Belgian broadcaster Radio-télévision Belge de la Communauté Française (RTBF) has chosen Red Bee Media to power its recently updated Auvio OTT platform.
Red Bee is providing managed OTT services with live TV and radio, Audio on Demand (AoD), and Video on Demand (VoD) capabilities for Auvio. As a part of the project, it has partnered with UI and app development agency, Dotscreen.
Audio delivers 32 radio stations and 21 different TV channels to the French-speaking community in Belgium, reaching four million viewers. It also offers viewers up to 180 live events daily, and its growing library includes 270 000 audio and video assets.
Using Red Bee Media’s Software Development Kit (SDK), Dotscreen refreshed all Auvio user interfaces across end-user devices. The broadcaster said levels for the FIFA World Cup reached 8 million streamstarts, with peaks approaching 90,000 simultaneous viewers.
“Live streaming and top-quality video and audio content are at the core of our digital offering. With Red Bee Media, we achieved record-breaking audience levels on our streaming service during the 2022 FIFA World Cup,” said Cecile Gonfroid, technology director, RTBF.
“Red Bee Media’s proven broadcast-grade solution for live and on-demand streaming, combined with Dotscreen’s intuitive and user-centric front-end design proposition, perfectly aligned with what we were looking for. We’re excited to continue innovating and have the right partners to implement our vision.”
