Swiss broadcaster SRG SSR has selected Kaltura to deliver the basis of its new streaming platform, Play Suisse.
The broadcaster announced plans to launch Play Suisse last week.
Kaltura already works with SRG as technology partner to Swiss-TXT, SRG SSR’s subsidiary company.
According to Kaltura, Play Suisse will include several advanced capabilities that fit its specific needs. For example, the Kaltura Operator Console will enable SRG SSR to manage its content catalogue, metadata, multi-language translations and captions, “all in streamlined workflows that can be monitored and tracked to learn and improve the service as it evolves,” said Kaltura.
“Broadcasters and media companies everywhere are quickly turning to Cloud TV as the engine of content distribution and the best way to reach their audiences wherever they may be,” added Nuno Sanches, general manager, Media and Telecom at Kaltura. “We are proud to help SRG SSR with its Cloud TV transformation, particularly now when delivering engaging TV is more important than ever.”
Play Suisse is due to launch in November.
