OTT quality monitoring: Telestream partners with Firstlight Media

Cloud Solutions

Broadcasters and content creators need to migrate OTT operations from capex-heavy, hardware-based on-prem systems to reliable, cloud-native solutions to reap market and business advantages. Sportsnet, part of Rogers Sports & Media, has announced that it will be using the Firstlight Media platform as the technology foundation for its relaunched SN NOW sports streaming service.

The Telestream integration is helping Firstlight Media ensure the highest quality for live event streaming at a time when most cloud-based distribution solutions are still confined to VOD workflows. Firstlight Media has created a cloud-native Kubernetes microservices-based architecture that supports an agile and scalable end-to-end platform.
