Conviva + EchoStar Technologies L.L.C.—Packing In Metrics + Analytics (SatBroadcasting™)

[SatNews] Conviva has signed an agreement with EchoStar Technologies L.L.C., a wholly owned subsidiary of EchoStar Corporation for their Intelligent Control Platform, which will provide the most comprehensive real-time quality and audience metrics available through its analytics offering, Insights.

The contract will also introduce video optimization with Conviva Precision, providing the control to deliver a consistent high-quality experience in an unpredictable Internet environment.  EchoStar is a global provider of satellite operations and video delivery solutions and is the primary technology partner for DISH Network L.L.C. EchoStar provides best in class, end-to-end, cross platform IP-Video delivery services to millions of customers each day. Through this agreement, Conviva’s Intelligent Control Platform will ensure high-quality streaming delivery for EchoStar’s IP-based offerings, DISH Anywhere™ and DishWorld.

DISH Anywhere provides complimentary access to programming online, live and on demand, to DISH subscribers. DishWorld provides premier international programming exclusively online. Both offerings will also use Conviva’s Viewer Module—a per-viewer, per-viewing-session look into a subscriber’s experience to improve quality and provide more efficient customer service.

“Conviva’s robust platform delivers several key applications that allow us to optimize the quality of experience for DISH Internet TV services across all devices, providing granular, real-time analytics and preemptive optimization,” said EchoStar Senior Vice President of Engineering Jeff McSchooler. “We strive to give DISH subscribers a streaming experience with little interruption and the highest picture quality possible. The visibility and control Conviva provides is critical to that ongoing endeavor.”

“We will provide the powerful combination of video analytics and optimization that is delivered by Conviva’s Intelligent Control Platform,” said Conviva CEO Hui Zhang. “We will be an essential element of the overall technology strategy and a key provider for delivering the best overall viewing experience for the growing subscriber base for Internet TV services.”
