“It’s a truly exciting time for Anevia following the acquisition of Keepixo. With the recent addition of CMAF for ultra-low-latency, content aware encoding and Virtualisation, Keepixo products are amongst the best solutions for OTT encoding and are a perfect match with Anevia’s existing portfolio.” said Damien Lucas, CTO and co-founder, Anevia.
