AMSTERDAM--()--IBC 2012 - Octoshape and RTV Slovenija announced today that they have expanded their relationship whereby Octoshape will provide mobile streaming for both Android and iOS devices for all of its video and radio channels in Slovenia, in addition to the broadband TV distribution services it has already enabled for many years.
“Our goals are directly aligned with RTV Slovenija with regard to end user experiences”
“As Slovenia's national public broadcasting organization, based in the country's capital, Ljubljana, RTV Slovenija is striving to provide new content and broaden accessibility options,” said Luka Zebec, Head of RTV Slovenija Multimedia Centre (MMC). “Delivering national and international content requires technological agility, scalability, and above all high quality merits.”
This partnership opens yet another market for Octoshape and allows RTV Slovenija the opportunity to offer an even more compelling user experience across an expanded range of smart devices.
“Our goals are directly aligned with RTV Slovenija with regard to end user experiences,” said Michael Koehn Milland, CEO of Octoshape. “Our Infinite HD-M platform provides the highest quality video experiences in the market, and we are pleased to enable RTV Slovenija to extend that experience to their multi-screen consumers.”
Infinite HD-M enables the quality, scale and economics of traditional broadcast TV over the Internet. Telco and cable operators that are part of the Infinite HD-M Federated network receive the signals via native IP Multicast in a way that allows them to easily manage large volumes of traffic without upgrading their Internet capacity.
Octoshape’s federated linear broadband TV ecosystem will continue to expand globally throughout 2012 in carefully planned phases adding content contribution partners, Tier 1 broadband providers, connected television manufacturers and conditional access providers.
Streaming media innovator Octoshape provides the enabling technology required to bring TV Quality, TV Scale and TV Economics to the public Internet. The company is writing the next chapter of content delivery for broadband IP TV services. The Octoshape approach is more scalable, flexible and affordable than traditional content delivery (CDN) schemes, while providing feature-rich, high-quality viewing to the largest of audiences.
