The tests of Cloudncoder were run in partnership with a ‘leading’ Scandinavian cable operator.
“4K is still new to commercial deployments and there is a lack of tested solutions. At such an instance, Cloudncoder fills the need for quick deployments during this time” says Ajey Anand, CEO of Norigin Media. He adds “We have seen all our customers upgrade linear channels to Full HD in the cloud and this is a natural step rather than investing in costly new encoding platforms ahead of a business case”
Broadcasters and pay-TV operators with 4K channels can use Cloudncoder to capture, transcode and package linear feeds or live events.
The platform is already used by tier 1 operators across Northern Europe including Deutsche Telekom.
