Liberty Global, the international cable operator, has selected KIT digital, a cloud-based software solutions and technology services provider, to design, build and host the platform driving its new IP-based VoD and live streaming service.
The Horizon online service will see the creation of an ecosystem that provides a single and flexible, multi-lingual, multi-tenant, and multi-currency platform that can be rolled out across all of Liberty Global’s worldwide subsidiaries. Scheduled to go live later this year, the service will initially be available to subscribers in the Netherlands and then rolled out to other countries in Liberty Global’s footprint. The service provides subscribers with the flexibility to access video content on multiple devices anywhere there is a broadband connection.
The solution provides an open platform that allows for integration to the multiple operating countries’ existing Operations Support System/Business Support System platforms, as well as the flexibility to create a customised user experience based on local country requirements and devices.
