Kaltura launches “Netflix-like” white-label platform

Online video platform provider Kaltura has launched a new white label OTT video portal called Kaltura MediaGo.

According to Kaltura, the “Netflix-like” video portal allows content owners to publish and monetise their content across multiple screens via subscription or advertising revenue. Kaltura says the portal is already being used by a number of media companies.

The portal includes support for paid subscriptions with customizable components, and support for PC, iOS and Android mobile devies and selected OTT and TV platforms. Built in features include browse search, related content, content galleries and playlists, adaptive HD playback, DRM, user account and subscription management, social TV features  and personalization features. Other elements provided by Kaltura include an international UI that supports different languages, ingest, transcoding, hosting and delivery, a video content management system, billing gateways and a CRM portal.

“Today’s viewers are light years ahead of where they were just a few years ago. They consume content from a variety of sources and on multiple devices, at home and on the go. Media companies are faced with the challenge and opportunity of adjusting to this new digital world,” said Ron Yekutiel, Kaltura chairman and CEO. “Working closely with some of the world’s leading media companies, Kaltura identified the need for an out-of-the-box media application that makes paid OTT delivery simple and seamless.”
