NEWS MOVE & DELIVER OTT Vimond Media Solutions is to offer its OTT customers a fuller service after agreeing a commercial partnership with Fastly, the real-time CDN. The combined offering will be able to process live or on demand video streams using common video formats, the moment the video is requested by a user. “It’s great to be able to package Fastly’s CDN into our service when customers want a complete service,” said Helge Hibraaten, chief executive of Vimond. “Combining the Vimond platform with the high performance of Fastly is a great basis for an outstanding online media service.” IP transmission LiveU is predicting that more than 300 of its IP-based live video transmission devices will be used by more than 80 international broadcasters during this summer’s Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. The company is estimating that at least 15,000 live video sessions will take place with potentially more than 50TB of data set to be transmitted from its various uplink products. LiveU chief executive Samuel Wasserman said: “We’re already seeing tremendous build up to this year’s Rio Olympics with multiple orders coming in from our customers worldwide. Continuing our success supporting large global sporting events, were looking forward to playing a central role in bringing live action to viewers around the world.” Dynamic advertising Yospace is providing dynamic advertisement replacement technology for Sky Go, the online television service from Sky. In addition to enabling dynamic ad serving on Sky Go Linear for the first time, the broadcaster is also able to make use of its Sky AdSmart technology across connected devices. With dynamic ad serving advertisers can overlay ads aimed at selected audiences based on conventional broad TV demographics, or precisely targeted Sky AdSmart audiences. Yospace is said to frame-accurately splice replacement advertisements so that viewers don’t notice. Jamie West, deputy managing director of Sky Media, said: “We wanted to provide a seamless viewing experience, but also consider Sky Go viewers more personalised relationships with their TV content. With these aspirations in mind, it became clear very quickly that Yospace’s platform was the most innovative and technically robust.” IP transport Dejero will feature its latest IP connectivity developments for ENG and remote broadcasting at NAB (booth N2918).
