BNI Video, a software company backed by Cisco, Comcast Interactive Capital, and Time Warner Cable, has announced a video control plane that enables video service providers (VSPs) in the cable, telecommunications and wireless industries to achieve gains in service delivery flexibility, scalability, velocity and reliability. The company also announced that it has raised more than $16 million from its industry backers, as well as from venture capital firms Charles River Ventures and Castile Ventures.

BNI’s video control plane provides the foundation that allows operators to extend their services to incorporate different forms of content from multiple sources. The company’s software gives VSPs the functionality and control they need to deploy video and other next-generation services to any end point.

BNI’s software serves a strategic role in the VSP’s video ecosystem, connecting content to subscribers, enabling transcoding and digital rights management, invoking quality of service to ensure the content produces the appropriate user experience, and interfacing with billing and entitlements so that it is correctly monetized.

BNI Video’s first two products, a video control plane and CDN manager, are available now.
