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 idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...

The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data profession...
Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity.

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...
