Doğuş launches OTT service with Harmonic
October 2, 2013
Harmonic, the specialist in video delivery infrastructure, has announced that Doğuş Media Group (DMG) has chosen a comprehensive multiscreen solution from Harmonic to power TVYO, its new OTT platform.
Harmonic’s ProMedia suite of multiscreen production and preparation applications, WFS file-based workflow engine, and MediaGrid shared storage systems provide TVYO with the performance, reliability, and scalability to deliver high-quality streams of 12 on-air broadcast channels, including live, VoD, and catch-up TV content, to any consumer device. Since its launch, TVYO.com and its mobile apps have become the leading all-in-one VoD service platform in Turkey, registering 5 million unique monthly visitors, more than 1 million downloaded mobile apps, and more than 150 million viewed videos.
“Consumer demand for OTT multiscreen content is increasing every day. Therefore, the key to launching our new TVYO service was finding a reliable integrated video solution that delivers high-quality output and that can seamlessly scale to support additional live channels and VoD content,” said Alp Öcal, director at Tvyo, DMG. “Harmonic provides us the most reliable and scalable solution for transcoding, packaging, recording, and storage. Within three short months of launching the TVYO platform, we’ve already added four more channels, increasing our viewer satisfaction and revenue streams.”
