Dutch video systems integrator Divitel has designed a streaming head-end featuring Keepixo encoders for Media Broadcast, the operator of German DVB-T2 platform Freenet TV.
The solution enables Media Broadcast to offer viewers advanced adaptive MPEG-DASH streaming capabilities as part of its hybrid service Freenet TV Connect. The OTT channels are seamlessly integrated into the Freenet TV channel list.
The use of encoders-packagers from Keepixo, a French provider of software-based and cloud-ready head-end solutions for IPTV and OTT, ensures the maximum possible video quality for any given end-user bandwidth while offering the scalability required from today’s video delivery solutions, according to Divitel.
The platform initially contains 18 IP-channels, but has the elasticity needed to add additional channels without system-wide resets.
“Divitel’s expertise on video delivery solutions and Keepixo’s products allow us to provide viewers with additional channels enabling more exciting content and relevant usage scenarios,” said Sven Eckoldt, Senior Product Manager at Media Broadcast. “We feel that Freenet TV marks a new era for terrestrial television, combining the strengths of both broadcast and IP-based services.”
