RENNES, France — Oct. 9, 2018 — Broadpeak®, a leading provider of content delivery network (CDN) and video streaming solutions for content providers and pay-TV operators worldwide, today announced that Ultravision, a leading pay-TV operator in Mexico, has selected Broadpeak solutions to power its new IPTV multiscreen service. Ultravision will rely on Broadpeak's BkM100 video delivery manager, BkS400 HTTP video cache servers, and BkS350 origin packager. By monitoring live and on-demand content, and then caching popular content based on usage patterns, Broadpeak solutions will reduce Ultravision's content delivery costs while providing a high quality of experience (QoE) to subscribers on every screen.

"We chose Broadpeak to be our technology provider because its solutions are pre-integrated with a wide range of ecosystem systems, meeting our requirements for scalability, and successfully passing our rigorous proof-of-concept test," said Patrício Zorrilla, Vice President of Ultra telecom at Ultravision. "Our initial plan is to launch 50 live IPTV multiscreen channels by the end of this year. Broadpeak's solutions are completely software-based, highly flexible, and scalable, which will ensure a smooth deployment and make it easy for us to add more channels and offerings as the service grows in popularity."

Broadpeak's BkS350 origin and packaging server includes on-the-fly packaging capabilities that will reduce Ultravision's processing and storage costs. With the BkS350, live content will only be recorded once and delivered to a broad range of devices — including smartphones, tablets, set-top boxes, and games consoles — in the requested ABR format. Using Broadpeak's BkS400 HTTP video cache servers and BkM100 video delivery manager, Ultravision can cache content at the headend level and reduce load at the origin server.

"IPTV multiscreen video consumption is growing in Mexico and launching this new service will put Ultravision at a distinct competitive advantage, making them the first Mexican operator with a pure IPTV multiscreen service," said Jacques Le Mancq, CEO at Broadpeak. "We are proud to accompany major operators, such as Ultravision, in the deployment of their video delivery systems and in the launch of successful IPTV multiscreen services."
