London, UK, 9th September 2019– Open Broadcast Systems and PROLANE have collaborated to deliver IP video across the Middle East.

Through its partnership with Open Broadcast Systems, PROLANE has deployed a linux-based platform, STREAMLANE, for IP video delivery. It supports the RIST protocol and includes playout as well as encoders and decoders. Using this platform, PROLANE is now able to deliver video signal captured from its client and deliver it to any destination desired, including to telco partners.

Open Broadcast Systems encoders and decoders enable the delivery of high quality, low-latency broadcast services, running as apps on standard IT hardware. Solutions can be built to spec or simply and cost-efficiently embedded into existing infrastructure.

PROLANE is a broadcast service company based in the Middle East. Thanks to this partnership, it has been able to expand its offering to provide a number of video services, including playout, ingest, and video connectivity such as contribution and distribution over IP.

Maroon Khalil, PROLANE, commented: “With Open Broadcast Systems’ technology expertise, coupled with RIST protocol, we are able to offer our customers a way to deliver video extremely cost effectively without sacrificing on quality, reliability, and stability. This would simply not be possible in the same way without RIST that is able to effectively navigate differing levels of internet connectivity.”

Kieran Kunhya, Managing Director, Open Broadcast Systems, added: “The RIST protocol offers a simple yet highly effective method for interchanging professional signals between different vendors. For PROLANE, that means it is able to deliver video across the region, even when internet signal quality varies.”

Open Broadcast Systems will be demonstrating its encoders and decoders on its booth (7.A49) at IBC from 13th to 17th September. For more information or to book a meeting, please visit the IBC event page on the Open Broadcast Systems website.
