London-based Simplestream will demo its latest products Media Manager, Platform Services and Media Hub, along with its Media Manager workflow, on the stand of Garland Partners and Media Excel at this year’s TV Connect.
Media Manager is a multi-channel, multi-territory solution developed to reduce the complexity and cost of delivering the full range of live streaming, TV Everywhere, catch-up and live-2-VOD solutions. It has a firmware integration with Media Excels encoders as part of the architecture to ensure scalable and high-quality live streaming and live-2-VOD/VOD-2-live across every platform and audience size.
Platform Services offers broadcasters the ability to cost-effectively deliver catch-up services to Youview, Freeview Play, Freesat, Virgin, EETV in addition to mobiles, tablets and Smart TV’s already supported.
Media Hub allows telcos and broadcasters to deploy the next generation of online TV services across multiple platforms and territories, including live/automated catch-up and pack management. Simplestream will be showcasing it through a demonstration of TVPlayer, the low cost OTT subscription service.
Dan Finch, commercial director of Simplestream, said, “Our mission is to ensure that every content provider can extend the reach of their content across every platform and device in the most cost-effective and competitive way possible. Because we have developed such a comprehensive architecture through Media Manager, we can focus our efforts on providing the best UX that meets each businesses needs while ensuring an industry-leading launch-to-market time at an extremely competitive price. Media Excel helps us to achieve this flexibility and scalability for our customers by ensuring the delivery of their content is the highest quality, no matter what the size of the channel, or audience. The uptake of our Media Manager solution for niche and industry-leading networks has been significant, and we expect this to continue as the demand for OTT and TV Everywhere services continues to rise.”
