SelenioNext™ and SelenioEdge™ enable unique TV Everywhere capability

Imagine Communications, a market share leader of media software and networking solutions serving the global media and entertainment markets, today introduced its TV Everywhere vision and portfolio. Leading the portfolio are SelenioNext adaptive bit rate (ABR) transcoding technology and the SelenioEdge content delivery network (CDN) software, which combine to create an end-to-end, TV Everywhere solution to meet growing demand for optimized live video stream distribution across a variety of platforms.

“TV Everywhere is an essential requirement with all of our customers as consumers demand access to more content from more locations on more devices,” said Charlie Vogt, CEO of Imagine Communications. “Our highly dense, scalable and operationally efficient TV Everywhere portfolio enables customers to deliver optimized experiences across multiscreen environments. Empowered by Software Defined Networking and Workflows (SDN/SDW) and MediaCentral, we are in a unique position to provide end-to-end media and playout solutions that seamlessly integrate with TV Everywhere distribution models, from content origination and monetization to the mobile screen.”

SelenioEdge provides limitless streaming scalability to a wide range of end-user devices such as smart phones, tablets and set-top-boxes using standard formats, including Apple’s HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) and DASH. SelenioEdge is based on state-of-the-art, high-availability web technologies optimized for cache-efficient streaming of live channels at throughput of up to 20 gigabits per second and capable of servicing tens of thousands of simultaneous users. When combined with SelenioNext, a high-density ABR transcoder with integrated packager and origin server, the solution provides customers a complete TV Everywhere solution with the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

“Our customers are looking for ways to extend their reach, particularly in addressing the delivery and monetization of multiscreen content,” said Ron Gutman, Vice President of Technology at Imagine Communications. “Our TV Everywhere approach leverages our customers’ existing investments, providing a means to replicate their current broadcast offering as a multiscreen service, with unparalleled cost structure and time-to-service. We achieve this through portfolio breakthroughs in compression and web technologies and by embracing our new paradigm of service-oriented, software-optimized architecture that utilizes commercial off-the-shelf servers and virtualization of network functions.”
