FRISCO, TEXAS – April 19, 2022 – MediaKind announces that it has been selected by Orange Belgium to offer enriched consumer experiences to its subscribers on a range of devices, from mobiles, set-top boxes and tablets to the main television screens. MediaKind’s Video Storage and Processing Platform (VSPP) and live encoding solutions have been deployed to enable a series of targeted new services to be launched on Orange Belgium smart devices.

The smart devices are powered by Android IOS or Web, which benefits Orange subscribers by bringing entertainment together in one place with live TV and streaming apps, Google Assistant voice search and Chromecast built-in. Powered by Emmy®-winning technology, MediaKind Encoding Live bridges consumer and TV streams by encoding and enriching live content at the headend to make it accessible on the subscriber’s screen of choice. MediaKind Encoding Live brings together over 25 years of innovation and optimization in the media workflow – from ingest to packaging – to deliver the highest quality picture and software applications for any screen on bandwidth in all live video environments and networks.

The MediaKind deployment also provides new cloud DVR recording capabilities that allow Orange Belgium subscribers to record live content. DVR recording is powered by MediaKind’s Video Storage and Processing Platform (VSPP), a unified solution for live, cloud, on-demand and time/location shifted services, offering better performance, reduced latency and lower CAPEX and TCO.

Thomas Parvais, Director Fixed Access Broadband & TV services Orange Belgium, said: “Belgian viewers are massively adopting streaming services. By leveraging MediaKind’s expertise in live video, we can evolve from channel aggregation to service aggregation, which means we can deliver more personalized experiences through Orange TV apps. Our subscribers now have access to a priority user experience that offers more services and better control over how they consume live content across multiple devices. They can now watch what they want, where they want, on any device, or save and catch up later.

VSPP provides CBR and ABR streaming services, allowing users to create a unified cluster with a single recording copy and output any ABR format in a Just-In-Time package. It is integrated into the Orange Belgium network to optimize the recording of all TV services. By doing so, Orange Belgium can launch a full range of next-generation TV services efficiently and cost-effectively.

Damien Montessuit, Senior Vice President, Global Sales, MediaKind, said, “In today’s era, easy and quick access to content is critical to business success. We are excited to deploy our world-class advanced video services solutions and power Orange Belgium’s next generation television and entertainment offering. MediaKind is proud to help media companies in their mission to provide consumers with first-class user experiences. Our encoding and live streaming technology will help transform the viewing experience for Orange Belgium subscribers, ensuring seamless availability of media content on any device.
