Carrier-grade video streaming and ad tech supplier Velocix has announced that its content delivery network (CDN) and recording management (VRM) software has been deployed by MEO, a consumer brand of Altice Portugal, to expand its Apple TV and Android TV based video services.
MEO, Portugal’s largest pay TV provider by market share, provides internet, video, telephony, and mobile services to more than 6 million homes and businesses in the region.
In addition to boosting the capacity of its video streaming network with Velocix’s field-proven CDN platform, MEO launched Velocix’s new software as a service recording management platform, VRM, to transition time-shifted TV recording workflows into cloud-based technologies.
Miguel Jardim, Head of TV Services, Engineering Network at MEO, said: “We needed to expand our streaming network and advance our recording architecture to keep pace with robust subscriber demand for our OTT TV services based on Apple TV and Android TV, along with mobile devices. Velocix’s technology is reliable, flexible, and cloud-ready, which is critically important to us as we grow and evolve our business.”
Anthony Berkeley, CEO at Velocix, added: “We are delighted to extend our successful relationship with MEO, and excited that our cloud-ready software solutions are helping to bring next-generation video services to consumers across Portugal.”
