Comigo has partnered with Keepixo on an end-to-end over-the-top (OTT) solution.

comigoThe companies have unveiled an integrated solution that consists of Comigo's OTT/IPTV platform, HEVC Android set-top boxes (STBs), the Comigo Experience Intelligence Engine and Keepixo's Genova software suite for OTT/IPTV headends.

The joint solution is being deployed by a major North American operator to deliver over 100 IPTV HD services in an OTT-like environment using HEVC.

“One of the key challenges that IPTV and OTT service providers face today is launching full multiscreen services with advanced capabilities ahead of the competition,” said Motty Lentzitzky, CEO at Comigo.

“By partnering with Keepixo, we are reducing integration complexity and bringing to market an HEVC- and MPEG-DASH-supported solution, allowing service providers to dramatically speed up time to market and significantly reduce bandwidth costs.”

At the core of the Comigo service platform is Comigo's Experience Intelligence Engine that connects Internet data to TV content in a contextual manner using advanced algorithms and big data technology. The Keepixo Genova software suite meanwhile offers workflow elements needed to build a multiscreen video workflow for OTT and IPTV distribution. The software includes a high-density, multi-rate H.264 and HEVC live encoder, file transcoder for video on demand (VOD) assets and a multi-format OTT packager.

“By working with Comigo, we are able to combine our high quality video transcoding solutions and Comigo's advanced TV platform,” said Jerome Blanc, COO at Keepixo. “We are proud of this collaboration, which brings OTT service providers an end-to-end, easy-to-deploy OTT platform with an exciting and feature-rich user experience.”
