Mongolian pay-TV operator Skymedia has embarked on a programme to power over-the-top television (OTT) and advanced television services nationwide.

The leading broadband service provider aims to make live linear and on-demand content available to subscribers on iPhone, iPad and Android devices as well as PCs and IP set-top boxes. To ensure it can process content adequately and supply premium multiscreen content for nationwide distribution, Skymedia has turned to Elemental Technologies.

The supplier of video solutions for multiscreen content delivery says that it will ensure Skymedia processes content for more than 80 channels broadcasting 24/7. It has supplied Elemental Live technology that provides real-time encoding for linear pay-TV broadcast as well as live streaming to new media platforms. The system is designed to integrate seamlessly into an end-to-end workflow, eliminating configuration complexity and optimising video for multiscreen viewing.

“The encoding density, rich feature set and unmatched ability to output content in multiple formats make Elemental video processing systems vital to providing premium multiscreen services to our customers,” said Gantogoo Zundui, CTO of Skymedia. “Easy system integration with Skymedia middleware and OTT workflows, flexible support for our IPTV headend migration and strong local support from Elemental are all key to meeting rapidly changing viewer demands and growing our subscriber base.”
