Broadpeak to highlight multicast ABR and cloud DVR

CDN technology specialist Broadpeak will use ANGA Com to highlight multicast adaptive bit-rate solutions and cloud DVR.

Broadpeak will use ANGA COM to demonstrate its nanoCDN multicast ABR solution, which makes live HTTP video delivery to any device scalable by turning millions of broadband gateways, cable modems, Wi-Fi routers, and set-tops into active components of an operator’s content delivery infrastructure.

As a pioneer provider of ABR multicast technology, Broadpeak claims to be revolutionising live multiscreen video delivery. The company’s solution leverages home networks, allowing operators to manage the consumption peaks of live multiscreen services for millions of simultaneous viewers using a few megabits per second from their network, according to the company.

nanoCDN has been deployed by leading operators worldwide for live television delivery to any screen. Several use cases for nanoCDN will be shown, including ultra-low latency for live video streaming and quick start, which prevents the buffering at the beginning of a live content stream to ensure quality of experience for end users.

Broadpeak’s Cloud PVR solution is used by large pay TV operators globally to deliver time-shifted TV services, according to the company.

It allows subscribers to launch multiple recordings on various channels simultaneously without any constraint on the available bandwidth or the number of tuners on the reception device, the company says.

With Cloud PVR, service providers can deliver start-over and catch-up TV, as well as impulsive recording, using a shared copy or private copy model. The recorded content can be processed on the fly to be viewed on any device type.
