ipercast, the content management and delivery specialist, has announced a 90% reduction on its mobile video streaming prices. The new price does not exceed €0.35 per gigabyte, compared to common European market prices, which vary between €2 to €3 per gigabyte.
Anticipating an imminent market expansion of streaming video on mobile in Europe, ipercast has closely aligned its bandwidth tariffs for both web and mobile streaming. Unlike other online video platforms, ipercast has its own private content delivery network (CDN), allowing it to control bandwidth costs, and meet all the needs of all its customers quickly and effectively. Its delivery services are compatible with all types of mobile devices, including the iPhone and the new iPad.
ipercast now offers the most comprehensive range of services to deliver content to the mobile market. The offering covers all possible modes of distribution, from mobile streaming to videocalling, with content security and a content management system tool (CMS) to suit all mobile operating systems (iPhone, Android, Blackberry, Symbian and Windows).
Jean-Michel Laveissière, CEO of ipercast, commented: “We believe this is the right time to encourage movement in Europe by introducing competitive pricing. As specialists in IP video services we are now the only company to offer content owners and mobile operators a consistent end to end offering, covering the entire chain of media distribution on the three converging screens; web, TV and now mobile. We believe that digital video on the mobile is the future of consumer viewing and our capabilities allow brands to access and deliver these services with ease and for excellent value.”
