Cloud migration: MediaKind and Arqiva announce new partnership

MediaKind and Arqiva announce a new partnership to introduce a media service proposition that will address the core challenges that broadcasters and operators face in migrating broadcast and streaming services to the cloud. The new strategic partnership will deliver a new cloud-native, fully managed service for the aggregation, processing, and delivery of television services for any platform (broadcast and OTT) in any region, at any scale.

The collaboration brings together MediaKind’s cloud native encoding, multiplexing and packaging and life cycle management with Arqiva’s experience in managed service delivery spanning integration, monitoring and connectivity services. The managed service for broadcast and OTT headend systems is underpinned by a global media network, best-in-breed content processing software and tier-1 support and operations. It is designed to improve flexibility, remove the complexity and significant upfront costs associated with delivering video processing functions, while accelerating broadcasters’ and operators’ adoption of cloud technology, ensuring a rapid time to market and supporting the transition from broadcast to OTT delivery.

Built on a scalable and reliable cloud infrastructure, the service will enable a more sustainable media content delivery. The cloud-native software ensures that power and resources are only used when needed, avoiding an ‘always-on’ infrastructure. In addition, the new offering will be structured on a cloud-based, subscription-like commercial model, providing cost-efficient means for operators and broadcasters to pay for services as they need them.

The service will align with all industry-standard linear broadcast formats, encryption technologies, and downstream mechanisms. It will also support the latest OTT processing requirements for distributing television content on internet streaming services, with pre-integrated ad-insertion technology to monetize OTT and broadcast streams with addressable advertising. All new service components will be deployed, maintained, and upgraded individually, using the latest automation techniques, ensuring that the platform can adapt to meet current device and security requirements.
