The Challenge

Viewers crave the highest possible video quality, especially for watching sports. In both live and for VOD formats, the Japanese broadcaster needed to deliver UHD HDR to connected TVs, set-top boxes and multi-screen devices.

The goal was to be able to stream in three different UHD profiles at various bitrates for multi-screen devices. The broadcaster also wanted to be up and running for major high-viewership events, fast.
