Stofa Selects VisualOn, Inc to Manage and Deliver High-Quality Service for its Over-The-Top Deployments Across Multiple Platforms

VisualOn, Inc. announced Stofa has selected the company to provide its WebTV OTT Player with the ability to manage QOS on end-point devices using its VisualOn OnStream® Analytics software. Stofa provides a broad selection of television and pay-TV offerings, high-speed broadband, and telephone services to its customers. Some 475,000 households are connected to its IP backbone out of 600,000 customer homes. The two companies have been working together since December 2014 when Stofa selected VisualOn to power its streaming media application, WebTV. Since then, Stofa has continued to expand on the service by adding more platforms and offerings. The WebTV OTT Player enables Stofa's cable users to view a complete mirror of channels and interactive possibilities of the STB solution, both in and outside of the home. By extending VisualOn's OnStream® Analytics, Stofa can access in-depth information on the player's performance and viewing experience. The information not only helps to identify problems with the device but also with the CDN, enabling Stofa to take proactive measures by performing device calibration and directly addressing problems in the CDN to improve customer satisfaction. Stofa's customers can now enjoy high-quality, live TV streams and recorded shows on all connected Web, iOS, and Android devices, anywhere and at any time. VisualOn is a market-proven multimedia software company, constantly ranked as one of the top 100 companies that matter the most in online video as declared by Streaming Media Magazine.

VisualOn, Inc. Powers NAVER Corporation's Media Application Naver Player Used in LINE TV Services

VisualOn Inc. has announced that the company is powering NAVER Corporation's media application Naver Player used in LINE TV services. Naver Player enables NAVER's various live broadcasts and VOD videos to be viewed on iOS and Android devices with higher stability, quality, and scalability than the built-in device video player. The Naver Player also contains a list view of all live broadcasts of popular sports, news, and games. Additionally, their one-touch simple notification function enables users to be notified before an event, and the audio mode can be used to only listen to audio broadcast.

VisualOn Inc. Announces Expansion of its Platform Coverage

VisualOn Inc. announced that the company is expanding its platform coverage. VisualOn's OnStream® MediaPlayer+ will now support additional platforms and operating systems (OS), such as: Android TV, Android M, iOS9, Windows 10/IE11, and Windows Phone. Additionally, OnStream MediaPlayer+ offers the unique solution for Google Chrome PPAPI. VisualOn's OnStream MediaPlayer+ (OSMP+) is a market-proven platform that currently powers global premier Over-The-Top (OTT) and TV-Everywhere (TVE) brands. With this platform expansion, OTT and TVE service providers can now support high-quality streaming to millions of old and new device end-points and enable their customers to view content on any connected device; mobile or tablet, TV or desktop etc. OSMP+ uses cross-platform technology that overcomes the challenges of device and service fragmentation that OTT and TVE operators face. VisualOn has been working on a solution to support Google's Pepper Plug-in API (PPAPI) on the Chrome browser since Google announced the discontinuation of NPAPI support in September 2013. VisualOn's unique PPAPI plug-in approach and solution, enables premium content providers to deliver their services to Chrome browsers without service interruptions, while continuing to use existing DRM technology. This solution is available for preview now and will begin shipping in fall 2015. VisualOn will continue to keep pace as the various browsers make updates. VisualOn's support for other browsers-platform combinations will continue based on current support model. Besides support for Android 2.x, 3.x, 4.x and 5.x versions on mobile phones and tablets, OSMP+ now supports Android TV in set top box as well as in TV form. Operators now have a ready-made solution for extending their reach to these Android TV devices. Apple's new iOS9 and Google Android's M operating systems updates are slated for general release sometime in September 2015. VisualOn has been porting and testing OSMP+ on iOS9 and Android M preview versions and will have a release ready to coincide with the iOS9 and Android M updates. With an increase in demand for support of Windows Phone devices specifically by European sports media broadcasters and sport related OTT and TVE service operators, VisualOn has now extended the support for this device platform. OnStream MediaPlayer+ with support for Windows phone devices is available now.
