Multichannel broadcaster UKTV has extended its playout, video on-demand and access services contracts with Ericsson.
The new multi-year agreement means Ericsson will continue to deliver playout services for UKTV’s portfolio of 10 channels.
It will also continue to provide media management services for UKTV’s on-demand services including UKTV Play and deliver VOD content to other TV platforms and VOD aggregation services.
At the same time, Ericsson will migrate UKTV’s VOD preparation services to its end-to-end ‘Package and Deliver’ managed service, which is powered by Ericsson’s cloud media processing service platform.
Ericsson has additionally extended its access services contract with UKTV, which includes subtitling and audio description services across UKTV’s portfolio of content.
“We are delighted to be continuing our long-standing relationship with Ericsson and look forward to working closely with them as we develop new services to harness opportunities offered through IP and cloud-based service provision,” said UKTV director of technology and operations, Sinead Greenaway.
Thorsten Sauer, head of broadcast and media services, Ericsson added: “We look forward to strengthening our relationship further and helping UKTV to provide their audiences with the very best TV experience anytime, anywhere for years to come.”
