VisualOn Powers Playback for Connected-Device Ecosystem
The Sports Video Group is pleased to welcome VisualOn as a mobile/integrator sponsor.
Based in Santa Clara, CA, VisualOn develops multimedia software for the connected-device ecosystem and is committed to helping sports broadcasters enable superior playback on a wide range of devices, including iOS, Android, and other consumer devices.
VisualOn recently partnered with Cisco Systems to provide technology in some of its sports-related video offerings. VisualOn’s technology is also behind sports-league broadcasts to mobile devices.
In addition, the company’s solutions are used by the largest streaming-media providers, carriers, and cable operators to power device playback for consumers. VisualOn supplies the default audio and video codecs being shipped in more than 200 million devices, such as mobile handsets, tablets, desktop computers, set-top boxes, and smart TVs.
“We stand committed to supporting our customers and ensure quality playback experience across the connected-device ecosystem,” says CEO Yang Cai.
According to VisualOn, mobile is the medium of first consumption, with smartphones and tablets becoming the mainstream video-consumption devices for consumers. Device manufacturers and content providers alike are looking to capitalize on the growing mobile-video trend and are packing these devices with more processing power and higher-resolution screens.
The fragmentation caused by the need to support the vast array of protocols, file formats, CPUs, OS types, and form factors present major challenges for content delivery. To audiences with a compelling playback experience reach, content owners need a platform-agnostic solution that stands ready to support the rapidly increasing number of new devices coming to the market.
VisualOn’s technology takes the OS, device, protocol, file format, and form factor out of the equation for content playback across the fragmented device ecosystem.
