The Deutsche Telekom Business Development and Innovation unit (BDI) and premium content services provider Vubiquity are partnering to enable a comprehensive solution for operators and service providers looking to launch multiscreen video services.
Vubiquity will provide all content-related services for the Deutsche Telekom VideoRise solution. The modular-based, end-to-end platform combines the components needed to manage and deliver a premium Over-the-Top (OTT) content service.
The VideoRise platform, packaged with Vubiquity’s content services, is designed to enable operators to launch multiplatform video services more quickly and easily at lower operating costs. Providers can choose which elements of the platform to use and the technology can be integrated into existing systems. The service will allow end-users to view premium movie content, popular TV series and library content on their TVs and all mobile devices.
Karim El-Khazen, Vice President of Business Development and Innovation (BDI) at Deutsche Telekom, said the partnership would provide operators with outstanding content and further enhanced its service offering. “Thanks to our extensive experience in serving telco operators and service providers, we at Deutsche Telekom know that an end-to-end consultative approach, modularity, speed of delivery and premium content are the keys to success. One of BDI’s competencies is to bring together all required partners to get the best offering for our customers.”
Adam Poulter, Vubiquity Executive Vice President and Managing Director for EMEA and LATAM, said: “We are delighted to be working with Deutsche Telekom and the potential for future growth this brings to both our companies. There is a growing demand for multiscreen video solutions that can be tailored for individual service providers. This partnership means that, together, Deutsche Telekom Business Development and Innovation and Vubiquity can offer a complete service to operators and service providers, including content and all required technology.”
