BBright, the specialist in advanced video processing technologies, is delighted to announce the deployment of its contribution decoding solution within the Scandinavian company VIAPLAY group based in Sweden.

Capable of decoding up to 8 contribution streams on the same platform, of managing both AVC/H264 codecs but also HEVC and JPEG2000 up to Ultra High Definition, the BBright decoding platform won over the ViaPlay group thanks to its ease of use and also its ability to support on a same high density platform TS/ASI inputs and SDI/2110 outputs. Already a leader on the Ultra HD contribution market, BBright decoding platforms are now being deployed in HD environments with their unequaled density at this level performance and strong mastery of the latest IP standards such as ST-2110.

We were able to easily deploy the BBright solution: you plug it in and it works! We use it today to receive different flows from our European partners and thus feed our distribution platforms. And above all, with the support of ST- 2110 and UltraHD the solution fits right into our hybrid environment.”, says Martin Bergstrom, technical development manager at Viaplay.

In addition, Guillaume Arthuis, CEO of BBright, adds “We are delighted to work with Viaplay and thus be able to support them in their rapid development on the European continent. From the start, Viaplay was looking for maximum flexibility for receiving contribution streams, that’s what we were able to provide them.”
