Octoshape, a provider of cloud-based OTT streaming technology, and AirTies Wireless Networks, a supplier of technology to the broadcast and broadband industry, recently partnered for high quality OTT IPTV (News - Alert) delivery fueled by customer production launches with premium content.
The AirTies-Octoshape solution combines the best of both companies, leveraging AirTies' proven operator class STB architecture and incorporating Octoshape's disruptive video acceleration technologies.
Company officials said that the combined and integrated solution leverages Octoshape's multipath and multisource capabilities that dynamically route traffic around congestion, facilitating TV quality video and guaranteeing uptime to broadband connected devices.
"Integrating Octoshape's InfiniteHD breaks the barriers of geographical reach and TV quality viewing for OTT IPTV where traditional streaming solutions fall short," said Bulent Celebi, founder and chairman at AirTies Wireless Networks, in a statement.
Celebi said that watching an AirTies-Octoshape powered experience is equal or even better than a traditional broadcast equivalent.
“The combined solution enables our customers to increase their consumer footprint by addressing subscribers beyond their network boundaries and reducing time to market," said Celebi.
Michael Koehn Milland, CEO of Octoshape said that the partnership with AirTies is another major step forward in enabling the transition from broadcast TV to broadband TV on connected devices.
“Our combined customers can now enjoy the same TV quality, scale, and economics that traditional broadcast systems have historically guaranteed" said Milland. "Our joint solution represents a major opportunity for our customers to increase revenues by offering services in new markets, at the same time enabling the Internet as a true TV scale medium.”
