VIVOplay & Octoshape team up for new Hispanic OTT service

VIVOplay, a Hispanic OTT (Over-The-Top) television provider, have announced that they have selected Octoshape, an industry leader in cloud-based streaming technology, to deliver the highest quality content in the market to Spanish speaking consumers across the globe.

Under this partnership, VIVOplay will introduce HD quality OTT IPTV service to consumers in various phases. During the first phase, VIVOplay will focus on Latin consumers across North America and Europe. The second phase will expand the offering across the rest of the globe. The VIVOplay service leverages both Octoshape’s patented video acceleration network Infinite HD-M and Fuugo user interface and content management platform for multi-screen devices from Axel Technologies.

“When selecting a partner for this initiative, we required the most robust and powerful solution to ensure a full HD experience over multiple devices, and across various network conditions,” said Carlos Hulett, CEO of VIVOplay. “Octoshape enables a differentiated service that positions VIVOplay as a driving force in the fast growing OTT market. The service is now generating huge anticipation in the Hispanic consumer vertical in the USA and Europe.”

Octoshape’s technologies are adopted by many of the largest broadcasters and technology providers in the world enabling them with TV Everywhere and OTT IPTV services at the highest possible quality. The Infinite HD-M platform outperforms traditional content delivery technologies on all marks including global reach, startup time, buffer time, quality and view time.

“The VIVOplay service is about to redefine how consumers around the world gain access to high quality content from back home,” says Michael Koehn Milland, CEO of Octoshape. “Our core value proposition lies in the ability to watch content across devices, anywhere in the world while achieving a superior viewing experience.”
