SoftAtHome tunes into smooth streaming

French software firm SoftAtHome has integrated Microsoft’s Smooth Streaming technology into its SoftAtHome Operating Platform (SOP), adding adaptive bitrate technology to its latest software platform for digital home services.

The addition of Smooth Streaming technology is particularly aimed at broadcasters and service providers looking to deliver over-the-top Web services to set-top boxes outside their managed networks.

Smooth Streaming Is Microsoft’s take on adaptive bitrate techniques, which let end-users play back video without stuttering, buffering, or freezing, providing the best user experience possible at all times for the given network conditions and device capacity.

“By integrating Microsoft’s Smooth streaming technology, SoftAtHome is complementing its OTT offer to fully unleash the power of rate adaptive connectivity for broadcasters and service providers” said Arnaud Bensaid, Vice President Marketing at SoftAtHome.

SoftAtHome is backed by Orange, Sagemcom and Etisalat to deliver convergence through an operating platform for the digital home environment.
