Arqiva and MainStreaming have created a new partnership that will combine MainStreaming’s CDN technology with Arqiva’s global media infrastructure and managed services.
The partnership is looking to take advantage of increasing viewer numbers on streaming services and the streaming needs of some of the biggest broadcasters.
“Mainstreaming’s technology makes true edge computing for the media industry a reality, and already delivers important benefits for our industry-leading customers,” said Antonio Corrado, CEO, MainStreaming. “We are excited to work together with Arqiva and the media industry to take advantage of our real-time, ultra-low latency, highly scalable streaming capabilities to deliver broadcast-grade streaming and also create new and exciting edge applications for video delivery.”
Clive White, CTO, Arqiva, added: “The streaming world is changing fast and navigating the commercial and technical issues has never been harder. Arqiva and MainStreaming will be collaborating on a range of new capabilities and service offerings to meet these challenges with a view to optimising the customer experience and adding value to the biggest broadcasters in our core markets.”
Arqiva and MainStreaming also hope to improve carbon emissions and plan to “challenge conventional approaches” to content distribution.
