NetByNet starts using VMP from VisualOn

Wednesday 11 September 2019 | 13:51 CET | News

Russian regional ISP NetByNet, a subsidiary of mobile operator Megafon, has started using VisualOn's VisualOn Media Platform (VMP). The deployment will enable NetByNet to seamlessly deliver video playback experiences for its Wifire service across all Android-enabled devices, including smartphones, smart TVs and set-top boxes.

NetByNet wanted to provide a 4K video to its base of Wifire customers, but many were using Android AOSP set-top boxes that did not support 4K H.265 HLS playback by default. Upgrading set-top boxes would be costly and inconvenient for customers. The company and VisualOn then engaged with set-top box manufacturer Sumavision and chipset provider Amlogic to develop systems to support firmware and overcome the limitations, so that the encoder could be reconfigured to supports 4K streaming.  

By using VisualOn’s player, NetByNet has been able to transition from Linux-based set-to-boxes to Android TV and AOSP, resulting in lower qualification costs, unified user experience across set-top boxes, easier support, and a lower cost for end customers.
