Bitmovin has designed Stream Lab to solve the issue of device fragmentation.
Bitmovin, a provider of video streaming infrastructure, will debut Stream Lab, its automated stream testing solution, at the 2022 NAB Show.
Bitmovin created Stream Lab to address the global challenge of device fragmentation and help companies support a larger number of devices and platforms while meeting rising consumer demand for superior quality video experiences on any screen. Stream Lab enables development teams to test their streams in real environments on physical devices and receive transparent reporting with clear performance feedback. With pre-set test cases created by Bitmovin’s video experts, it has given developers access to testing on older and newer generations of devices and platforms, including Samsung, LG, major web browsers and more.
Speaking about the new product, Stefan Lederer, CEO and Co-Founder of Bitmovin, said: “Stream Lab is an industry-first that has the power to shape the future of video. The sheer number of devices entering the market means there’s a real need for an automated testing solution for the video streaming industry. Stream Lab is a must-have solution, as it supports a wide range of physical devices and platforms spanning multiple generations, which streamlines the video delivery process and ensures the quality of playback on viewers’ screens.”
The company stated that Stream Lab guarantees ROI by saving companies time, money, and development resources while ensuring audiences have access to high-quality playback that provides the best viewer experience.
Lederer concluded: “The average household uses more than four devices, and viewers expect a consistent and high-quality experience on each one. New devices continue to come online while older ones remain in use. Solving the challenge of fragmentation is key to upholding integrity in any service offering and bolstering subscriber retention – two of the biggest challenges facing the industry right now.”
