Uruguayan cable operator TCC has chosen video servers from French firm Broadpeak to power its new over-the-top (OTT) video initiative, which will see the company complement its cable TV service with OTT streams delivered to its cable set-top boxes.
The cableco has chosen Broadpeak’s BkM100 Mediator unified CDN manager, BkS300 multiformat streaming video server, and BkS400 HTTP video cache server to deliver linear and video-on-demand content over the top of its HFC cable network to connected devices.
Javier Ruete, CEO of TCC, said: “Broadpeak’s CDN technologies provide us with the most efficient and cost-effective solution for delivering our video content while optimising network and storage resources. Leveraging the flexibility offered by Broadpeak solutions, we can easily add catch-up TV, analytics, and wholesale CDN features to enhance the OTT service.”
TCC is the country’s third-largest cable operator in terms of market share, according to the latest research from Informa Telecoms & Media (publisher of IP&TV News), with 50,220 subscribers at the end of June 2012 – behind market leader Cablevision with 108,100 and nearest rival Nuevo Siglo with 50,750.
