March 6, 2014
Piksel, a global provider of video monetisation software and services, has been commissioned by VRT, Belgium’s national public television broadcaster, to deliver a an OTT solution. The project will allow VRT to satisfy the growing need for VoD catch-up and live content on multiple devices.
Specifically, a customised syndication end-to-end solution, based on Piksel’s video content management system (VCMS), will be developed for VRT. The service will automatically deliver catch-up programming to viewers and to other external distributors (e.g. Telco operators), allowing them to reach a wider audience.
“This is a very important project for VRT, and one that takes our business to the forefront of technology in this industry. During the selection process it was important for us to choose a company who had consistently shown quality in the solutions proposed, reliability in their capabilities, deep knowledge of the space and innovation in their thinking. The Piksel team came out on top on all accounts and we’re very excited to work on this project with them,” said Tom Caljon, Project Manager at VRT.
