KIT Digital reveals Horizon role

TV software and services provider KIT Digital has announced that it designed and developed the delivery platform behind Liberty Global’s next generation Horizon service. The company is also providing managed services for the platform.

The Horizon TV platform has already launched in the Netherlands and will roll out in Switzerland by the end of the year and in Germany and Ireland early next year. KIT Digital said it was responsible for providing the overall design, implementation, end-to-end platform testing and managed services for Horizon.

Chris Butlin, KIT Digital’s vice-president of client services said, “This was a complex service to get to market as we went live with a number of business models and consumer experiences including subscription VOD, transactional VOD and linear VOD, across multiple devices, languages and currencies.  The Online Enterprise Service Platform, managed and run by KIT, provides extensibility and scale and will ensure that multiple Liberty Global properties around the globe will be able to quickly and successfully get new services, like integrated multiscreen, to market.”
