Broadpeak leveraging Google Cloud to simplify & speed up DVR services
To simplify the deployment of advanced streaming services for network operators, Broadpeak is now offering a modernised video delivery solution supported by Google Cloud.
At the heart of the solution is Broadpeak’s BkS350 Origin Packager software running on Google Cloud, enabling operators to modernise their workflows, overcome capacity and storage limitations of on-premises infrastructure, and quickly expand their live, time-shifted, and video-on-streaming (VoD) streaming offerings.
Kip Schauer, Global Head of Media & Entertainment for Google Cloud, said, “Integrating Broadpeak’s origin packager software on Google Cloud will enable operators to tap into the resources they need to modernise video architecture and speed up their time-to-market for new streaming services.”
Leveraging Google Cloud, Broadpeak’s modernised video delivery solution provides operators with increased storage capacity while simplifying the deployment of cloud Digital Video Recorder (DVR) services.
Broadpeak’s BkS350 solution packages and encrypts live and VoD streaming content in popular Adaptive Bit-Rate (ABR) formats, including HLS and MPEG-DASH, and records them for non-linear use cases such as time-shifting, start over, catch-up, and cloud DVR. And utilising Google Cloud’s object-based management capabilities, operators can improve data analytics, scalability, data retrieval, cost savings, and resource optimisation when storing VoD and time-shifted TV content.
Jacques Le Mancq, CEO of Broadpeak, added, “With Broadpeak’s continuous delivery approach to making software enhancements and leveraging the strength of the Google Cloud infrastructure, our customers now have a flexible and scalable solution for video streaming on any device.”
