LEAF™

Hot on the heels of its recent reveal at the SMPTE conference, LEAF™ represents a new way to approach the challenges that have beset the transition from traditional video distribution to OTT streaming, until now.

By merging traditional OTT architecture and broadcast architecture, creating OTT Broadcast, LEAF™ is capable of turning a router into a streaming gateway for all connected devices in the home.

This small product could herald a viable solution to the legacy of out-dated STBs and spiraling demands on bandwidth.

Our partners

I have worked very closely with the team at mediathand for many years as a technology partner spanning three companies. I can definitely say that they are one of the thought leaders in streaming media. They are now pioneering a hybrid approach of OTT Broadcast that provides service integration across multi-channel distribution of content. With mediathand technology, television is now truly an App.
