MediaKind Aquila On-Demand addresses OTT challenges
In August, MediaKind launched its latest portfolio offering, Aquila On-Demand, a video on demand solution.
Aquila On-Demand is said to address the challenges of delivering OTT-based high-end, premium-quality user experiences by optimising distribution costs and offering the necessary tools to process and deliver video files over any network to any device.
Supporting the latest technologies such as HEVC, 8K and CMAF, the solution enables the encoding, transformation, processing, packaging and delivery of file-based video content. MediaKind said that Aquila On-Demand offers a fast and optimised content delivery workflow which supports fast provisioning for content, as well as reduced operational complexity and greater flexibility around deployment choices.
Stuart Boorn, VP product management, MediaKind, said: “Today’s challenging world of media delivery requires solutions that are capable of ingesting any type of video feed and format, dynamically storing video when and where appropriate. All this is needed while deployed on a diverse mix of physical and cloud infrastructure to stream live and stored video on demand to an array of device types. Through the launch of Aquila On-Demand, we are providing a fast and optimised content delivery workflow that responds to multiple use cases and applications, supports the latest audio and video capabilities and enables operators to provide richer user experiences to consumers. This single solution addresses the significant growth in usage of on demand content and offers the necessary tools to process and deliver video files over any network to any device.”
