PurpleStream Convergence has recently announced its partnership with cloud-based technology provider Octoshape, which seeks to provide IPTV services worldwide. The latest broadband IPTV service from PurpleStream, also known as PurpleCloud, will integrate Octoshape’s Infinite HD‐M Federated Multicast Broadband TV platform. This technology will provide broadcasters in India and the rest of Asia the ability to offer IPTV services to customers in North America, Europe and Australia.
PurpleStream’s core technology incorporates Adaptive Bit Rate Optimization with Single Source Multiple Device (SSMD) Delivery, which allows optimized video viewing experience with zero buffering. It is also offered as a managed service for broadcasters and Over the Top (OTT) operators, PurpleCloud maximizes Octoshape’s Infinite HD-M to deliver stable and dependable HD quality video streams to any device from basically anywhere at a fraction of the cost of current delivery systems.
Karthik Subramanian, CEO of PurpleStream commented on the cost-saving potential of the technology. “It is prohibitively expensive for all except the largest of TV Broadcasters to deliver live content via the Internet to audiences in other countries. Traditionally this has been accomplished through satellites. The multicasting, multi path capabilities of the Octoshape CDN are an ideal fit for PurpleCloud. We are pleased to be the reseller of Octoshape in India, where we have a number of customers eagerly awaiting the solution.”
Meanwhile, Michael Koehn Milland, CEO of Octoshape lauded the capabilities of Purplestream “We have been impressed by PurpleStream’s technical capabilities and marketing prowess on the Indian subcontinent. We are also keen on collaborating and developing the Live Events broadcast market segment with PurpleStream. Octoshape has successfully supported some of the largest live events on the Internet. The combination of Infinite HD-M platform with PurpleStream’s Single Source Multiple Device (SSMD) capability is a game changer in the market for Live Events Broadcasts.”
