With IBC 2019 having ended, it’s essential in looking to the many fantastic and innovative media platforms that were showcased at the conference. One that stood out most notably was that of Verizon Media. At IBC 2019, Verizon media debuted Verizon Smartplay, the latest upgrade for its media platform.
Verizon Smartplay, also known as Stream Routing, is a Verizon Media platform that delivers video traffic over multiple content delivery networks (CDNs), which allows for quicker startup times and a rebuffering reduction. Verizon Smartplay uses Verizon Media’s server and client-side performance data from its global network and device distribution to dynamically deliver traffic.
