Kaltura, the video cloud, has announced today that SRG SSR, Switzerland’s national public broadcaster and the country’s largest media company, has selected Kaltura TV Platform as the basis on which to build its new multi-language Cloud TV service, branded ‘Play Suisse’.
Play Suisse will deliver content to viewers in Swiss-German, French, Italian and Rumantsch on a range of devices including connected TVs, smartphones and tablets. SRG SSR offers Switzerland’s largest programming catalogue, through original productions and licensed content. As a consequence, with its new Cloud TV service, viewers will be able to enjoy access to an extensive array of Swiss programming on-demand as well as popular third-party content.
SRG SSR will use the Kaltura TV Platform as the backbone of the new service.
“Broadcasters and media companies everywhere are quickly turning to Cloud TV as the engine of content distribution and the best way to reach their audiences wherever they may be,” said Nuno Sanches, General Manager, Media and Telecom at Kaltura. “We are proud to help SRG SSR with its Cloud TV transformation, particularly now when delivering engaging TV is more important than ever.”
