Orange is installing Broadpeak video processing technology for the delivery of advanced video services for its mobile and IPTV services in France.
Broadpeak’s BkS350 origin packager and recorder will provide the telco with advanced features related to video processing for delivery to any type of screen with a superior quality of experience (QoE), the company said.
Broadpeak’s BkS350 origin and packaging server is capable of recording linear services in one format and dynamically packaging the content in the requested ABR format. This, said Broadpeak, will allow Orange to offer viewers a greater array of services.
Orange will also use Broadpeak’s BkS400 HTTP video cache servers and BkM100 video delivery manager. The BkS400 server can cache content at the headend level, reducing the load at the origin level and offering high streaming capacity.
“Orange has a track record for delivering world-class video services, and this partnership reflects that commitment,” said Jacques Le Mancq, CEO, Broadpeak .
“Our video delivery solutions are highly scalable and future-proof, making them perfect to a competitive operator like Orange that is continuously growing, launching new services, and enhancing QoE for subscribers.”
Orange has a 10% share of the IPTV market in Europe, according to recent research from Dataxis.
