Video technology company Kaltura has partnered with video delivery infrastructure firm Harmonic to offer end-to-end, cloud-based video infrastructure that combines a virtual headend and a complete service delivery platform.
Aimed at both OTT and traditional broadcast service providers, Kaltura said that the fully managed solution makes it easy to roll out virtualised, cloud-based services featuring linear TV, VoD, catch-up, start-over and nPVR content using new business models. These models include subscriptions, pay-per-view and pay-per-service.
The partnership combines Kaltura’s OTT TV, content management, service delivery platform and user experience management with Harmonic’s VOS software-based media processing architecture, Electra XVM virtualised media processor and ProMedia Origin streaming video server.
“Providing new ways for OTT and broadcast service providers to monetise cloud-based content quickly and easily is at the core of what we do. Through this relationship with Harmonic, we can together help customers reap the benefits of cost-effective new cloud-based revenue models that will boost viewer engagement and build ARPU,” said Ron Yekutiel, chairman and CEO, Kaltura.
Shahar Bar, senior vice president, corporate development, Harmonic added: “This latest collaboration with Kaltura builds on our shared values and the great work we are doing together with clients. Our combined end-to-end video infrastructure makes it easy for broadcasters and service providers to adopt an affordable, managed service that lets them experiment with a wide range of new and emerging business models that will delight end users.”
