Verizon Media Partners With 24i for New OTT Streaming Service
24i is beginning a new partnership with Verizon Media, which has selected our Smart OTT and Backstage solutions as part of the Verizon Media Platform for OTT and streaming services.
24i aims to follow a ‘build once, deploy everywhere’ philosophy to remove this complexity. The company’s Backstage content management system now achieves this through enabling publishers to create apps for all additional target devices without writing a single line of code. Backstage eliminates the need for device-specific engineers, reducing the time to launch on new platforms and devices, a significant OPEX benefit. This new partnership means that Backstage enables media organization customers of the Verizon Media Platform to easily build and manage OTT apps that provide engaging experiences across all the most popular OTT devices, and do it at lightspeed.
Smart OTT is a turnkey video application development platform that allows content owners and broadcasters to provide consumers with an intuitive and engaging user interface for enjoying live and on demand video content.
The advanced cross-screen development framework and modular architecture of our Smart OTT solution gives customers of Verizon Media total confidence in delivering:
- Consistent user experience across all devices
- Flexibility to easily expand and customize functionality
- Integration with the Verizon Media Platform as well as with other members of the Verizon Media extensions program, such as Cleeng, which handles authentication, user management and entitlements, etc.
“We’re very pleased that our Backstage and Smart OTT solutions have been selected by Verizon Media to provide critical functionality in its OTT and streaming platform,” says Kjeld Beijer, Product marketing & Partnership at 24i. “We are also looking forward to discussing very soon how the first Verizon Media Platform customers are using our solutions to win in the face of increased complexity and today’s hyper-competitive streaming market. Together, Verizon Media and 24i enable consumers to access exciting OTT apps and services to meet their passion for OTT entertainment. And, we do it whatever device they’re using and wherever they happen to be.
