Telestream Focuses on Enterprise-Scale Live Streaming

In its first fully integrated exhibit since acquiring IneoQuest and Vidcheck, Telestream will highlight how these acquisitions add to its media production and distribution ecosystem.

IneoQuest has video quality monitoring and analytics solutions, while Vidchecker has automated QC solutions for file-based production workflows.

A key focus for Telestream at IBC will be spotlighting the live streaming and VOD space, which has grown from relatively small-scale streaming operations to enterprise-scale delivery to multiple OTT platforms. In particular, Telestream will showcase the latest version of Lightspeed Live Stream - the company’s enterprise-scale live streaming platform.

Lightspeed Live Stream recognizes SCTE 35/104 triggers and enables industry standard server side and edge ad supported live services for programmatic ad-insertion and content replacement. With this feature, distributors can respect content rights and monetize more viewing windows. UHD and HDR support provides a premium solution today and a future proof investment.

“Telestream streaming solutions are designed for the ever-expanding ecosystem in which they operate,” explains Scott Murray, VP Marketing at Telestream. “As audiences are moving to more viewing platforms, it is paramount that content distributors are armed with technology to reach those customers wherever they are. They must ensure their programming is both available in and optimized to each viewing window at the highest quality while preserving rights agreements.  With the latest enhancements to our Lightspeed Live products, broadcasters and content distributors are empowered with tools that seamlessly orchestrate the video workflow, delivering the right program at the right time with the right policy to the audience. IneoQuest solutions give distributors a window into the media lifecycle to ensure quality is maintained at every step along the distribution chain.”

Telestream will highlight Unified Streaming as an option to Lightspeed Live Stream for an extended format and DRM (Digital Rights Management) support. The combination provides just-in-time packaging of Adobe HTTP Dynamic Streams (HDS), Apple HTTP Live Streams (HLS), Microsoft Smooth Streams (MSS) and MPEG-DASH formats, coupled with the most comprehensive DRM support available.

“This solution ensures that broadcasters and content owners no longer have to worry about ad-blockers cutting into online revenue,” says Murray.

Another European first for IBC is the latest major new version of Lightspeed Live Capture, which provides encoding of real-time SD, HD and UHD into all common high-quality mezzanine formats, while supplying a streaming proxy for each channel being processed. This integrated hardware and software appliance combines multiple CPU and GPU cores as well as targeted ASIC CODEC acceleration to deliver flexible and efficient encoding performance.

Telestream will introduce Vantage Elastic Domain, a new scaling model that allows users to deploy instances of Telestream’s Vantage media processing software based on changing business needs. The tool can now run on public and private virtualized infrastructure with a multi-node orchestration engine that “capitalizes on the flexibility of virtual infrastructure.”

Also on show are advances in Telestream Cloud, a video encoding SaaS (software as a service) which “extends the reach of encoding capabilities to a wider audience seeking Telestream quality encoding, while offering cloud-encoding scalability for current users”

New at IBC, Telestream says it will demonstrate quality control solutions and auto-transcription services to support captioning and subtitling applications.
