Stofa taps Elemental for multiscreen video processing

Danish pay TV operator Stofa has signed a deal with Elemental, with the latter processing, packaging and managing its live linear channels for its catch-up TV and multiscreen video services.

Elemental said its video infrastructure customises 150 TV channels – including 38 in high definition – for delivery to Stofa subscribers.

Stofa now uses Elemental Live to transcode live linear TV channels, Elemental Stream to package that content for multiscreen delivery, and Elemental Conductor to manage multiple live streams across the network.

The Danish triple play operator provides broadband subscribers with a full range of multiscreen services, including StartForfa for catch-up TV and WebTV for viewing live content using Apple iOS and Google Android devices.

“Due to the growing success of our multiscreen services, it is critical that we continually enhance our system to support new devices and video profiles as they come onto the market. The flexibility and scalability of the Elemental video platform allows us to do just that,” said Stofa’s chief technology officer, Thomas Helbo.
