Chunghwa Telecom is planning a trial of a 4K streaming service.
The Taiwanese operator will be using Broadpeak's server and CDN manager solutions, and HwaCom set-top boxes.
Chunghwa Telecom is looking to deliver 4K VOD and NVOD content, to a range of devices. VOD content will be unicast, while NVOD will be multicast.
"Streaming video content with a 4K resolution takes up a lot of data. Leveraging the HEVC standard, we're able to efficiently compress 4K content without losing any of the video quality, making it easier and more affordable to store and transmit," said JH Lin, deputy director, Multimedia Division, Chunghwa Telecom.
"We chose Broadpeak as our server and CDN manager solutions provider based on their extensive expertise in video delivery, innovative approach to technology in terms of supporting next-generation formats and standards like 4K and HEVC, and flexibility, which enables a quick deployment."
