QVC, the world’s biggest shopping network, recently launched new streaming and VOD content services, using the HERO platform from encoding/transcoding experts, Media Excel.
QVC says its return on investment has significantly increased by having a single centralised system to manage the complex distribution of multi-format video in multiple territories, with the ability to upscale to add more countries and transcode for new platforms easily, as and when desired.
“We have been extremely pleased with Media Excel’s HERO platform for achieving high quality, adaptive bitrate video and transcoding at incredible density per encoder,” comments Leo Smith, broadcast engineering projects manager at QVC.
Media Excel specialises in defining the adaptive bitrate, multi-device transcoding standard for multi-screen video delivery. The platform is a hybrid approach that provides the best in scalability, density, flexibility and power efficiency, while offering multi-screen HD delivery.
