VisualOn liefert für Swisscom Mobilfernsehen auf Android

SANTA CLARA, Kalifornien, 20. November 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- VisualOn, Inc., ein Multimedia-Softwareunternehmen, das hochqualitatives Video und Audio über verbundene Geräte ermöglicht, gab heute bekannt, man habe Swisscom als Kunden gewonnen. VisualOn ermöglicht es dem Telecom-Anbieter, Live- und On-Demand-TV-Inhalt auf Android-Geräten in der Schweiz bereitzustellen. Swisscom hat den OnStream MediaPlayer+ von VisualOn, eine Lösung, die Playback in hoher Qualität auf verschiedenen Geräten erlaubt, in seine Swisscom TV Android-Anwendung integriert, womit herausragende Unterhaltung nun auf einer noch breiteren Palette von angeschlossenen Geräten angeboten wird.

Der Verbrauch von mobilem Video wird gemäß Cisco weltweit zwischen 2011 und 2016 um 90 Prozent zunehmen. Inzwischen haben Android-Geräte weiterhin den größten Marktanteil und die Vielzahl der Android-Telefone stellt eine einzigartige Herausforderung bei der Skalierung von Lösungen zur Bereitstellung von Medien über alle Geräte hinweg dar. Die kosteneffiziente Technologie von VisualOn erlaubt es Swisscom, seinen Kunden hochqualitatives Video- und Audioplayback unabhängig von den unterschiedlichen Formaten, Streamingprotokollen oder den Fähigkeiten der Hardware anzubieten. Mit dieser Anwendung kann Swisscom seine solide Medienplattform ausbauen und den Schweizer Android-Nutzern jetzt 80 Kanäle mit Programmen und über 3.000 Sportveranstaltungen pro Jahr unterwegs anbieten.

„Der internationale Markt ist weiterhin mit den zunehmenden Herausforderungen der Gerätefragmentierung und der Bereitstellung von Medien unterwegs konfrontiert - dies ist genau der Bereich, in dem wir wachsen", sagt Yang Cai, CEO von VisualOn. „Wir skalieren für unsere Kunden, wie z. B. Swisscom, die Medienbereitstellung effizient über alle Geräte hinweg, damit sie ihren Nutzern in der ganzen Welt ein umfasendes und nahtloses Seherlebnis bieten können."

„Wir haben VisualOn als Partner aufgrund des nachgewiesenen Erfolgs bei der Überwindung der Plattformfragmentation ausgewählt", erklärt Stefan Schmidlin, Produktmanager von Swisscom. „Die Leistung des OnStream MediaPlayer+ erlaubt es uns, unseren Kunden qualitativ hochwertiges Live-TV-Streaming für Android-Geräte aller Art und Größe bereitzustellen."

Die kostenlose App von Swisscom TV ist jetzt für alle Marken von Android-Smartphones sowie für iPhones und iPads verfügbar. Für Mobilgeräte mit Windows steht eine gesonderte TV-App zur Verfügung. Für die Verwendung der Replay- und Live Pause-Funktion ist ein Swisscom TV air Abonnement erforderlich.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
Designing IoT applications is complex, but deploying them in a scalable fashion is even more complex.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nara Rajagopalan is CEO of Accelerite, will discuss the fundamental architecture of IoT applications, ...
