Kanalturk Selects Erstream Powered by Octoshape Infinite HD-M for Broadband Delivered TV Services

Viewers enjoy higher quality video experiences and watch for longer.
Copenhagen and Istanbul(7/9/2013) -

Erstream, a Turkey-based media services provider, and Octoshape, an industry leader in cloud-based streaming technology, announced today that they have been chosen by Kanalturk to provide broadband TV video distribution services to Kanalturk’s customers in Turkey. The services are provided through Erstream, and powered by the Octoshape Infinite HD-M suite of multicast technologies, which enables Kanalturk to provide the highest video quality to their end users, and drive more video consumption from their portal.

The partnership leverages Octoshape’s Infinite HD-M federated multicast platform to enhance its linear service offerings into Turkey. Octoshape’s advanced video distribution technology provides high definition Internet video regardless of the geographic location, connectivity or network conditions of the viewer.

“Kanalturk is in the business of providing high quality programming to our viewers,” said Yavuz Selim Bilgin, Senior Software Engineer, Kanalturk. “We are excited to be working with Erstream and Octoshape so that we can extend the reach of our TV broadcast to the Internet and offer television-like user experiences.”

“We wanted to make sure that the new Kanalturk user experience lived up to the channel’s expectations,” said Tatyana Levitskaya, EMEA Sales Director of Erstream. “With Octoshape’s Infinite HD-M™we are able to guarantee that the channel viewer will always enjoy the highest quality available.”

The Infinite HD-M technologies enable TV quality, TV scale and TV economics for broadband TV over the Internet. Infinite HD-M enables large volumes of broadband TV to be delivered efficiently over last mile networks without requiring the vast infrastructure upgrades necessary with traditional video delivery platforms. In addition, the patented technologies provide a TV-like viewing experience without any of the traditional buffering and slow startup of HTTP-based video.

“We are excited to be working with Kanalturk, one of Turkey’s premier television programming providers,” said Michael Koehn Milland, CEO of Octoshape. “Enabling Kanalturk to enhance their user experience, which has already lead to longer view times, is creating real value for them.”

Telco and cable operators that are part of the Infinite HD-M federated network receive the signals via native IP multicast in a way that allows them to easily manage large volumes of traffic without upgrading their Internet capacity. Octoshape’s federated linear broadband TV ecosystem will continue to expand globally in carefully planned phases, adding content contribution partners, Tier 1 broadband providers, connected television manufacturers and conditional access providers.
