Leading tech vendor Kaltura have teamed up video delivery specialist Harmonic to collaborate on an end-to-end video infrastructure that creates a holistic OTT TV platform that is delivered as a service (TV PaaS).
Aimed at both OTT and traditional broadcast service providers, the fully managed solution makes it easy to roll out virtualized, cloud-based services featuring linear TV, VOD, catch-up, start-over and nPVR content using new business models such as subscriptions, pay-per-view, pay-per-service and pay-per-dimension (recording space, household members, device quantities and stream concurrencies). The two companies have partnered previously on successful deployments with leading global media companies and operators.
Available now, the collaboration marries Kaltura’s OTT TV, content management, service delivery platform and user experience management with the Harmonic VOS software-based media processing architecture, Electra XVM virtualized media processor and ProMedia Origin streaming video server. The new solution will be on show at IBC 2014 on booths 3.C67 (Kaltura) and 1.B20 (Harmonic).
