In the run-up to IBC, video services provider Espial has announced a partnership with Harmonic, through which its Elevate Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) video platform will fully integrate with Harmonic’s VOS360 media processing SaaS solution.
The joint offering will allow control, processing, and delivery of video content and services to a broad range of devices – including set-top boxes, media players like Roku, Apple TV and Amazon Fire, and Smart TVs as well as mobile devices.
Espial’s Elevate platform provides operators with cloud tools for their operations, product, marketing, and engineering teams, with a view to enabling them to grow their revenues by reducing churn, addressing underserved markets, and opening up new revenue opportunities.
Hosted on leading public cloud infrastructure platforms, Harmonic’s VOS360 SaaS facilitates delivery of content from anywhere in the world.
The new integrated solution will allow video service providers to offer services ranging from app-based TV across a variety of consumer devices, to low-cost IP set-top offerings, to cable set-top based services.
