MAXISAT recognized the growing trend in multiscreen video consumption and tapped ARRIS to deliver a technology solution that could scale to the variety of video data rates and resolutions needed to match the dynamic bandwidth of unmanaged networks. The ARRIS GT-3 gives MAXISAT an efficient and reliable video transcoding solution for the anytime, anywhere, any-device environment of today's multiscreen services.
MAXISAT integrated the ARRIS GT-3 into its Content Hub to allow it to host and operate infrastructure on behalf of service providers, yielding significant cost and bandwidth savings. The GT-3's high throughput capacity merges industry-leading channel density with low power consumption to empower MAXISAT to provide higher-quality video using the same amount of bandwidth, or deliver the same video quality at much lower bitrates – a key consideration for bandwidth-constrained networks.
"With our MAXICASTER solution and Content Hub, MAXISAT can now directly address one of the traditional challenges faced by Service Providers and Broadcasters entering the online multiscreen domain: delivering tomorrow's entertainment experiences on today's networks," said
The success of the Content Hub led MAXISAT to commence work to incorporate the ARRIS GT-3 as the pre-selected transcoder as part of its international expansion of the MAXICASTER solution.
"Making this service a reality requires technology which is up to the task. The unmatched transcoding capabilities offered by the ARRIS GT-3 allowed us to address the multiscreen requirements of our customers with a quality of experience which is second to none. When combined within our hosted and operated service, we believe our new MAXICASTER solution empowers us to take a unique position in the managed TV service market," continued Blom.
"MAXISAT is a forward-thinking company that knows how to meet increasing consumer demand for a varied and convenient video content experience – both today and in the future," said
