Taiwanese cable TV operator KBRO has chosen Espial MediaBase for its video-on-demand (VOD) platform.

MediaBase will be installed and integrated at KBRO by broadband system integrator Hwacom, providing KBRO with a single, unified solution for delivering video-on-demand (VOD) content.

C.H. Jih, CTO of KBRO, said: "The Espial MediaBase platform allows KBRO to manage, distribute, and stream high-quality video content to our subscribers across Taiwan.

"By using a high-performance VOD platform, we're able to deliver video cost-effectively to a virtually unlimited number of subscribers and viewing platforms over our managed network as well as the internet."

Espial MediaBase offers commercial off-the-shelf servers, allowing KBRO to cost-effectively stream on-demand video to multiple viewing platforms. Using MediaBase's unified content delivery network, KBRO can deliver MPEG and HTTP content to a variety of viewing devices more efficiently, reducing its capital and operational expenses.

Jaison Dolvane, president and CEO, Espial, said: "Espial MediaBase provides a single platform for managing, distributing, and streaming multiscreen content as well as ensuring an excellent user experience with a low cost-of-ownership for KBRO. As the cable television operator's storage needs increase over time, they can simply upgrade their system via a license key update, providing an unmatched flexibility for future growth."
