Digisoft.tv sets sail with maritime streaming solution

August 21 2015, Cork – Ireland. Digisoft.tv, a global multiscreen platform provider for the broadcast and telecommunications industry, has deployed its LTE streaming platform at the largest annual sailing regatta in the world; Kiel Week.

OKSH, who have been broadcasting the event for more than a decade, deployed a solution to deliver live transmissions from outside broadcast units to a central studio for relay on to the main live TV service, Kiel TV.

Digisoft used its CastConductor video orchestration system to manage the broadcast of multiple adaptive HLS streams over LTE and IP. The platform delivers a more cost effective solution compared with traditional satellite or microwave backhaul.

Peter Willers, General Manager of OKSH said “We were looking for an economical solution to enable uplinks from our outside broadcast units. Digisoft’s technology meant that we could capture live streams from remote locations and deliver them back to our broadcast centre using HLS streaming over a low cost LTE connection.”

CastConductor is Digisoft’s novel video orchestration platform for IPTV and over-the-top solutions. The system delivers video content from kiosks and headends in mass transit environments such as cruise ships, airports and aircraft.
