Thomson Video Networks teams up with VisualOn for MPEG-DASH

Thomson Video Networks has teamed up with VisualOn to provide MPEG-DASH video delivery to connected devices.

Thomson’s ViBE VS7000 multi-screen video platform now delivers MPEG-DASH streams to devices using OnStream MediaPlayer+, VisualOn’s multi-media player that enables cross-platform audio and video playback on any device.

MPEG-DASH, the new standard for streaming media, has been incorporated into version 1.5 of the HbbTV initiative.

Combining functionality that would otherwise require parallel infrastructures for file-based and live encoding for multi-format output, the ViBE VS7000 video system integrates with external platforms through its built-in SOAP/web services, according to Thomson.

“The ViBE VS7000 is an incredibly versatile powerhouse for convergent media operators,” said Eric Gallier, vice-president of marketing at Thomson Video Networks. “Versatility is a key requirement in the rapidly evolving webTV/OTT arena, and integrating with VisualOn’s OnStream MediaPlayer Plus allows us to scale across connected devices to deliver high-quality content while using MPEG-DASH streaming.”
