Thomson Video Networks has announced that its ViBE(TM) VS7000 multi-screen video platform has been fully tested and certified for use with Anevia’s ViaMotion system for catch-up TV, over-the-top (OTT) video streaming, and on-demand content delivery. Together, the two systems provide OTT video transcoding, packaging, and streaming solution for telecom carriers, broadcast services providers, and content owners.
The Thomson ViBE VS7000 OTT encoder uses a multi-profile encoding technology to stream video content to a range of devices including smartphones, tablets, and PCs as well as set-top boxes and IP connected TVs. Today’s viewers expect to access content whenever and however they choose, through their service portal or favourite app and via services such as catch-up TV, pause TV, or VOD. Time-shifting and on-demand features can now be accessed on any screen through an OTT video delivery infrastructure that combines the transcoding performance of the ViBE VS7000 with the packaging and streaming capabilities of ViaMotion, the company claims.
“This integrated OTT solution combines the ViBE VS7000’s excellent video transcoding along with multi-screen packaging and streaming through ViaMotion,” said Damien Lucas, vice president of sales and product marketing, Anevia. “We are pleased to partner with Thomson Video Networks to provide our joint customers with an interoperable and integrated solution for delivering high-quality content through both live and VOD access.”
“Anevia is a leader in developing and deploying multi-screen delivery solutions that enable new viable services such as catch-up TV or start-over, which makes it a very natural partner for us,” said Eric Gallier, vice president of marketing at Thomson Video Networks. “The Anevia ViaMotion product and the ViBE VS7000 encoding solution are fully interoperable, which makes the combined solution easy to deploy and risk-free for our customers.”
