French SVOD Salto has partnered with Nomalab for the provisioning of its acquired content.
Salto, the joint venture of France Télévisions, M6 and TF1, launched in late 2020 with over 10,000 hours of content. The ambitious streamer recently hit 200,000 subscribers in France, though it has struggled to grow due to a lack of ISP distribution agreements.
However, things could have been much worse for the streamer ahead of launch, Nomalab has revealed. Salto, it said, had to provision thousands of hours of acquired content “in just a few weeks prior to its launch.”
Nomalab provided Salto with this service with few technical constraints, with the vendor enabling the SVOD to receive programmes with subtitles, in any format; play and assess incoming content immediately upon delivery; easily identify subtitles requiring fixing; trigger the generation and delivery of mezzanine files to their streaming service provider Bedrock;
select and create extracts for marketing and promotion; and interoperate seamlessly with their traffic and rights management systems.
All of this was achieved via the Nomalab web UI using nothing more than a web browser which could be accessed on site or remotely.
