Multicast ABR and low-latency streaming are the starting gun for migration to an all-HTTP video future – Videonet

In an ideal world, all Pay TV operators would transition from legacy broadcast or classic IPTV to all-ABR delivery so they can unify their delivery infrastructure. That is what Jacques Le Mancq, CEO of Broadpeak, suggested in April when his company announced the latest version of its nanoCDN multicast ABR solution, which enables live streaming channels to be multicast across a broadband network but then converted to unicast sessions in the customer premise so any multiscreen device can consume them without changes to its software. He believes there is a natural roadmap towards what he calls the mutualisation of operations around HTTP-ABR video, and he is not alone.
