Boston Limited launches Stream+, an optimised solution for large-scale ultra-high-density live video encoding

Boston Limited, today announced the launch of Stream+ during a keynote address from Manoj Nayee, managing director Boston Limited, during the Xilinx Developer Forum (XDF) Europe, 12 – 13 November, The Hague, Netherlands.

Stream+ is an optimised solution enabling large scale ultra-high-density live video encoding. The new appliance is configured using Supermicro® building blocks and powered by Xilinx Alveo accelerator cards and V-Nova’s P+ software.

Hyperscale video services like social and e-sports networks need to encode and serve vast numbers of live streams to their users. The server infrastructure required to satisfy this demand is often the highest cost for network operators. The Boston Stream+ is an ultra-dense encoding solution offering significant quality and cost benefits to video delivery customers.

Switch Media Unveils Cost-Effective Fast-to-Market OTT Platform MediaHQ Lite

Switch Media, a world leader in online video technology, is announcing the launch of MediaHQ Lite. This is an end-to-end OTT platform that provides a comprehensive feature set at a cost-effective price point allowing an OTT service to be delivered swiftly. MediaHQ Lite keeps complexity to a minimum while satisfying core OTT requirements, reducing overheads and providing the opportunity to test new ideas with minimal budget.

Premium OTT services have become complex and fragmented. Many broadcasters and content owners struggle with bespoke integrations, finger pointing between vendors, the high costs of app development and progressively increased overhead costs. MediaHQ Lite is aimed at new OTT offerings where time-to-market is critical, and budgets are realistic. The platform provides the ability to extend reach, free up operational resources and adapt to the changing OTT landscape and consumer expectations.

Using MediaHQ Lite, an OTT service can be launched quickly and easily without any kind of customisation. Users simply rebrand according to their own brand guidelines. Features include secure VOD and live streaming with DRM, a global CDN service, analytics reports, comprehensive metadata, high definition ABR encoding and use of the Switch Media applications, or their own apps if they have them. What really sets MediaHQ Lite apart is a full featured server-side ad insertion integration with AdEase providing uncompromised addressable ad experiences.
