Unlock more live and interactive video services with greater flexibility in a simple pay-as-you-go model. Live video is a path to differentiation and delivering a high quality live experience promoting viewer engagement and subscriber retention. Cloud enables flexibility, but cloud egress costs continue to dampen investment in cloud origination of video programming. Customers who are looking for solutions that are multi-cloud and do not lock them in to a specific cloud provider.

  • Originate live programming from cloud deployed infrastructure
  • Multi-cloud enabled dynamically deployed live OTT channel infrastructure
  • Robust integrated monitoring and content aware processing leads to next gen "Self-x" channels
  • Unlock live programming that would have previously been too expensive to deliver
  • Leverages Telestream technology where applicable while providing a framework for deep ecosystem integrations

Creating your next channel has never been easier.

Taking too much time creating channels means you’re missing out on revenue. And, what is the plan when something goes wrong?

Without proper monitoring and instant channel creation, one-off events might not be feasible, and by the time you do get your channel up and running, a backlog of content coming in creates bottlenecks…meaning less content for your viewers, and less revenue for you.

  • When your time to channel is reduced, premium short-term events become more accessible.
  • When your workflows extend to the cloud, you can utilize the latest encoding and access extra capacity.
  • If something does go wrong, a self-healing architecture and simultaneous worldwide monitoring alert you and fix the problem.
  • Whether live or file-based video, OptiQ Channel gives you instant channel creation, orchestration and management control with fully integrated monitoring.

 What is OptiQ Channel?

 OptiQ Channel is a one-click channel creation in cloud environments.

 OptiQ Channel empowers you to create new revenue streams by enabling short-term (premium and non-premium) channels/events, or additional content such as highlight reels, player bios and event histories.

OptiQ Channel offers a migration path to hybrid cloud capabilities for content providers that do not have the skills to embrace cloud. We know there is a need to migrate to cloud, but complexity has to be removed to enable the move.  Content providers want to have a choice in which cloud provider to use. Many do not want to be locked into a single provider but simply do not have a choice. OptiQ Channel supports the major cloud providers, opening the possibility for multi-cloud deployment.
  • Service providers and content aggregators are turning business away due to not being able to create channels quickly for short-term sports/other events.
  • When at capacity on-premise due to multiple major events, content providers have to leave valuable additional content on the shelf due to lack of streaming infrastructure.

 Leverage the latest streaming technology

 Efficient resource usage  Create. Test. Take down or scale up.
OptiQ Channel employs the latest encoding and packaging capabilities for video streaming. Video streaming is constantly evolving, and by leveraging the cloud for streaming, content providers will always be able to access the latest capabilities. UHD/4k HDR media processing requires a lot of CPU/GPU/ASIC resources. OptiQ Channel allows content providers to offload SD/HD capabilities to the cloud while leveraging valuable accelerated hardware on premise for CPU-intensive video streaming. Plus, OptiQ Channel enables maintenance offload and additional capacity during peak loads. Dynamic innovation is essential to today’s dynamic business world. Organizations need the ability to rapidly startup new projects, quickly scale up if needed and shut down if they don’t. In addition to empowering trials of new channels, OptiQ Channel allowS people to build confidence in cloud migration.
