Key Products and Technology Demos

New at IBC2011 -- BkS300 At IBC2011 Broadpeak will unveil the BkS300, the company's latest series of multiformat streaming servers. Ideal for multiplatform content delivery, this robust and scalable on-demand video server delivers video on managed or open-Internet networks to multiple devices. It provides a unified solution for video streaming in most popular formats like Microsoft(R) Silverlight(R) smooth streaming for live and VOD content with Digital Rights Management (DRM), and Apple(R) HTTP live streaming for both live and on-demand applications with scrambled or in-the-clear content.

Dedicated to adaptive streaming, the BkS300 features an optimized architecture for enhanced performance to deliver services with the best quality of experience. The BkS300 is fully integrated into the BkM100 CDN Mediator and provides fail-over and load balancing management options. Additionally, the BkS300 features an integrated tool from Broadpeak's partner, Skytide, which provides operators with helpful CDN analytics and reporting information.

"Follow Me" TV Demonstration of BkM100 Unified Content Delivery Management System Ever aware of the growing consumer demand for multiplatform content, Broadpeak will demonstrate how its BkM100 content delivery management system enables the delivery of content to multiple devices -- smoothly and simply. Visitors to Broadpeak's IBC2011 booth will be able to view a cross-terminal, cross-OS demonstration of "follow me" TV. Utilizing Broadpeak's unified CDN technology, the demonstration will show how on-demand content can be delivered efficiently to multiple devices, while also allowing for switching between multiple devices, to carry on watching the same content.

The demonstration will involve content delivery to multiple screens: a personal computer with Microsoft(R) Silverlight(R) streaming, an iPad(R) with HTTP live streaming, an iPhone(R) with iOS, a set-top box with TS streaming, and an Android(TM)-based Galaxy phone with RTSP streaming. The viewer can start watching content on any of these devices, stop, and start the same content from the same point on a different device by pressing just a single button. By sharing streaming information through a CDN component called "cross-terminal module," the Broadpeak approach enables seamless delivery of content on all devices irrespective of the devices' operating systems.
