Ripples of the waves made by the online video surge are spreading as Conviva has revealed that its Intelligent Control Platform was used to process more than 45 billion streams in 2013.
The 45 billion streams measured by the video intelligence and big data processing provider in 2013 were seen across more than 1.6 billion devices – including PCs, tablets, smartphones and connected TVs – in 180 countries and on more than 400 premium media video players. This means that Conviva has increased the size of its global intelligence base by more than four times over the last two years.
Taking action with the intelligence gained, Conviva says that it made over four million corrective actions per day for individual viewers, devices and routes to improve the viewing experience and the overall business model of content publishers and service providers around the world. In 2013, Conviva established new relationships with a number of prominent online video providers, including CNTV, the digital arm of China's National Broadcaster, M-Go, and with HBO and HBO Go.
"By expanding the number of streams and devices that feed our big data processing platform, we are better equipped to improve the viewing experience for consumers everywhere," explained Hui Zhang, CEO and co-founder of Conviva. "The data that is collected and analysed through Conviva's Intelligent Control Platform is the key to empowering our customers to deliver TV-quality video over the Internet."
