MobiTV, Inc, the leader in the delivery of mobile content and services, has announced that MobiTV’s Optimized Delivery Server (ODS), featuring rate adaptation, sub-second channel change, support for multicast and unicast, and exceptional video quality is now certified on Sun Fire Enterprise x64 servers.
“We are very excited to work with MobiTV to bring high-quality TV programming to mobile phones,” said Darrell Jordan-Smith, Vice President, Global Communications and Media Industry. “We are constantly working with our valued partners to help them streamline development time, advance time-to-market, and launch revenue-generating services for their service provider customers.”
In partnership with Sun, the ODS will be available as a packaged solution for customers looking for a scalable and high quality solution for the delivery of live, linear and VOD audio and video content over mobile and broadband networks.
“Our strategic partnership with Sun offered an excellent opportunity to do extensive performance testing of the ODS platform in the Sun Solution Center,” said Kay Johansson, CTO, MobiTV. “As a result of that testing, the ODS platform will be certified as a pre-packaged solution on Sun Hardware for small, medium and large-sized deployments, which can then be configured to scale with customers’ needs.”
A white paper is available from MobiTV highlighting features and functionality of ODS.
