TV2U streams Soundboxxx from Indonesia

TV2U is celebrating after successfully streaming Soundbooxxx, a not-for-profit hip hop concert in Indonesia, for Indosat Ooredoo, Lemmon.id, Interindo and Bejaminlive.com.

The company demonstrated its IVAN-X platform under demanding conditions, streaming nationally and internationally to any device on any network, with both high quality service and experience, the Australian over-the-top (OTT) media services provider claims.

With the proof of concept service launched in under 24 hours, TV2U streamed over ten hours of content, including archived content prior to the gig and more than two hours of live footage – without errors such as buffering or artefacts, TV2U said.

IVAN-X also delivered real-time analytics for the live and on-demand video, allowing customer to see how, when and where content was seen, consumed and shared by viewers.

“We were amazed by the service provided by TV2U, and by IVAN-X’s ability to quickly and efficiently serve engaging content to our viewers,” said Lemmy Ibrahim, commissioner and owner, Lemmon.id. “Despite being on a limited cellular network, the delivery was flawless, and it enabled us to offer a rich, discoverable and personalised proposition to our viewers.”

TV2U chairman, Nick Fitzgerald, added: “Whereas OTT delivery was once highly challenging, expensive to deploy and full of complexity, IVAN-X makes it possible for content owners to cost-efficiently engage with any user at lightening quick speed, and will power new and exciting revenue streams for operators and content providers.”
