Alpha Networks, a leading provider of software solutions for global video distribution, is thrilled to announce its partnership with Bitmovin, a pioneer in video streaming infrastructure. This collaboration aims to integrate Bitmovin's advanced Live Streaming solution seamlessly into Alpha Networks' PaaS and SaaS products, Gecko and Bee, and into the modular video software, Tucano.

Recognizing the increasing demand for empowering customers with advanced features for managing and monetizing live events, Alpha Networks is committed to offering broadcasters, media group, telecom operators and content creators a seamless customer experience.

Live events have become an essential component of content distribution strategies, and Alpha Networks aims to ensure its customers not only stay ahead of the competition but also differentiate themselves with a best-in-class solution.

Bitmovin’s Live Encoder, built upon the award-winning filed-based Bitmovin VOD Encoder, delivers high-quality video and audio outputs on a platform that has been built with a focus on resilience and reliability. Currently, Bitmovin’s Live Encoder allows customers to launch thousands of live channels or events in multiple cloud vendors globally at any time, with content owners able to distribute across multiple CDNs. Additionally, the CPU-based nature of Bitmovin’s Live Encoder means it is built to scale at speed in cloud environments to support high concurrency. Moreover, it is one of the most resilient live encoders on the market, delivering rapid start-up times, perfect for ad-hoc live events or DR solutions, and its highly resilient recovery on input loss, dual inputs, and distributed architecture.

These advantages align perfectly with Alpha Networks' products, including the Gecko and Bee platforms, as well as the modular software Tucano. Already a proven, recognized, and robust solution for content aggregation, metadata enrichment, and content monetization, Tucano now includes Live Events as a valuable addition to this solution.

Live streaming is a key feature in today's digital landscape, extending beyond sports entities and broadcasters to attract a wide range of customers. At Alpha Networks, we are dedicated to delivering best-in-class products and solutions to ensure the ultimate user experience. Our partnership with Bitmovin for the Live Events feature will significantly enhance the value of our offerings to our customers and end-users.
