February 15, 2019
Streamroot, a provider of distributed delivery for OTT video, has been selected by France Télévisions, the French national public television broadcaster, to power VoD and live video delivery for its online video platform.
Offering both original and curated international, national and regional content that ranges from 24/7 news to films, series and TV shows, France Télévisions operates six national TV channels: Franceinfo, France 2, France 3, France 4, France 5 and France Ô. In 2017, it uncovered its new, highly acclaimed digital platform, france.tv, providing users direct access to a wide selection of live and on-demand content.
“As a forward-thinking and innovative media group, we turned to mesh network delivery technology to ensure high quality on our platform now and into the future. When choosing a vendor, we sought out a solution that was extremely lightweight on viewer devices and had a proven track record across all user platforms,” explains Stéphane Van Bosterhaudt, CTO at France Télévisions Digital. “We found exactly that with Streamroot, and are therefore pleased to continue strengthening our partnership.”
“We are delighted to join forces with France Télévisions, which has been a long-time supporter of Streamroot,” adds Streamroot CEO and Co-Founder, Pierre-Louis Theron. “Furthermore, winning yet another global public tender for peer-to-peer video CDN solutions reinforces Streamroot’s position as the world’s leading provider of distributed delivery technology.”
