Broadpeak said its BkS350 origin server, BkS400 video cache server, and BkA100 analytics tool have been integrated with the NexStreaming NexPlayer SDK to improve OTT multiscreen delivery.

Using an end-to-end solution that includes Broadpeak's server, CDN analytics solutions, and the NexPlayer SDK, pay-TV operators are promised a superior quality of experience for subscribers on any screen.

"By teaming up with Broadpeak, we are able to elevate the video experience on devices using the NexPlayer SDK video player for both HLS and MPEG-DASH formats," said Carlos Lucas, VP at NexStreaming.

"In addition, Broadpeak's analytics solutions provide useful information to operators, allowing them to quickly resolve content delivery issues and bring increased satisfaction to their subscribers,” said Lucas.

Broadpeak's video server and analytics solutions form a complete video delivery chain for pay-TV operators, simplifying their OTT multiscreen operations. Video is packaged using HLS or the next-generation MPEG-DASH ABR standard and protected with DRM, ensuring a high-quality, secure experience for end users on any device.

After being stored on Broadpeak's BkS350 origin server, video is then streamed to end-user devices via the BkS400 cache server and played out on the NexPlayer SDK.

Included in the solution is Broadpeak's BkA100 analytics system which allows operators to dig deeper into the root causes of video delivery issues, providing feedback on what is going on at the delivery system (i.e., servers and network) and player levels.
