Since it was introduced in 2012, nanoCDN has been adopted by more than 25 global vendors for use in set-top boxes, home gateways, WiFi routers, broadband gateways, and HDMI dongles. Partnering with SmarDTV represents the 50th integration for nanoCDN - a huge achievement for making live television delivery to any device scalable and affordable. Through unmatched deployment and ecosystem expertise for multicast ABR technology, Broadpeak leads the industry in helping operators deliver broadcast-quality video on every screen.
Leveraging home networks, nanoCDN multicast ABR enables operators to manage the consumption peaks of live ABR services for millions of simultaneous viewers cost-effectively, using only a few megabits per second from their networks. nanoCDN supports multiple use cases, including live TV, zero latency, multiscreen delivery via satellite, and 4K video distribution, answering all of the challenges that pay-TV operators face in delivering live and on-demand services to tablets, smartphones, connected TVs, and other OTT devices.
"Multicast ABR is changing the world of multiscreen service delivery, and we are proud to be the first technology provider that offered a working ABR multicast solution deployed by leading operators worldwide," said Jacques Le Mancq, CEO, Broadpeak. "Creating partnerships with CPE providers like SmarDTV, we're able to get nanoCDN into more homes and venues, transforming the multiscreen video delivery landscape."
