SimpleStream Poised to Grow Channels with New, Flexible Platform

Bespoke OTT streaming solutions provider scales its business with Garland Partners
London(3/19/2013) -

SimpleStream’s headends have been upgraded to use expandable and redundant solutions from Teracue and Allegro provided by Garland Partners. Teracue provides the DVB-IP gateway technology and Allegro provides the high-density IP transcoding platform.


“SimpleStream is using the Teracue DMM gateways, with each 4RU chassis fully populated with 8 x DMM-140-S2 blades to receive multiple satellite channels and turn them around into IP streams,” states Lorna Garrett, Director of Garland Partners. “Clusters of Allegro AL2400 IP transcoders take in the multiple channels and transcodes them into multiple formats at multiple bitrates for high-quality, OTT delivery services that then target many different end platforms, including PCs, TVs, tablets, and smartphones.”


Garrett explains this was the perfect solution to match SimpleStream’s growth: “As their satellite channel and live streaming offerings grow, they simply add Teracue DMM-140 blades for more ingest of satellite channels, and then increase the number of Allegro AL2400 transcoding modules (up to six) in the same 1RU chassis to carry out more channels of transcoding.”


“We are using broadcast-quality solutions for resilience and improvement of channel density,” said Adam Smith, Founder and CEO of SimpleStream. “The headend from Teracue is more cost effective for DVB-S2 to IP conversion. No decoding and re-encoding of the satellite signal is needed so quality is preserved. The high-quality, high-density Allegro platform is perfect for IP transcoding to multiple formats and is fully integrated with our cloud-based Media Manager software using the HTTP API. We are pleased to have been able to work with Garland Partners on this solution. They have given us great technical and commercial support.”


Garland Partners will be exhibiting at the TV Connect show running from the 19th to 21st of March at the Olympia Exhibition Centre in London.
