Dynamic, seamless and consistent video quality ad replacement for efficient linear multiscreen OTT IPTV.
September 10th 2014, International Broadcasters Convention:Octoshape, an industry leader in cloud-based, over-the-top (OTT) stream acceleration and contribution technologies for broadcasters, enterprises and carriers, and veteran innovator of the mobile and multimedia monetization industry Yospace announced today a partnership to provide TV quality seamless per-user ad insertion solutions which will drive premium monetization opportunities for broadcasters.
Utilizing the Octoshape patented stream acceleration technologies, the quality of in-stream OTT video ad-insertion experiences are dramatically increased. Historically, when dynamically inserting advertising into a linear broadcast stream from random providers, the video quality of the ad does not match the video quality of the stream, either due to encoding, or the throughput challenges of non-accelerated or HTTP delivery technologies. Integrating with industry leading ad decision engines, Yospace dynamically pre-processes the original ad content to match the encoding profiles and quality of the original broadcast stream. The combined solution then results in sustained TV quality experiences, that seamlessly transitions from broadcast content to seamless per-user advertising without a shift in quality.
“Quality video experiences are a cornerstone to successful content distribution and monetization across the Internet” said Michael Koehn Milland, CEO of Octoshape. “We are excited to work with Yospace as their product value proposition is in direct alignment with ours: developing cutting edge technology to help our customers build successful content distribution businesses over the Internet."
Tim Sewell, CEO of Yospace, said: “Monetizing content is about consumer engagement, and video quality has a direct correlation to revenue for our customers. The combined Octoshape and Yospace solution drives that consumer engagement to a new level”
The combined solution is currently being deployed with leading direct entertainment satellite broadcasters and will be ready for large scale deployment with other OTT IPTV broadcasters customers in late 2014.
