Video-on-Demand Provider TURKWEB Selects Erstream and Octoshape Infinite HD™ for Broadband-Delivered TV Services

Erstream, a Turkish-based media services provider, and Octoshape, an industry leader in cloud-based streaming technology, announced today that they have been chosen by TURKWEB, a leading provider of high definition premium content including movies and TV series, to provide broadband TV video-on-demand distribution services to customers globally. The services are provided through Erstream and powered by Octoshape Infinite HD™ stream acceleration.

“We are excited to work with Erstream and Octoshape, two major innovators in live and on-demand streaming video technology,” said Mert Altındağ, CEO at TURKWEB. “We are confident that the level of quality provided by this new initiative will motivate customers to watch more of our compelling content.”

The Infinite HD™ solution enables TURKWEB to provide a consistent, TV-quality, multiscreen video experience for broadband TV over unmanaged IP networks, thus expanding its reach inside Turkey, and beyond.

“When searching for a technology to satisfy the high expectations of TURKWEB customers, we knew that traditional HTTP-based technologies could not live up to the requirements of delivering video globally at a consistent quality level,” said Oguz Erginer, Marketing Director of Erstream. “Octoshape was the best and only choice.”

“TURKWEB is another great broadcaster in need of high quality video delivery over the Internet,” said Michael Koehn Milland, CEO of Octoshape. "Enabling this level of viewing experience is what drives extended consumer engagement time, and ultimately top line revenue for TURKWEB.”
