In what it says makes it the first operator in the world to offer such capability, the pay-TV division of Israeli telco, Bezeq, Yes, is deploying Synamedia’s end-to-end video network portfolio to achieve what it claims is broadcast-equivalent latency for its cloud-based, internet-only TV services.

YES interface 29July2020The deployment is an extension of Yes’s long-standing relationship with Synamedia as it phases out its direct-to-home (DTH) satellite service and moves to all-IP services by 2026. This is underpinned by the Infinite cloud platform, security solutions and services, as well as its video network technologies.

Yes says it chose Synamedia because it was the only vendor with an end-to-end video network able to minimise latency at every stage of the workflow - from encoding through to the CDN and player – to match broadcast latency while also minimising bandwidth requirements. Synamedia says that its technology is designed to give viewers a consistently high-quality viewing experience with no interruptions or buffering while allowing Yes to control costs. The deployment includes the Edge Media Streamer private CDN and virtualised digital content manager (DCM) to provide more control over service quality, costs and operations than a public CDN.

“After a competitive tender, we selected Synamedia to help us transition fully to IP and deliver on our feature-rich roadmap - including our commitment to match broadcast latency, delivering an exceptional subscriber experience,” said Itzhak Elyakim, VP Engineering and CTO at Yes. “Only Synamedia offered an end-to-end solution able to meet all of our requirements, ensuring we avoided the need to integrate any third-party products.

Yes has always been at the forefront of innovation. With its bold decision to offer carrier-grade streaming services with world-beating low latency, Yes is yet again breaking new ground,” added Synamedia CEO Yves Padrines. “And, by using our Infinite cloud TV platform, Yes is benefiting from streamlined operations and reduced operational costs as subscribers enjoy high-quality streaming services packed with many new features.
