Econet went for a unified broadcast compliance, monitoring and analysis system from Mediaproxy to use for Kwesé TV. By using the Mediaproxy software, Kwesé TV could ensure delivery of its pay-TV service to its consumers in Ghana, Rwanda, Zambia and Kenya.
Mediaproxy’s LogServer, TSAnalyzer and Monwall infrastructure has been deployed at Econet’s headquarters in Johannesburg, South Africa, to provide high availability and full redundancy. Mediaproxy LogServer decodes and captures over 67 HEVC streams in HD and SD.the streams are then relayed to the Monwall client for real-time monitoring.
“We are very pleased to have been able to contribute to this innovative pay-TV service, the largest HEVC video service of its kind,” said Mark Horchler, SVP Marketing at Mediaproxy. “We look forward to continue working with Econet and Kwesé as they embark on their next phase of service expansion and market growth.”
“Assuring a quality service and viewing experience is a top priority for us,” said David Alpert, CTO at Econet Media. “For this reason, we chose Mediaproxy to ensure the highest level of service quality while being able to scale up our service in line with the strong growth in demand for Kwesé TV.”
Econet Media developed Kwesé TV as a satellite television brand and service for the African market, delivering sports and entertainment content.
