Telestream to Demo Intelligent Media Processing, Delivery & Analytics at 2018 IBC

AMSTERDAM--Telestream will showcase the latest strategic advances and developments related to its broad product portfolio—spanning live streaming, video encoding/transcoding, video monitoring and analytics—at the 2018 IBC Show at the RAI in Amsterdam, Sept. 14-18, 2018. As a provider of file-based media workflow orchestration, media streaming and delivery technologies, Telestream’s latest technologies are applicable to on-premise and virtualized environments.

Following its 2017 acquisition of IneoQuest—and its systems that analyze and report whether content was prepared and delivered correctly over managed and unmanaged networks—Telestream is now ready to show how this technology benefits customers when integrated within its overall solution.

At the show, Telestream plans to introduce two customers—German cable network operator, Unitymedia, and US-based broadcaster, Fox Sports—that will serve as real-world examples of how this technology can increase efficiency, reduce operational and infrastructure costs, and optimize the customers’ quality of experience (QoE).

By adopting Telestream’s latest, intelligent media processing and file-based quality control, Unitymedia will be able to leverage this advanced video monitoring and analytics platforms throughout its network, which will help position its offerings as premium quality, and ensure that its technology investment is supporting its business development activities.

Telestream will also profile how the Fox Sports Operations & Engineering team has been using a solution integrating Telestream Vantage and Lightspeed Live with IBM’s Aspera FASPStream to produce Fox Sports' coverage of the 2018 FIFA World Cup from its Los Angeles facility. The combined solution enables high-quality streaming over standard IP networks to remote production teams for near real-time editing and production.
