KIT digital, the cloud-based software solutions and technology services provider for multiscreen video delivery, has confirmed it is powering Telecom Argentina’s multiscreen OTT premium video service. The service, called Arnet Play, will initially roll out with more than 2,500 video titles, allowing Argentina’s largest telecom operator (part of the Telecom Italia Group) to offer premium entertainment content to its more than 1.5 million broadband subscribers.
Using the KIT Video Platform, KIT digital’s broadcast-grade and rights-protected OTT software platform, Arnet Play will allow Telecom Argentina’s subscriber base to access Hollywood, independent and locally-produced video content on demand on Web browsers and set-top boxes, with extensible access to other devices. The KIT Platform uses an advanced, HD-capable, http-based smooth streaming protocol and adapts dynamically to changing bandwidth conditions to provide the best user experience possible. The platform enables a variety of video content business models including subscription, single transaction, and advertising-supported VoD.
