A new global OTT managed service launched on time under remote working restrictions validates the strength of Red Bee Media’s relationship with client TV5MONDE, the resilience of its team and the flexibility of the platform’s architecture.
Аdaptive broadcasting is gaining momentum quickly. Live TV is giving way to new services that not only adapt to the broadcasting bandwidth but also receive user feedback as well as generate and display targeted advertising. However, what spurred the broadcasting revolution was streaming, a technology that selects the best available quality. It is unnecessary to have a DVB-T2 antenna, a cable run to your household, or a satellite dish on your balcony to receive such broadcasts: all you need is your favorite gadget, such as a smartphone, a tablet, a laptop, or an in-car multimedia system. These broadcasts have a low buffering capacity for guaranteed delivery of the content and can even tolerate having the user temporarily exit the coverage area.

IABM BaM Awards Finalist Edgeware, the pioneer of TV CDN technology, has introduced Ad Enabler – a brand new product that segments the content stream in an extremely accurate manner to make sure the ad comes on exactly when it is supposed to. Ad Enabler provides frame-accurate segmentation that prevents fractions of old ads being shown or parts of content to be lost, both causing glitches to the end-viewer. Edgeware’s Ad Enabler is one of the first to support live OTT ad insertion on the MPEG-DASH standard, which is the native format for Android devices.
