Qvest Media Teams With Strive For Live Streaming

​Qvest Media, a systems architect and ICT integrator, has a new pact with Strive, a manufacturer of streaming software which will see Strive’s technology integrated into online platforms and native applications such as web apps, apps for iOS and Android, STBs or smart TVs.

Qvest Media says that when activated, Strive’s software creates a WebRTC-based network between the app subscribers. The resulting user network then provides the video content that would traditionally be distributed by a CDN. Therefore, streaming servers and CDNs can serve up to 8 times more concurrent users than before, it claims. Within the partnership, Qvest Media performs the implementation of the technology in distribution infrastructures and takes care of the global operational support.

“Strive’s technology is a real game-changer for streaming platforms”, said Thomas Müller, CTO at Qvest Media. “OTT-providers and broadcasters have to deal with delivering a steadily rising mass of online video content through various distribution channels. Strive’s solutions improves both data quality and data availability while cutting operational costs at the same time. We are happy about the opportunity to roll out Strive’s innovative technology globally in our joint projects in the future.”

Strive’s software solutions run independently of the internal IT infrastructure and can be installed in the cloud and on-premise data centers. Therefore, Strive meets all requirements for the integration to Qvest Media’s multicloud management platform Qvest.Cloud, say the companies. “With Qvest Media, we found the ideal partner for the integration and marketing of our products,” said Alexander Schäfer, CEO at Strive. “We are convinced that our expertise in streaming technology teamed with Qvest Media’s longstanding market experience makes a very compelling combination for OTT providers, broadcasters and media companies.”
