Media Excel, an innovator of adaptive bitrate, multi-device transcoding for multiscreen video delivery, sweeps the South Korean Telco industry by winning the large-scale multiscreen transcoding projects of the three largest Telcos in South Korea. Combined, SK Telecom, Korea Telecom, and LGU+ serve more than 20 million paid subscribers, compared to more than 18 million paid subscribers for Media Excel’s US customers.

The three Korean operators utilize Media Excel’s HERO platform to prepare, package and deliver more than 120 HD live channels over wired and 4G/LTE-wireless networks to all connected devices, ranging from smartphones and tablets to PCs and connected TVs.

Over the last nine months, SK Telecom, Korea Telecom and LGU+ individually performed extensive evaluation tests comparing solutions from all major encoding vendors. Each chose Media Excel’s HERO multi-screen encoding solution based on its reliability, scalability and extensive feature set.

“Given the coverage, depth and duration of the evaluations, these wins are a major endorsement of the HERO product line, as well as a testament to the responsiveness and commitment for which Media Excel’s Team has been recognized,” commented John Hotchkiss, COO, Media Excel. “Operators looking for a highly-available, large-scale, multiscreen transcoding solution appreciate the way HERO’s management system (HMS) assumes control, alleviating the complexity of their customers’ SLAs and the associated OPEX.”
