Turkey's AirTies Wireless Networks is teaming up with cloud-based over-the-top (OTT) video streaming developer Octoshape to offer broadcasters a global IPTV platform.
AirTies' set-top boxes are being incorporated with Octoshape's disruptive video acceleration technologies, which optimise standard streaming formats to be delivered via high performance IETF standard, multicast-enabled protocols over the Internet.
"Integrating Octoshape's InfiniteHDTM breaks the barriers of geographical reach and TV quality viewing for OTT IPTV where traditional streaming solutions fall short," says Bulent Celebi, founder and chairman, AirTies Wireless Networks.
"Watching an AirTies-Octoshape powered experience is equal or even better than a traditional broadcast equivalent. The combined solution enables our customers to increase their consumer footprint by addressing subscribers beyond their network boundaries and reducing time to market."
Michael Koehn Milland, CEO, Octoshape added: "The partnership with AirTies is another major step forward in enabling the transition from broadcast TV to broadband TV on connected devices. Our combined customers can now enjoy the same TV quality, scale, and economics that traditional broadcast systems have historically guaranteed."
