Kit Digital and Harmonic form strategic partnership17 October 2011
Kit Digital, the Prague-based company developing innovative solutions for multi-screen video management and delivery, has announced a strategic partnership with Harmonic, the global leader in video infrastructure and storage.
The two companies will work together to enable tier one video providers to expand their existing broadcast and pay TV services efficiently with new multi-platform, multi-device delivery models.
As well as creating one-stop technical infrastructures, the partnership is planning to offer a platform as a service model based on the broadcaster’s reliability and availability requirements, while handling the day to day workflows.
“As the lines between traditional broadcast and new media distribution channels blur, our clients are demanding an integrated, seamless and cost-effective solution,” said Scott Sahadi, chief strategy officer for Kit Digital. “Already clients have recognised the value and synergies of our combined offering.”
For Harmonic, Shara Bar added: “a strategic focus for service and content providers alike is to gain operational efficiency while extending service offerings for consumers. Harmonic’s video infrastructure and Kit Digital’s managed service platform deliver a high-quality, proven solution focused on operational efficiencies.”
