE for end users.
umbrellaCDN has been shortlisted for Best Cloud or CDN Service Delivery at TV Connect Awards 2014.
