QBR Honored by Industry Publications

Recently, MediaMelon MediaMelon QBR™ technology received a score of 4.5 out of possible 5 diamonds in the prestigious BTR Diamond Technology Reviews. Judged by cable industry experts, including representatives from Bright House Networks, Buckeye CableSystem, Cable One, Comcast, Cox Communications, Suddenlink Communications and Time Warner Cable, the Diamonds are a measure of outstanding innovation and product leadership.

Here’s what some of the judges had to say:

“MediaMelon’s development of a product that works with all existing encoding/streaming formats while setting up the streaming of 4K and full HD along with facilitating use with existing encoders in real time is a leap forward of significant scope. The percentages seen in bitrate reduction, storage requirements and perceptual quality are striking. The focus in facilitating integration without adding complexity to the existing platform is very enlightened and good for the service/content providers on several levels.”

“As MSOs work to deliver UHD content in the near future, adaptive bitrate encoders gain more and more importance in the network. This product promises significant bandwidth reduction and includes algorithms to maintain or enhance quality. This is definitely needed.”

QBR was also named a finalist for the Fierce Telecom Innovation Award. We’re excited that the industry is taking notice!
