TV Broadcasters are frequently deploying their own branded Multiscreen OTT TV services in order to reach consumers directly and to extend their content distribution to multiple screens.
The distribution model for such broadcaster services globally has been primarily as a companion to the Pay TV subscriber service, which is delivered over broadband networks.
Customers consume such services online via Apps on their Smartphones, Tablets, Smart TVs as well as on PCs.
MediaMelon solutions enable Broadcasters to deliver a better quality of experience.
MediaMelon QBR can reduce Live TV and VoD bandwidth use by 35% without changing encoders or re-encoding content libraries. while the visual quality of the video will be better than simple adaptive bit-rate streaming. Thanks to built-in analytics, these savings can be easily quantified to show the value of the streaming service. With theQBR use ofstate-of-the-art content-aware optimization, the visual quality of the video will typically be always better than it was with un-optimized adaptive bitrate streaming.
Improve Streaming Video Quality
MediaMelon QBR when deployed within a streaming network, allows consumers to enjoy better video quality with their existing broadband connections. QBR reduces visible artifacts and quality fluctuations even with varying content types and bandwidth conditions. A portion of the saved bandwidth can also be re-allocated to the most complex scenes, getting rid of artifacts in the most dramatic moments. Streaming services compete on quality, and by using QBR a Broadcaster can measurably increase the quality of service to the end user.
