GRENOBLE, France--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Keepixo, a leading provider of software-based head-end solutions for IPTV and OTT, today unveiled a partnership with Comigo to provide an integrated OTT solution that consists of Comigo’s TV platform and Keepixo’s Genova software suite for IPTV/OTT head-ends.
The combined solution represents an end-to-end platform with all the components needed to rapidly deploy an OTT service. It includes Keepixo’s OTT head-end with multi-rate video transcoders as well as Comigo’s TV platform and STBs on the client side.
Keepixo Genova Software suite is a cloud-ready, high-performance, and broadcast-quality software suite targeted at content and service providers. It includes all the components needed to build a multiscreen video workflow for OTT and IPTV services. Genova comprises a high-density, multi-rate H.264 and HEVC live encoder, file transcoder for VOD assets, and a multi-format OTT packager.
The Comigo OTT/IPTV Platform enables service providers to quickly deliver a wealth of contextual services such as data enrichment; personalization; and advanced social and viewer engagement capabilities on every screen, including TV sets, smartphones, and tablets. Based on cloud technology and an open SDK, the platform provides pay-TV providers with a flexible and customizable solution, enabling them to quickly introduce content-related applications and services, encourage viewer engagement, and open up new revenue streams
“By working with Comigo, we are able to combine our high quality video transcoding solutions and Comigo’s advanced TV platform” said Jerome Blanc, COO for Keepixo. “We are proud of this collaboration which brings OTT service providers an end-to-end, easy to deploy OTT platform with an exciting and feature-rich user experience.”
“One of the key challenges that IPTV and OTT service providers face today is launching full multiscreen services with advanced capabilities ahead of the competition,” said Motty Lentzitzky, CEO at Comigo. “By partnering with Keepixo, we are reducing integration complexity and bringing to market an HEVC and MPEG-DASH supported solution, therefore allowing service providers to dramatically speed time-to-market and save significant bandwith costs.”
