Vimond to power RiksTV’s OTT
July 30, 2012
Vimond Media Solutions has revealed that RiksTV, the largest DTT operator in Norway, will deploy the Vimond Media Platform and associated Vimond Professional Services to distribute on-demand content to Norwegian audiences over the Internet as a supplement to regular DTT transmissions. The RiksTV service will mark the first time a DTT operator can deliver OTT content in Norway, and it will allow the operator to catch up to other cable and satellite TV operators that already offer OTT content.
RiksTV will launch a hybrid DTT- and OTT-capable set-top box to deliver high-quality supplementary content over the Internet and will use the Vimond Media Platform to manage the complex workflows for distributing live and on-demand content. Vimond Professional Services will also be provided to integrate and support the platform.
