Elemental Technologies has announced that its video processing systems have been selected by Skymedia, a broadband service provider in Mongolia, to power OTT and advanced television services nationwide.

Skymedia is using Elemental Live systems to process content for delivery over the operator’s broadband and mobile networks. Skymedia services 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. The Elemental deployment processes content for more than 80 channels broadcasting 24×7.

“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.”

“We are thrilled to provide a fully optimized multiscreen video processing solution that directly and efficiently supports Skymedia’s advanced television services today – and a roadmap that assures their ability to effectively meet consumer demands in the future,” said David Godfrey, VP sales Asia Pacific, Elemental.
