Vodafone Deutschland taps Velocix for GigaTV rollout

Vodafone Deutschland has turned to video streaming and ad tech supplier Velocix to support the expansion of its GigaTV service as part of a multi-year agreement for its open audio-video (AV) pipeline software, including its CDN, origin server, and video personalisation platform.

Vodafone Deutschland, which provides pay TV services to more than 13 million subscribers and operates Germany’s largest cable TV network, is using Velocix’s software to extend its cloud-based TV platform, GigaTV, across acquired video networks in Germany to unify its services under a single brand.

The company’s open AV pipeline technology delivers the best viewing experience for our customers, while supporting our evolution towards cloud-based content delivery architectures.”

Anthony Berkeley, CEO at Velocix, said: “We are delighted to expand our work with Vodafone and showcase the capabilities of our cloud-native, carrier-grade video technologies. Vodafone is a true innovator in the global entertainment space, and we are thrilled to support the company’s exciting vision for the future.”
