Vualto chooses THEOplayer

January 15, 2015

Vualto, global specialists in content delivery and management, has signed an exclusive UK reseller agreement with Belgian company OpenTelly to incorporate THEOplayer into its video delivery solutions.

THEOplayer from OpenTelly is a fully HTML5 based player that allows a common streaming format, such as Apple’s HLS (HTTP live streaming), to play on a wide range of platforms, without the need for the device to have a plug-in, such as Flash or Silverlight, installed to interpret it. This means that HLS video and audio streams delivered using THEOplayer will play in all modern browsers across a wide range of devices including Desktops, Tablets and Mobiles running iOS, Android and Windows Phone. Similar support for MPEG-DASH is coming soon.

Alongside this, THEOplayer is hosted in the cloud meaning that suppliers do not need to download and install player-specific software on their servers.

Steven Tielemans, CEO of OpenTelly adds, “We are excited to be able to work together with an online video specialist like Vualto. This partnership supports our go-to-market strategy to team up with the best partners for delivering the best solution and customer experience. We are looking forward to working closely together with Vualto to successfully deliver our next generation of video playback solutions to broadcasters and content owners in the UK market.”
