Courtroom coverage channel Law&Crime has partnered with live streaming provider Simplestream to enhance the network’s multiscreen service.
Simplestream will automate the channel’s Live2VOD workflow, complementing its live streaming, video hosting, video management, dynamic ad insertion and live clipping services.
Following recent expansion, Law&Crime is available across OTT platforms including Philo, Pluto, Xumo, TVPlayer, iOS, Android, tvOS and Amazon Fire.
Law&Crime CTO Juan Miguel Bassalik said: “As we continue to expand the breadth of our live trial coverage, leading commentary and rich analysis, it is critical for us to have the best technology in place, so we can give our viewers a top-quality viewing experience.
“Simplestream has given us all that we were looking for – the opportunity to generate new advertising revenue and reach more audiences on a wider range of platforms, while reducing the complexity of our workflow and providing us with an automated, streamlined solution.”
Simplestream CCO Dan Finch added: “Law&Crime is a unique content offering; it is the only service of its kind that gives viewers a window into the action-filled, dramatic world of crime, courtrooms and trials.
“It’s not surprising that such an engaging channel has so much viewer interest, so to harness and grow that interest, flexible and future-proofed technology is needed. This project showcases how our Live2VOD and syndication workflow can help leading content owners like Law&Crime keep pace with both the market and consumer demand.”
