Turner streaming media gets the edge with Octoshape
Turner Broadcasting Systems integrated Octoshape Infinite Edge technology into its live streaming offerings for both the 2008 elections and live sports coverage. Octoshape provided TBS with an enhanced user experience by enabling high-quality video with faster streaming start times.
The streams are available in multiple quality levels and automatically adapt to the network conditions at the edge, achieving the best possible experience for each individual viewer. This season, Turner Sports is using Octoshape to deliver high-quality streams directly on the users' desktop.
Along with benefits for the user, the Octoshape solution adds usage statistics detail, showing when and how the content is being consumed.
