Waoo! selects RGB for OTT platform

Danish broadband provider Waoo! has deployed RGB’s video Multiprocessing Gateway (VMG) and TransAct Packager, to provide a transcoding and packaging solution for its new over-the-top video service.

Waoo!, which delivers fibre-based network services to nearly 200,000 households, launched an OTT platform in June. It is using RGB’s VMG  and TransAct Packager to roll out 36 channels streaming in Microsoft Smooth Streaming adaptive format to PC-based consumers, adding to its existing TV service of 190 TV channels, with plans to extend the service to 50 channels with four adaptive profiles for each channel.

Working alongside the VMG, RGB’s TransAct Packager delivers adaptive streaming capabilities, providing Waoo!’s customers with video delivery by enabling the segmentation of video into chunks that are delivered using HTTP.

“Not only does RGB’s technology perfectly meet our needs, it also adds value to our long-term business strategy and facilitates our rapid expansion,” said Aage Kudsk, chief technology officer at Waoo!. “It’s clear to us that OTT services are the future of video delivery, and we wanted a solution that could implement our vision to provide cutting-edge TV services to our customers. Upon careful review and testing we chose RGB for its flexible, high-quality video processing platform, which can be scaled up over time to meet customer demand.”
