MediaKind updates MediaFirst platform

TV technology provider MediaKind has unveiled a number of developments to its MediaFirst TV platform.

The new enhancements include enriched content discovery, encompassing universal search, metadata, and personalisation. According to MediaKind, these new features incorporate several new dynamically generated promotional rows, including a premium streaming service integration within the discover feed. This enables operators to deliver what the company describes as a full pay TV experience with live, VOD, time-shifted content, restart TV and cloud DVR plus Multi-DRM, and packaging on the fly.

Consumers can also view and bookmark content on the go on any device with Chromecast, Download & Go. At the same time, MediaFirst’s multi-tenant capabilities facilitate shared infrastructure costs and optimized operations.

Other new features of MediaFirst include a refreshed developer support programme for creation of customer-built clients and consumer experiences. It also includes voice technology, allowing users to navigate the live or VOD programming they want to watch. Users can now search for content by actor, genre, title, programme, or combinations via remote and smart speakers.

MediaFirst is now pre-integrated with Evergent’s CRM and billing platform.

Raul Aldrey, Chief Product Officer, MediaKind, said: “We are proud to roll out a host of competitive developments to our MediaFirst TV Platform and enable our broad, global customer base to create truly immersive consumer experiences. With the significant upgrades we’ve made recently to our cloud-native platform, our customers will be able to leverage the agility, scalability, and fast-to-market capabilities that MediaFirst offers.
