NAUKA TELECOM SELECTS RGB NETWORKS’ VIDEO PROCESSING TECHNOLOGY
Russian Service Provider Turns to RGB for Comprehensive Multiscreen IP Video Solution
January 27, 2014 – RGB Networks, leading provider of the industry’s most scalable, unified solutions for multiscreen video delivery, today announced that Nauka Telecom, one of the largest telecommunications carriers in Russia, is deploying RGB’s Video Multiprocessing Gateway (VMG) and TransAct Packager to deliver its over-the-top (OTT) video services. The Russian carrier selected RGB for its award-winning transcoding and packaging solution.
Streaming video over IP to an ever expanding universe of screens can present significant challenges as each piece of video content must be packaged according to the protocol set by the mobile device in use. Accommodating viewers using popular Apple HLS and Adobe HDS devices, Nauka Telecom plans to roll out 108 broadcast channels, each equipped with four profiles. To overcome the complex processing demands behind the delivery of its OTT services, and without impacting heavily on network bandwidth or content quality, Nauka Telecom required a solution of the highest standard.
“The boom in content being consumed on video-enabled devices, both large and small, shows no sign of slowing. To ensure we keep out in front of the competition, and continue to deliver premium entertainment content to our OTT subscribers, we needed to source the most scalable multi-stream IP processing solution available,” said Pavel Cherepnin, head of development at Nauka Telecom. “By performing a host of versatile tasks simultaneously via an integrated platform, RGB’s combined offering provided us with the most comprehensive means of satisfying our needs.”
With its high performance transcoding capabilities, the carrier-class VMG works in tandem with the critical adaptive streaming functionalities of the TransAct Packager to seamlessly deliver content to any IP-enabled device. With their industry-leading stream processing capacity, advanced video processing functions and exceptional reliability, these two solutions work together to quell operator concerns around supporting growth in channels, resolutions, profiles or device types.
“To keep pace with multiscreen’s rapid evolution, operators need a solution like the paired VMG and TransAct Packager to enable them to convert video to the processing standard they need as and when they need it,” said Scott Pranger, VP Sales EMEA and Global Channels for RGB Networks. “We are very pleased to have worked with and helped Nauka Telecom expand its TV Everywhere services in the region.”
