German live streaming solutions provider Code One is now available in the Middle East. Dubai-based distributor Advanced Media Trading is in talks with the company to distribute their products exclusively in the region.
The Arab market has a requirement for high security data transfer products, Alaa Al Rantisi, Managing Director of Advanced Media Trading told BroadcastPro ME.
“We are constantly in search of new ideas and technologies to bring to the region. One of the new areas of growth is the transfer of large amounts of data. With the media expanding, there is greater need to send data within the media and Code One meets that requirement,” he stated.
Although Advanced Media is already a distributor of Teradek solutions in the market, the company clarifies that the two products do not compete but complement each other.
“Teradek already caters to a large segment of the market but with safety of transmission and better quality monitoring and reliability becoming increasingly important, we felt there was a need for more solutions. There are also several low-end and mid-level solutions in the region but with Code One we will have access to very sophisticated solutions.”
CodeOnes CEO Sven Hanten and Consultant Michael Erkelenz had come to Dubai last month to meet with customers and offer specialised training on the products at Advanced Media.
Speaking about the market requirement, Erkelenz said: “Todays broadcast workflows require transferring large amounts of data from one point to another. We provide solutions to combine these technologies into one system.”
Code Ones solutions include many features to transmit real-time audio video to specified points in the network through IP delivery.
“We conducted pre-tests between Germany and Dubai to transmit HD videos and directly streamed HD on devices, which was successful. Generation two of the product is based on a very new technology and we are demonstrating it around the world.”
Sven Hanten, CEO of Code One added that public broadcasters in Germany have already deployed the Code One technology.
“Every time you send data over the internet you need protocol. We have developed our own reliable protocol called Code One Transfer Protocol (COTP). It is a very robust and reliable system. Any errors during transmission can be handled easily through this system. This is an ongoing research and we plan to introduce a lot more features in the future,” he added.
Advanced Medias CEO Kaveh Farnam added: “We are excited about the future. This technology holds promise for us. The challenge, however, is that it is a new technology and for us at Advanced Media, it opens a door to a new market.”
