Blue Stream Fiber taps Vecima for multi-vendor IPTV platform

Aug. 24, 2020
With Vecima's MediaScaleX, Blue Stream Fiber will offer a fully IP -integrated platform to its customers.

Vecima Networks Inc., a developer of integrated hardware and scalable software platforms for broadband access, content delivery and telematics applications, this week announced that Blue Stream Fiber has selected Vecima’s MediaScaleX solution to power the delivery of its complex multi-vendor IPTV solution. Leveraging Vecima’s technical experience, the platform will be managed and implemented for Blue Stream via Vecima’s Master Project Management system.

With MediaScaleX, Blue Stream Fiber will offer a full IP integrated solution to its customers. Deployed across over 300 channels, including local, sports, international, and premium content sources, subscribers will benefit from modern features such as network DVR (nDVR) and time-shifted services like startover/catch-up (SoCu). The new services offering represents a significant quality of experience improvement for Blue Stream Fiber’s video subscribers, the company says. 

“In order to provide our customers with a great TV experience, Blue Stream Fiber is in the midst of upgrading all of our customers to the most advanced IPTV platform in the industry. We chose Vecima because of their ability to deliver on edge capacity, an efficient private copy solution, transcoding flexibility, and centralized storage,” said Joe Canavan, CEO at Blue Stream Fiber. “Strong references from other operators, their ability to coordinate IPTV resources across multiple vendors, and a fundamental understanding of the challenges posed by IPTV projects made Vecima the right choice for us.”

Upgrading its existing system to a complete end-to-end solution allows Blue Stream Fiber to consolidate IPTV Transcoding (File & Live), Origin, Cache, and Centralized Storage functions. Streaming its media workflow from ingest to delivery accelerates Blue Stream Fiber’s go-to-market timelines, reduces operational costs, and expands its footprint, the provider says.

“Demand for video streaming is increasing globally, and consumers expect simplicity in watching video anytime and anywhere,” said Clay McCreery, Chief Operating Officer at Vecima. “Mid-size operators are looking to upgrade their existing platforms with fast launch timelines, and limited resources. Vecima is able to seamlessly serve as an extension of their internal technical and project management teams, utilizing prior experience to deliver on a schedule that meets aggressive timelines.”
