Multi-platform video workflow solutions provideriStreamPlanet has made available a cloud-based live video workflow platform designed to simplify delivering premium live content to connected devices.
The new Aventus cloud-based virtualised environment is designed to power a media workflow so that resources can be deployed dynamically, scaling workflow infrastructure depending on resource needs. It can be priced to work for one channel to hundreds in both public and private clouds, via SaaS or on-premises software licence deployments.
iStreamPlanet says that with Aventus, content owners, aggregators and distributors can accelerate their live online video strategies by reducing the complexity, time and resources required to provision live streaming channels for delivery of live events and live linear channels. Because it is based on software, the company says that Aventus offers the business benefit of significantly reducing the cost of delivering live video compared to dedicated, interdependent hardware-based infrastructure.
Customers of the new solution already include Microsoft Azure and NBC Sports Digital, who will use the platform to stream NBC Sports Group programming, including the NHL, Notre Dame Football, Premier League and the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, among others.
“Aventus is the culmination of over a dozen years of live streaming experiences,” said Mio Babic, CEO and founder of iStreamPlanet. “We have worked together with the most high profile and innovative companies in media and technology to innovate and create Aventus. We are bringing to market the world’s best cloud based, multiscreen, live video workflow solution.”
