Bitmovin streamlines RTL Deutschland online platforms

July 30, 2018

Bitmovin, a global leader in online video technology, has announced that CBC is using Bitmovin’s HTML5 web player and SDKs across multiple web, mobile and online platforms of Mediengruppe RTL Deutschland to increase the reach of their content beyond TV screens.

Bitmovin’s Player provides CBC with a single solution for all platforms, reducing the time-consuming custom development for each web browser, Android or Apple device. Based on an API approach, Bitmovin’s Player also offers a number of features that can be selected and adjusted to its needs.

“Today’s consumers want to watch content not only on TV screens but also on mobile devices. We needed a solution that enables us to deliver a broadcast quality of experience for premium content and commercials, without compromising on content protection features,” said Andreas Schmeiler, Head of Software Development, Online Services at CBC. “Bitmovin’s feature-rich player provides the backbone to our custom video players, and saves us from major investment into building our own solutions.”

“Our mission is to solve complex video problems, and we have designed our player with compatibility and efficiency in mind. Compromising on quality of experience is not an option for online video, and we are proud that CBC made its decision for Bitmovin,” said Stefan Lederer, CEO at Bitmovin.
