Synamedia to reveal new video network solutions at IBC

Video software provider Synamedia has announced a range of new additions to its video network portfolio to be unveiled at IBC 2019.

The company says that these solutions are designed to improve the quality and cost effectiveness of live streaming along with helping customers make better use of virtualisation and the cloud.

At the show, Synamedia will demonstrate its virtualised Digital Content Manager (DCM) with Smart Rate Control, showing how automation using machine learning can “optimise quality levels across the entire footprint to deliver a premium live OTT viewing experience cost effectively”.

The company will also preview content-aware encoding, powered by AI and machine learning techniques with a demo that shows the integration of information via algorithm.

Lastly, the company will launch its PowerVu Insights module for video operations teams in the distribution segment. This incorporates a set of monitoring, analytics and remote troubleshooting tools for IP-connected receivers to help customers monitor the video distribution chain and drive greater efficiencies.  

Julien Signes, senior vice president at Synamedia said, “We understand the challenges pay-TV and D2C providers face as they look to grow their business in a rapidly changing, competitive market, and are continually innovating and fine-tuning our end-to-end video network technologies to give customers that extra competitive edge. Helping customers to boost workflow efficiencies, cut costs and transform their services on prem, in the cloud or in a hybrid model is in our DNA. At IBC we will be showcasing a whole raft of innovations that will help them do just that.”
