Cloud streaming specialist Octoshape has teamed up with TV technology and conditional access specialist Nagra to enable the secure delivery of broadcast TV via the internet.
The pair will integrate Octoshape’s multicast platform, Infinite HD-M, with Nagra’s multiscreen solution, Nagra MediaLive.
The combined solution extends to devices such as PC, tablets and smartphones by using Nagra’s secure player, Nagra Media Player. The deal between the pair was announced at CES.
“Adding Octoshape’s network into our multiscreen solution will enable an even higher quality end-user experience with a financially compelling offer for service providers by bringing more efficiency into the mix,” said Jean-Michel Puiatti, senior vice-president, multiscreen product unit of Nagra. “This option brings a unique quality and economic value proposition through CDN cost optimisation to service providers that implement Nagra MediaLive.”
