MediaClass has launched Broadcast-Pro, a new version of its end-to-end IPTV/OTT multiscreen platform.
Broadcast-Pro is designed for broadcasters and content owners who are looking to launch an independent TV-everywhere service for their customers.
"Talking to prospects over the past year, we have been inundated by requests for an affordable turnkey solution that offers branded mobile apps and web TV for broadcasters," said Manelli Hosseini, EVP, MediaClass.
"Besides their usual local market, many often want to reach out to a global audience. They have a few channels but also tend to have some VOD content and are looking at other monetisation opportunities through advertising. This differs from our usual customers who are telcom/cable operators or service providers looking for a comprehensive multi-tenant solution with advanced services."
"The challenge is to create a complete product package that keeps costs down and offers advanced functionality in a turnkey solution which fits most requirements," details mediaClass founder and CEO Dr Arjang Zadeh. "Having our own multi-DRM solution helps massively reduce TCO and implementation costs."
"The only potential complexity is the customer's current encoding and packaging infrastructure," adds mediaClass CTO, Stilian Tcholakov. "Broadcast-Pro is highly flexible and designed to fit easily into existing systems."
MediaClass Broadcast-Pro will be on general availability from mid-December 2019.
