Technicolor Spinoff Leverages Smartvision CDN and VoD Server to Power Multiscreen Strategy for Network Service Providers

CESSON-SÉVIGNÉ, France — Broadpeak today announced that it will make its international debut at IBC2010, unveiling its suite of powerful video delivery solutions for network service providers.

Focused on content delivery network (CDN) and video-on-demand (VoD) servers, Broadpeak is a spinoff from Technicolor comprising a team of experts who previously worked at Technicolor and spent years working with large-scale deployments by leading IPTV, cable, and hybrid pay-TV operators worldwide.

Technicolor (Paris: FR0010918292; NYSE: TCH) has granted an exclusive license to Broadpeak for the software integrated in its Smartvision CDN and VoD server and will continue to propose Broadpeak’s video delivery solutions to its existing and new customers while Broadpeak will support the maintenance of these products.

“We welcome the creation of Broadpeak,” said Romain Waller, SVP Connect, IPTV and VoIP, Technicolor. “We are confident that its dedication to video delivery network components will allow it to take our proven Smartvision CDN and VoD server portfolio to the next level, for the ultimate benefit of Technicolor customers and video network service providers in general.”

At IBC, the company will showcase its line of CDN components that enable operators to deliver and scale video services such as VoD over managed networks and the open Internet with a differentiating quality of experience for viewers. Broadpeak will be exhibiting at stand 2.C40b.

“Broadpeak is dedicated to fulfilling the needs of network service providers for premium video delivery,” said Jacques Le Mancq, Broadpeak’s president and CEO. “Our solutions enable them to efficiently set up content delivery architectures that are optimized for multiscreen service offerings and help them realize new revenue streams.”

Among the state-of-the-art products Broadpeak will demonstrate are its BkS100 Streamer series video streaming appliances, powered by advanced caching technology. The Streamers, which power any VoD application and other value-added applications like network-based personal video recording and time-shifting services, can be outfitted with a lightning-fast dual 10Gb Ethernet interface. The BkM100 Mediator series appliances, which provide intelligent popularity management and load balancing, will also be demonstrated. This unified CDN management solution enables network service providers to efficiently deliver content to multiple screens over any type of network. Finally, the BkE100 Experience series appliances will be shown, demonstrating delivery of unparalleled quality of user experience, combining fast channel change and packet loss recovery capabilities.

Broadpeak will also showcase a demonstration of its adaptive streaming technology that fits into existing networks to maximize user-experience under varying network conditions.
