The target was to launch in time for world championship events in 2019 and start preparing for the 2020 Games in Tokyo. A simple approach was needed to streamline their video processing and delivery.
Using the VOS®360 Live Streaming Platform, the broadcaster delivers three UHD profiles in various bit-rates, including 4K. In less than six months customers watched their first hybrid UHD HRD streams on connected devices.
The broadcaster needed ultimate flexibility. Our agnostic solution seamlessly integrated to operate within existing systems. This lowers the technical complexity without creating or managing additional infrastructures. It allowed the broadcaster to unify the live and VOD processing chain to maintain the same video quality cross-channel.
Another crucial step was to ensure robust scalability, especially for live sporting events. The elasticity that the VOS360 platform provides gave the broadcaster the confidence to launch new UHD HDR channels for all devices, worldwide and in time for world championship events.
