Kaltura, the video technology platform, has revealed that Swiss media company AZ Medien has chosen its video platform to power its online TV channels, news portals, and specialist online magazines.
The Kaltura platform has already gone live to support the company’s news portals (e.g. az Aargauer Zeitung, bz Basel, sz Solothurner Zeitung, ot Oltner Tagblatt), the online TV channels TeleZüri and Tele M1, and the cooking magazine www.wildeisen.ch; remaining digital channels/portals will follow suit over the next few weeks.
“We chose Kaltura because of its incredibly fast HTML5 player, as well as the platform’s flexibility and scalability. It took no time at all to integrate Kaltura’s platform into our various websites and we are already delivering a superior experience to consumers,” stated André Zeiger, Head of Product Management Special Interest-Sites at AZ Medien.
The videos on AZ Medien’s branded sites can be live streamed or viewed on demand on any device. The Kaltura platform also enables AZ Medien’s editors to curate the videos based on users’ viewing histories – for example, displaying ‘similar’ or ‘recommended’ content.
