iWedia to Release an ABR Media Player Optimized for Live TV Use Cases

LAUSANNE, Switzerland — iWedia, a leading provider of software components and solutions for TV devices to service operators and Consumer Electronics manufacturers, today announced the release of an Adaptive Bitrate (ABR) media player optimized for live TV use cases.

Developed and maintained in-house, Teatro ABR Media Player gives support to the latest versions of HLS and DASH. It is pre-integrated with a number of DRM, analytics, and ad insertion systems. Designed to be light and low resources demanding (CPU, memory), it allows for fast zapping and implements advanced bitrate adaptation algorithms. It is available for Android TV and AOSP as well as for Linux.

“Mastering the ABR player is key for a service operator deploying live TV services OTT,” says Krsto Lazić, Product Manager at iWedia. “And this may prove to be complicated with the open source solutions which come along with the OS. As Teatro ABR Media Player is our own product, we are in a position to integrate it rapidly and efficiently within any end-to-end network configuration.”

Teatro ABR Media Player has already been chosen by several major operators which are preparing the launch of their services that are expected to happen before the end of the year or beginning of next year.
