EMERYVILLE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MobiTV, a global leader in live and on-demand video delivery solutions, releases its white paper: “Is it time to outsource your TV service?” revealing mounting pressures on Pay TV providers to evolve their TV delivery service from legacy multicast IP/QAM to unicast IP and completely revamp their approach for delivering in-home viewing experiences to customers.
“There’s a pressing decision to make: The in-home TV experience is changing rapidly, creating challenges for providers as they navigate the new reality of delivering pay TV services in today’s market,” said Kerry Travilla, VP of Technology at MobiTV. “Fortunately, the need for change also creates lucrative opportunities. With new IP unicast systems in place, providers are able to reach customers that were once unserviceable due to low bandwidth networks and provide new value added services like catch-up TV, network DVR, social integration and recommendations. Now, there are options for cable companies to choose a managed service for their TV service by using a shared infrastructure to meet consumer demands. Our white paper is meant to ease fears, especially for small to medium OpCos that are seeking viable ways to future proof their video delivery, without cutting ties with their customers.”
The maturation of the retail set-top box industry creates an opportunity for OpCos to transition to IP unicast delivery for TV services, allowing them to better compete and deliver in today’s market. Consumer demands are driving TV providers toward pure IP delivery, and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is currently leaning toward the force of a TV delivery service to retail STB.
MobiTV’s White Paper informs readers about the need for Pay TV providers to consider a TV SaaS partner that can deliver a full IP based media and advanced features without sacrificing operational performance and high capital spending.
Key Highlights from the White Paper:
- How Pay TV operators can compete, monetize their own network investments, and protect subscribers.
- How Pay TV providers can transition from legacy IP multicast to IP unicast through TV SaaS for a more profitable and scalable business model.
- How OpCos can pick the right TV SaaS, which includes Digital Rights Management (DRM) support, video quality and multi-tenant support.
- Details of TV SaaS integration and what it takes to meet the demands of today’s consumers.
