Broadcast International Inc., a provider of video-powered broadcast solutions, and aioTV, an over-the-top-television (OTT) cloud video aggregation platform provider, entered into an agreement to provide joint services to mutual customers and partners who deliver next-generation OTT content.
“Our customers are moving quickly to deliver TV anywhere,” said Steve Jones, Broadcast International CodecSys Division’s general manager. “Broadcast International’s award winning CodecSys encoding, transcoding and media publishing platform coupled with aioTV’s consumer interface and back-end services creates a compelling and quickly deployed end-to-end OTT solution.”
Multiple sources of video content are aggregated by aioTV into a user experience that looks like television middleware, but which runs on iPad, Android tablets, PC, MAC, GoogleTV, iPhone, Android phones, Android set-top boxes, and Amino set-top boxes, said Jim Anderson, aioTV’s COO. “Having that content processed by CodeSys ensures the highest quality video delivered at dramatically lower bitrates,” he said.
Adding aioTV’s back office solution dynamically creates a user experience for each viewer that is fresh, relevant and personalized, the companies say. aioTV’s conditional access platform enables the creation of service/channel packages customized for subscribers anywhere in the world, they added.
