Bitmovin, a world leader in online video technology, announced that the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) is using the Bitmovin Encoder to speed content preparation and maximise quality for selected live and UHD content on Catch Up TV and Video on Demand (VOD) services.

The Bitmovin solution enables the broadcaster to make live shows from the BBC’s TV channels available rapidly on satellite provider set-top boxes (STBs), so flagship programmes can be seen soon after the time of broadcast.
