“Video and advertising are at the core of our business,” says Stefan Tieß, Product Manager for video and mobile at webedia Germany. “As mobile video continues to grow at a staggering rate, it was clear to us that that HTML5 shouldn’t be just a fallback option, but the core of the player, so we began to look for a more forward-looking, innovative video solution that excelled at delivering video and video ads seamlessly on any device. In Kaltura we found a fast and beautiful player that is not only truly mobile at heart but still gave us a vast choice in customization, both in functionality and infrastructure.”
