Vidmind adds catch-up and multiscreen TV
April 1, 2014
Israel’s Vidmind has partnered with Media Excel to deliver time-and-place shifting of linear TV channels as part of its turnkey hybrid OTT/DTT solution. Virtual operators can now utilise existing free-to air content and offer it to their audience to view at any time and across multiple connected devices – as part of a Prime TV experience.
Using Vidmind’s platform, mobile operators, ISPs and retailers can launch a Prime TV experience by combining free-to-air and premium OTT content, and deliver an alternative offering to traditional satellite and cable TV providers at a minimum investment in technology and content.
The solution transforms live DVB-T TV to linear OTT TV, with the permission of the content owners, and makes it available on a multitude of connected devices in real time as well as at different time through the Catch-Up service. The solution is deployed at the operator’s head-end or the Cloud and combines Vidmind’s platform flexibility and control with Media Excel’s HERO superior video quality and versatility.
