Online advanced TV and cloud streaming developer Octoshape has partnered with NAGRA, the digital TV division of the Kudelski Group, to enable the secure and efficient delivery of broadcast TV via the Internet by integrating Infinite HD-M into NAGRA MediaLive.
The partnership of both companies will allow service providers to answer consumer demand for premium over-the-top (OTT) content with broadcast reliability and deliver the highest quality linear and on-demand content, whether free-to-air or high value assets, to a broad range of consumer devices without compromising security or video playback quality.
The integrated and end-to-end Octoshape and NAGRA solution brings together NAGRA's content protection and multiscreen television management systems available through NAGRA MediaLive, and Octoshape's Infinite HD-M multicast network which enables the distribution of broadcast signals via native IP multicast without requiring that service providers upgrade their Internet capacity or expand their current on-net capital investments. The combined solution extends to devices such as PC, tablets and smartphones by using NAGRA's secure player, NAGRA Media Player (NMP).
"Adding Octoshape's network into our multiscreen solution will enable an even higher quality end-user experience with a financially compelling offer for service providers by bringing more efficiency into the mix," said Jean-Michel Puiatti, SVP multiscreen product unit of NAGRA. "This option brings a unique quality and economic value proposition through CDN cost optimization to service providers that implement NAGRA MediaLive."
