VANCOUVER, CANADA – WISI, a provider of carrier-grade video solutions, and MobiTV, which offers IP-based video delivery solutions, today announced their new partnership. The Inca Adaptive Bitrate Transcoder 3840, WISI's high-density and power-efficient OTT transcoder, which offers market-leading cost per stream, is now an available option for customers deploying the MobiTV Connect platform.
This collaboration empowers cable operators to invest in and deploy the next generation of video experiences to consumers. Cable operators planning to launch multi-screen services with MobiTV can leverage this relationship and choose WISI's globally-deployed transcoder for their headend.
"We are happy to see how the 3840ABR has been embraced by customers worldwide since launch," said Robert Bell, CEO of WISI America (formally Inca Networks). "[The 3840ABR] is designed to consume as little power as possible while maintaining consistent density and performance."
The 3840ABR is built and shipped from WISI America, the North American headquarters for WISI, a worldwide developer of broadband reception and distribution technology. Powered by VidiOS management and monitoring tools, the 3840ABR enables operators to configure and deploy HD multiscreen video within minutes. VidiOS is a sophisticated, intuitive user interface that includes inbound and outbound video thumbnails, stream sample downloads, extensive statistical analysis and end-to-end process logging.
"MobiTV is excited to formalize our partnership with WISI," said Bill Routt, COO and president at MobiTV. "We are always looking to provide our customers with industry-leading and cost-effective options when it comes to multi-screen encoding like the 3840ABR."
WISI's 3840ABR is now available for MobiTV projects.
