The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) is the world’s largest and oldest national broadcaster.
The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) is using the Bitmovin Encoder to speed content preparation and maximise quality for selected live and UHD content on Catch Up TV and Video on Demand (VOD) services. The Bitmovin solution enables the broadcaster to make live shows from the BBC’s TV channels available rapidly on satellite provider set-top boxes (STBs), so flagship programmes can be seen soon after the time of broadcast. The solution is also being used in ultra-high definition (UHD) and High Dynamic Range (HDR) trials. This includes Dynasties on the broadcaster’s on-demand service, which was available via hundreds of Smart TVs and cable provider set-top boxes.
