introduced an enhanced IP video delivery solution that now supports on-demand programming and back-office connectivity, in addition to linear TV. The solution was demonstrated in BigBand's booth at the Cable Show. Featuring BigBand's vIP PASS integrated with Clearleap
's Stream On Demand system, the new solution is designed to allow operators to stream entire libraries of managed linear and on-demand video content to IP-connected TV sets or other devices.
The joint solution takes the bandwidth load off the CMTS for delivering VOD programming or linear TV to IP-connected devices, while also handling back-office operations such as validation, billing, transactions and management of the content catalog. In the process, operators can offer multi-screen services to gaming consoles, iPads, Blue-Ray, mobile devices and PCs.
The new IP video delivery solution is available now.
