CAT develops on-demand IPTV content with Digital Rapids

1 Mar 2013

Thai telco CAT Telecom has selected a range of video encoders from Canadian firm Digital Rapids to power linear and on-demand content on its new IPTV platform ‘e-Entertainment’, IPTV News reports. The e-Entertainment service gives participating content providers a complete platform – including ingest, encoding, delivery and middleware – for creating and delivering their content to viewers across a broad range of IP-based viewing platforms. The Digital Rapids encoders transform each source video feed into multiple simultaneous outputs for IPTV multicast; over-the-top (OTT) delivery to set-top boxes (STBs); and mobile and Web streaming. CAT Telecom has also selected multi-encoder management software from Digital Rapids to provide centralised management, automation, remote monitoring and scheduling of the video encoders.
