Tencent Cloud, the cloud business of global tech company Tencent, has been recognised as a Representative Vendor in the newly published 2023 Gartner Market Guide for Video Platform Services.
According to the Market Guide, “Gartner sizes the market at about 25 vendors that provide services of the video-on-demand (VoD), over-the-top (OTT) workflow as outlined in this guide.” The chosen vendors are deemed to represent the VPS market and “were selected based on their product portfolios, market coverage and competitiveness as seen by the competitors, and progress in the past year”.
Tencent Cloud added that its solution range, including Media Processing Service (MPS), VoD and Cloud Streaming Services (CSS), have been pivotal in the company’s placement as a Representative Vendor for the Chinese market in the report.
The company also cited one of its most notable recent use cases that involved working with BeLive Technology, a video software software-as-a-service (SaaS) company and a leading provider of live streaming solutions in South-east Asia.
BeLive aims to become a leading SaaS enterprise that provides one-stop solutions to customers, an area greatly helped by its collaboration with Tencent Cloud. The new partnership opens up opportunities for BeLive to tap into Tencent Cloud’s wide range of media solution offerings, which highlight its real-time audio/video call capabilities, with multi-host and multi-guest to support interactive audio/video streaming and real-time microphone connection.
Tencent Cloud is also working with MIXCHANNEL to create a live video community in Japan. Attracting more than 17 million cumulative users and five million monthly visitors, MIXCHANNEL strives to provide users with new, exciting features that will make their interactions with the app more engaging, prompting them to leverage Tencent Cloud’s reliable, low-latency audio and video services to create more enjoyable experiences in the app, while reducing the maintenance and development costs in the process.
Today, Tencent Cloud provides MIXCHANNEL with secure, reliable and high-speed communication solutions including Tencent Real-Time Communication (TRTC) that features an end-to-end latency of less than 300ms and outstanding anti-network jitter and anti-packet loss performance, as well as the ability to connect to Tencent Cloud’s CSS and VoD services.
