Telergy set top boxes among first to support “Adaptive Bit Rate Streaming”
Telergy announced today that their popular streamlined range of set top boxes, are now among the first to support Adaptive Bit Rate Streaming technology.
“Research shows that Adaptive Bit Rate Streaming has become a more desired technology as over the top streaming continued its growing attraction as a service,” according to Chris Green , Sales Director of Telergy N.V., “and being one of the first to provide Adaptive Bit Rate Streaming to fulfill the needs of IPTV service providers is what Telergy is all about”.
As an end user this is of course good news, as irritating stutters of online streaming become a thing of the past. Moreover, it is a feature that should make IPTV service providers take note, not only because of the forever demanding requirements of the average streaming consumer, but also because streaming producers today are leaning towards HD content as a standard, which in turn means that those of us with slower connections would suffer in the long run.
Of course Adaptive Streaming is not a new tech and has undergone many adaptations over the years, so why has Telergy become one of the first to provide such a service in their products now?
“It is only recently that even the lowest bit rates can now support a good enough streaming quality, and has not really developed in a way that can allow an STB to support as easily as say a PC” stated Tony Haines, (COO/CTO) of Telergy N.V.
So with the growth of IPTV as a whole, this comes as not only a welcomed, but a needed addition to the STB arsenal with Telergy looking to fire the first volley… it can be said that the future of streaming has never been smoother.
