Rocstar TV Launches Multi-Tenant TV Everywhere OTT offers for Carriers, Operators and ISPs on the mediaClass multi-screen Platform

November 22nd, 2019

Argentine telecommunications facilities provider Servicios y Telecomunicaciones SA (SYT) has chosen a complete mediaClass OTT TV Everywhere solution as the core of a newly launched Rocstar TV Everywhere platform. The system is designed to allow carriers, cable operators and ISPs to offer own-brand TV Everywhere OTT products
based on a strong channel line-up and premium content. All functions are provided through an operator-class version of mediaClass software, customised and integrated into servers at SYT’s headquarters in Buenos Aires.

“We signed the agreement with SYT at the April 2019 NAB Show and have been very busy adding specific features for Rocstar TV local markets,” says mediaClass EVP Manelli Hosseini. “This new service will allow easy white-labeling for carriers, ISPs and cable operators to offer full TV Everywhere OTT and IPTV with their own brand and their own app. The system includes all the advanced TV Everywhere features – content source processing and storage, digital rights management, subscriber management, viewer analytics and an AI-based recommendation engine. We have also built in true multi-tenancy which is often claimed but not delivered. Each tenant has its own app with its own logo and skin, and can create its own TV packages integrated with their own billing system. The resultant service is very easy to use, includes automatic configuration, and is highly cost efficient.”

“We are very excited to be launching this new service which is designed to offer access to a very wide range of Argentinian television content” adds Ariel Graizer, President of SYT and Rocstar TV. “We have launched the TV Everywhere solution with around 50 live channels including catchup and restart TV, and will be going to over a hundred live channels plus video-on-demand content during the next few months. This will be accessible on viewing platforms such as Android set-top-boxes, Android TVs, Android and iOS mobile apps, and PCs. Operators, carrier and ISP tenants can choose what content to offer, ranging from a basic package, premium content, VOD content and a sports package. Tenants retain the ability to add their own choice of supplementary content and local channels. We have implemented a world-class platform with many tenants already on board ahead of the gradual rollout across Latin America over the coming year.”

mediaClass announces Broadcast-Pro TV-everywhere IPTV/OTT platform

October 31st, 2019

See mediaClAccompanying diagram shows a functional overview of a typical mediaClass Broadcast-Pro implementation for TV-everywhere advanced OTT services.ass on stand 5.B48F at IBC 2019, Amsterdam, September 13th-17th

Talking to prospects over the past year, we have been inundated by requests for an affordable turnkey solution that offers branded mobile apps and web TV for broadcasters. Besides their usual local market, many often want to reach out to a global audience. They have a few channels but also tend to have some VOD content and are looking at other monetisation opportunities through advertising. This differs from our usual customers who are telcom/cable operators or service providers looking for a comprehensive multi-tenant solution with advanced services.

comments mediaClass EVP, Manelli Hosseini

“The challenge is to create a complete product package that keeps costs down and offers advanced functionality in a turnkey solution which fits most requirements. Having our own multi-DRM solution helps massively reduce TCO and implementation costs.”

details mediaClass founder and CEO, Dr Arjang Zadeh

The only potential complexity is the customer’s current encoding and packaging infrastructure. Broadcast-Pro is highly flexible and designed to fit easily into existing systems.

adds mediaClass CTO, Stilian Tcholakov

mediaClass Broadcast-Pro will be on general availability from mid-December 2019.

mediaClass announces DAIClass Dynamic Ad Insertion for Linear Channels in Partnership with Anevia at IBC

17 September 2019

See mediaClass on stand 5.B48F at IBC 2019, Amsterdam, September 13th-17th

mediaClass, a globally active leader in OTT systems development and supply, announces that it is finalising the integration of DAIClass into its end-to-end OTT multiscreen platform. DAIClass is a new capability powering dynamic ad insertion for linear channels. It is powered by Anevia’s DAI-enabled video delivery software. mediaClass is presenting its latest technology on stand 5.B48F at IBC 2019 in Amsterdam.

Until now, mediaClass has offered ad insertion for video-on-demand channels and advertisement-based video-on-demand portals with the integration of advertising engines such as Freewheel. With the new Anevia integration, service providers will be able to monetise their content by targeting ads on live streams to specific regions or even individual users.

mediaClass CTO Stilian Tcholakov comments: “Targeted linear dynamic ad insertion is not as simple as many claim. We have been developing DAIClass for some time based on components from Anevia to support ad preparation, ad enabling, ad stitching and ad routing. Partnering with a single provider offering all these different components pre-integrated greatly simplifies the development of this new feature. The mediaClass and Anevia teams are working closely together. Currently in beta, DAIClass will be officially launched in Q4 2019.”

mediaClass EVP Manelli Hosseini adds: “One of the most features most commonly requested by our existing and prospective customers has been dynamic ad insertion which is clearly an important source of funding for OTT services. I am very excited at the further differentiation this brings to our solutions. Together with our disruptive pricing it means we are offering leading edge technology at much lower total cost than any of our competitors.”
