Globecast taps Anevia for OTT

Media services provider Globecast has chosen technology provider Anevia to support its new over-the-top TV platform.

Globecast has tapped Anevia’s ViaMotion solutions suite – Packager, Origin and Edge – to provide OTT solutions to third-party providers.

According to Anevia, its ViaMotion Plus technology was chosen because it supports multiple transcoders and delivered scalability and support for formats including MPEG-DASH.

Globecast used the recent NAB Show to unveil its new OTT offering, encompassing live, VoD and catch-up programming.

Globecast has partnered with Akamai as its preferred CDN supplier, while Kaltura is supplying its online video platform and app technologies as well as providing the video management layer.

“Anevia precisely understood our OTT vision and it provided a comprehensive suite of solutions required to make it come true,” said Sonia Missul, OTT product manager at Globecast.

“With ViaMotion on board, we are now well positioned to deliver innovation to broadcasters and pay-TV operators for years to come without being hindered by performance limitations.”
