In a partnership aimed at enabling new services for Broadpeak’s cable, IPTV and over-the-top (OTT)TV customers, Colo.-based Wowza Media Systems licensed its unified media server software to Broadpeak, a global provider of multiplatform, broadband, video-delivery solutions.

The deal allows Broadpeak, recently spun off from Technicolor, to add “significant new capabilities” to its innovative Mediator content delivery network (CDN) management platform for cable, IPTV and OTT customers. Users of the relatively new Mediator system now can deploy Wowza Media Server 2 software to extend the capabilities of that system, providing “simultaneous streaming support for Adobe Flash, Microsoft Silverlight, Apple iOS, Android, BlackBerry, and other players,” the companies said earlier today.”

The Wowza Media Server 2 video engine delivers content to viewers on any screen — desktops, mobile devices and televisions. Broadpeak says its scalable Mediator CDN management platform relies on “intelligent popularity management to optimize both storage capacity and load balancing to ensure high performance.”

“Thus, Broadpeak customers can use all of the most popular platforms to deliver content efficiently from a single set of live or on-demand encodes, eliminating the hassle, time and expense of managing multiple configurations,” it adds.
