Broadpeak Achieves Video Streaming at 725 Gbps With New BkS450 High-Performance Software

Broadpeak®, a leading provider of content delivery network (CDN) and video streaming solutions for content providers and pay-TV operators worldwide, today announced the launch of its new BkS450 high-performance video streaming software, which brings outstanding cost savings and energy efficiency to video streaming infrastructures. When running on a 3rd gen Intel Xeon Scalable processor, the BkS450 software enables video service providers to deliver low-latency 4K and 8K video streaming services, VR content, and other bandwidth-intensive offerings at a reduced cost while consuming significantly less power than traditional video servers.

“Introducing the next-gen BkS450 software to our solutions family underscores our commitment to enabling greener video streaming while ensuring a superior quality of experience for consumers at a reasonable cost,” said Nivedita Nouvel, vice president of product marketing at Broadpeak. “Working with Intel, we have achieved a giant leap forward in video streaming performance and energy efficiency, helping our customers deliver advanced video streaming services with increased agility, a smaller hardware footprint, and a reduced impact on the environment.”

The BkS450 video streaming software offers a massive improvement in performance and sustainability, which is critical as video service providers look to address growing concerns about the energy impact of video streaming. Leveraging an ultra-efficient usage of hardware resources, the BkS450 delivers video services at 725 Gbps in HTTP on servers consuming 900 Watts, reducing the power required to stream 1 Gbps by a factor of 4 compared with previous-generation video streaming solutions. Broadpeak obtained this measurement using a sophisticated benchmark tool developed in collaboration with Intel, recreating a production environment.

This collaboration demonstrates the power of software optimized with Intel Xeon CPUs. The two companies will continue to work together and push the performance-per-Watt envelope toward a more sustainable future for the rapidly growing media streaming market.

In addition, Broadpeak’s BkS450 video streamer features a high-density design that saves crucial space in data centers. Available as a container running on off-the-shelf hardware, the BkS450 eliminates the need for operators to use proprietary components, speeding up the time to market for new video streaming services while enhancing operators’ flexibility, operational efficiency, and cost savings. Furthermore, the BkS450 video streamer is future-proof, natively supporting all of the latest HTTP protocols — as well as DASH and HLS low-latency streaming formats — to ensure a flawless video streaming experience.

The new caching software engine built into the BkS450 will also extract maximum performance from more modest and cost-effective hardware configurations, including existing CDN deployments. This innovation unlocks CDN capacity across the board and better uses resources. This is only the first step, as Broadpeak plans to reach even higher numbers by continuously leveraging the new capabilities made available at the hardware level in its software.

Hiltron to Show Latest-Generation HMAM LEO Motorised Satcom Flyaway at GovSatCom 2023

Hiltron Communications has chosen the upcoming GovSatCom 2023 in Luxembourg at which to promote its latest-generation HMAM LEO high speed motorised tracking antenna mount. The event will be held in the European Convention Center on February 23rd.

Based on over 10 years of Hiltron experience in designing, manufacturing and integrating motorised satellite mounts, HMAM LEO is capable of accommodating parabolic antennas of up to 2.4 metres diameter. Supported on a high-stability ground pillar, it incorporates the computing resources needed to track satellites using the NORAD TLE (two-line element) data format which defines satellite locations based on their location and velocity. The system can lock onto the desired LEO satellite within the approximately 10 minute timespan where the target satellite is in sight.
