Witbe & NexStreaming Join Forces
PARIS -- Witbe, the next generation monitoring company, and NexStreaming, a leading provider of multiscreen media players, are announcing at IBC in Amsterdam this week, a partnership to offer OTT and Multiscreen video service providers a pre-integrated solution that enables rapid deployment of monitoring and analytics across all smartphone & tablets.
Leading service providers are widely integrating NexPlayer, NexStreaming's video player SDK, in their Android, iOS and Windows 8 applications. This makes video streaming services available on every device regardless of the terminal brand or OS version, using HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) or Microsoft Smooth Streaming. NexPlayer SDK can be made available with Witbe's analytics engine pre-integrated to accelerate applications' development and provide comprehensive metrics on the quality that each user experiences when watching online video. As before, NexPlayer player SDK is very easy to integrate into any application with customized user interface.
This low level integration allows the Witbe analytics engine to report over 50 metrics right out of the box to assess Quality of Experience (rebufferings, freeze time, etc.) and network issues (bitrates, throughput, etc.) together with device information (model, OS version, CPU, etc.). Service providers gain precise understanding of the quality they deliver in each specific user context to easily identify trends, usage patterns, origin of issues and act before customers complain, enforce service level agreements and optimize their delivery infrastructures.
