Arqiva and MainStreaming partner to challenge conventional approaches to streaming content distribution

Arqiva and MainStreaming have forged a technology and services partnership, to jointly offer distribution services for the media streaming market.

The partners will explore how the combination of MainStreaming’s cutting-edge CDN technology and broadcast-grade streaming experience with Arqiva’s global media infrastructure and managed services capability can offer more scalable, flexible, and programming-centric content distribution services for the media streaming market.

With ever-growing viewer numbers on streaming services and the increasing strategic value of online audiences, the streaming needs of the biggest broadcasters and service providers are greater than ever. The combination of a large audience served, consistently high video quality, and low latency is the tough combination to get right hour after hour. As such, secure, scalable and cost-effective content distribution networks are vital.

Existing streaming distribution networks are not well suited to deliver either the quality of service required by service providers or the quality of experience expected by audiences. The growing carbon footprint of streaming services is also a concern for both providers and audiences. Arqiva and MainStreaming are coming together to address these issues and to challenge conventional approaches to content distribution.

Antonio G. Corrado, CEO, MainStreaming, said: “Mainstreaming’s technology makes true edge computing for the media industry a reality, and already delivers important benefits for our industry-leading customers.  We are excited to work together with Arqiva and the media industry to take advantage of our real-time, ultra-low latency, highly scalable streaming capabilities to deliver broadcast-grade streaming and also create new and exciting edge applications for video delivery.”
