Mexican pay TV operator Megacable has boosted its Xview+ streaming service with tech from Broadpeak.
The operator has employed Broadpeak’s CDN and nanoCDN multicast ABR tech to deliver live, VOD, time-shift TV, catch-up TV, and premium TV offerings on any device.
The Xview+ platform has transitioned from a hybrid IPTV service to a fully OTT system. Broadpeak’s nanoCDN multicast ABR solution relies on a software agent installed inside both STBs and optical network terminals that reduces delivery costs and removes unicast traffic peaks in the network.
Chief marketing officer at Megacable, Gerardo Seifert said: “Our Xview+ service is growing, and to guarantee an exceptional streaming experience for viewers, we needed a robust, high-performance CDN solution. With multicast ABR, we no longer have to worry about unpredictable peaks in traffic impacting streaming quality, and we’ve successfully unified video delivery to any screen. Broadpeak’s expertise in pioneering multicast ABR technology proved to be invaluable during this project, helping streamline our multiscreen video delivery as we continue to add more subscribers.”
CEO at Broadpeak, Jacques Le Mancq said: “We are proud to partner with a major operator moving from a legacy offering to providing an easy-to-use and high-quality TV service for Mexican families at home and on the go on mobile devices with the Xview+ app. Our nanoCDN multicast ABR solution solves two critical issues – scalability and quality of experience – with a future path to CMAF and low-latency streaming for Megacable.”
