SES chooses 3 Screen Solutions for Lucid OVP

LUCID OVP image 4TV software provider 3 Screen Solutions has been selected to provide development and integration services for Lucid OVP, the new turnkey multiscreen video platform developed by SES Platform Services.

Lucid OVP is designed to help broadcasters and content owners launch tailored online and OTT services.

SES Platform Services has developed a turnkey video content distribution and management solution as a managed platform whose aim is to help content providers and broadcasters roll out multiscreen services.

Key offerings in the end-to-end Lucid OVP package – which will be commercially available in Q4 2015 – are a customizable front end, multiscreen user interface as well as channel-specific iOS and Android apps, all developed by 3 Screen Solutions.

The components of the end-to-end solution have been designed to be modular, so that broadcasters which already have some parts of the ecosystem developed can select complementary elements in order to assemble a complete platform, according to 3 Screen Solutions.

“3 Screen Solutions have rapidly gained a reputation for the development of audience-engaging interfaces and apps. Their innovations will make a great contribution to LUCID OVP.Whether a broadcaster wants to deploy an online video strategy or is focusing primarily on OTT and optimising the enabling processes, we really believe we are bringing together an end-to-end solution for customers,” said Daniel Kiessling, senior manager solution management at SES Platform Services.

“Broadcasters will now be able to fast-track their online and OTT service launches thanks to this innovative all-in platform,” said Kai-Christian Borchers, Managing Director of 3 Screen Solutions.
