Globecast partners with Viaccess-Orca and MainStreaming for new end-to-end OTT Platform and App development

Globecast Partnership
As a key part of its ongoing commitment to provide business

expertise and technical services that help customers with their ongoing
digital transformation, Globecast, the global solutions provider for media, has announced that it has partnered with Viaccess-Orca (VO) and MainStreaming to provide a new end-to-end OTT platform, app and associated backend infrastructure.

Alessandro Alquati, MD of Globecast Italy, who has been leading the
creation of the partnership, said, “Globecast is dedicated to continuing
to enhance its OTT solutions portfolio to satisfy demand coming from
the OTT market for both live and VOD services as complementary to
traditional distribution. It’s imperative that when working with our
customers we can show the most complete, latest working solutions to
them. To do so we have partnered with MainStreaming and Viaccess-Orca
who are already experts in providing solutions built specifically for
live and VOD streaming.”

Having created an initial demonstration version of the app for live
content, Globecast handles the encoding of the feeds as per a customer’s
requirements. The feed(s) is then delivered to the MainStreaming
backend via an RTMP or MPEG-DASH stream. MainStreaming’s backend
transcodes the stream(s), and then they are fully managed by
Viaccess-Orca’s TV Platform as a Service (TVaaS) which includes on top
of the app, the content protection with its multi-DRM solution and the
secure player.

For VOD content, it’s a similar workflow with the uploading of the
VOD content handled by Globecast via an easy-to-use web portal supplied
by MainStreaming. After receiving the on-demand files, MainStreaming
encodes them into the specific resolutions and bitrates and then feeds
VO’s as a service TV platform. Content delivery to end users is handled
by MainStreaming’s iMDP Service.

The app is fully customisable and is pre-integrated into
Viaccess-Orca’s TV platform, as an optimized end-to-end solution for iOS
and Android mobiles and tablets, and PCs. Channel logos, a visual
trailer of each VOD stream, a program guide for each live channel,
restart options and the insertion of customised advertising are all
supported on the app.

Antonio Corrado, Founder and CEO at MainStreaming.  said: “I believe
this app allows media companies to accelerate their streaming
transformation. We are proud to facilitate this change with our iMDP
Service, the first video delivery platform designed for video streaming
with sustainability in mind. It strengthens the quality of their video
content distribution, ensuring their audience a flawless experience”.

We are excited to embark on this new partnership with Globecast and
MainStreaming,” said Philippe Leonetti, CEO at Viaccess-Orca, said,
“Pairing our cloud-based TVaaS with next-gen technologies from Globecast
and MainStreaming, we are simplifying the delivery of OTT services,
ensuring a superior TV experience on connected devices and allowing
operators to quickly monetize their offerings.”

Alquati said, “Globecast is the primary point of contact, providing a
clear and simple way for customers to reach out. This allows them to
focus on their core business while we handle the end-to-end technical
aspects. We are helping to open up new business opportunities in a
rapidly evolving market, allowing greater content reach and therefore
increased revenues.”
