CommScope and US-based video cloud provider Kaltura are partnering to deliver cloud-TV offerings to communications service providers and media companies worldwide. The integrated solutions will leverage the power of Amazon Web Services (AWS) to provide a streamlined cloud platform – from planning to delivery, deployment and implementation, and ongoing growth – for customers launching large-scale cloud-TV services.
The global partnership will incorporate Kaltura’s TV content management platform and other cloud solutions into best-of-breed video solutions. CommScope’s Professional Services team will provide consulting, project management, systems integration, and custom software development to implement the solutions in operator networks.
“As operators around the world look to solidify their place in the new TV landscape, our proven TV platform powers their TV transformation journey, and enables them to enjoy the best of pay-TV and OTT in a single cloud-TV solution,” said Gideon Gilboa, Executive Vice President of Product, Marketing and Solutions at Kaltura.
“Kaltura was one of the first vendors to launch a global cloud-TV platform on AWS. Having a proven cloud infrastructure is essential for offering the key benefits telcos migrating to the cloud expect, such as high availability SLA, agility and scalability.
“Working on AWS allows us to serve tens of millions of monthly active cloud-TV users on a single platform,” said Gilboa.
Kaltura and CommScope are offering a wide range of products with multiple synergies that can be delivered to joint prospects, including Kaltura’s market-leading cloud-TV platform complemented by CommScope’s video processing, targeted advertising, digital rights management products, set-top boxes, streamers, smart media devices and Personal Channels engine.
“This is an exciting partnership that combines the best of our complementary leadership in cloud and video delivery,” said Kevin Keefe, Senior Vice President and Segment Leader, Broadband Networks, CommScope. “Our on-premises and cloud-based software-defined solutions will help our customers make the customised and seamless transition to becoming cloud-TV providers.”
