Octoshape delivers Turkish Football League for Digiturk
Streaming media provider Octoshape has been chosen by Digiturk, Turkey’s premier Satellite TV provider, for Internet video streaming services for the Turkish Football League and various other Digiturk online content offerings.
With Turkey having such a high national interest in football, Digiturk takes special care to provide high quality and uninterrupted viewing experiences to viewers whenever and wherever they want to watch matches. With Octoshape, Turkish consumers will be able to enjoy a significantly improved user experience without buffering for high-quality video and advanced features like Digital Video Recording (DVR), preventing viewers from missing a moment.
Digiturk has elected to use Octoshape’s Infinite HD-M federated multicast broadband TV platform for linear over-the-top (OTT) video distribution. This technology enables the quality, scale and economics of traditional broadcast technologies over the Internet. Telco and cable operators that are part of the Infinite HD-M federated network are able to receive signals via native IP Multicast in a way that allows them to easily manage large volumes of traffic without needing to upgrade their Internet capacity.
“We tested many technologies and service offerings to find the best quality experience for our audience,” said Hatice Memiguven, chief officer of technology and operations, Digiturk. “Octoshape offered the best overall consumer viewing experience, including a pathway to enhanced functionality and the ability to scale our broadband audience in a sustainable fashion.”
“We are honored to partner with Digiturk to further improve the overall content viewing experience of a brand as strong as Digiturk,” said Michael Koehn Milland, CEO of Octoshape. “Infinite HD-M continues to underscore the benefits for large media broadcasters. Our unique combination of quality, scale and economics enable Digiturk to facilitate both the consumer experience and successful business models they require.”
Octoshape’s Infinite HD-M federated linear broadband TV ecosystem will continue to expand globally throughout 2012 in carefully planned phases adding content contribution partners, Tier 1 broadband providers, connected television manufacturers and conditional access providers.
