Live TV and VOD infrastructure platform provider Anevia has launched a new cloud-based video delivery service allowing storage and cloud streaming of over-the-top (OTT) media content.

The new system is based on the integration of Amazon Web Services with Anevia's core ViaMotion products which comprise a multiscreen OTT video software suite for telecommunication service providers, broadcasters and content owners. It is used for deploying multiscreen solutions for headends and content delivery networks including live nPVR, catch-up and time-shifting.

"With the rapid adoption of multiscreen services, operators need to virtualise and scale their delivery capacities in order to sustain consumer demand for video content on the Internet," explained Anevia co-founder and CTO Damien Lucas. "This new system ... enables operators and broadcasters to expand their multiscreen services quickly efficiently by extending their storage and processing resources in the Cloud. We will be demonstrating at IBC the flexibility this system offers to broadcasters and multimedia publishers as they move to the third generation of content delivery platforms. ViaMotion offers on-demand TV solutions from the cloud, allowing operators to develop their online video platform to offer cloud TV to their subscribers, including live, VOD, catch-up and nPVR services."
