ORS taps Broadpeak to upgrade OTT video services

Austrian broadcaster ORS has tapped video streaming technology provider Broadpeak’s comprehensive solution to simplify the management of its OTT video services.

Broadpeak’s BkS350 Origin Packager reduces the need for encoding and storage resources, and provides a high throughput capacity that the company expects will generate important savings for ORS.

The solution includes Broadpeak’s BkM100 Video Delivery Mediator, BkA200 Video Delivery Monitoring, BkYou Video Personalization Solution, and BkT100 file transcoder for video streaming.

ORS can also use Broadpeak’s solutions to support advanced features such as time-shift TV, low-latency live sports streaming, video thumbnails, and personalized ad insertion.

“ORS provides television to 3.8 million households in Austria, and our primary goal is to ensure outstanding service continuity. Broadpeak enables us to deliver the highest quality of experience to millions of concurrent viewers during live events,” said Norbert Grill, CTO at ORS. “They helped us achieve this last year during one of the biggest live events across the world – the major football tournament in Qatar. It worked so well that even our operations team was able to enjoy the action from Qatar. Having Broadpeak fully manage and maintain our video platform reduces our risk of service failure, saves us a significant amount of time, and future-proofs our business.

“Our managed services are the perfect option for broadcasters like ORS that don’t want to worry about daily operations, upgrades, monitoring, or troubleshooting,” added Jacques Le Mancq, CEO at Broadpeak. “By fully managing ORS’ platform, with a set of high-performance tools, enhanced cybersecurity, and a team of skilled engineers, we’re enabling amazing-quality streaming experiences.”
