ViewLift monitors Quality of Experience with Bitmovin

The two companies have entered a multi-year partnership that will enable ViewLift customers to access Bitmovin's capabilities in order to maximise the viewing experience

OTT solutions company ViewLift is integrating Bitmovin’s cloud-based video streaming infrastructure solutions into its infrastructure in order to help it elevate the standard of viewing experiences on OTT platforms worldwide.

The two companies have entered a multi-year partnership that will enable ViewLift customers to access Bitmovin’s capabilities in order to maximise the viewing experience.

Bitmovin’s encoding solutions include the Bitmovin Next-Generation VoD Encoder, which has multi-codec streaming, 8K and multi-HDR support, and its Live Event Encoder.

According to the companies, these capabilities will enable ViewLift customers to employ cloud encoding in order to scale video pipelines efficiently and intelligently optimise adaptive bit rate (ABR) ladders to lower content delivery network (CDN) costs without sacrificing video quality.

Bitmovin Analytics, Bitmovin’s Stream Lab, an automated device testing solution and the Bitmovin Player will also be integrated with ViewLift’s OTT Platform, allowing uses to test, deploy and optimise video playback.

Commenting on the partnership, Manik Bambha, president of ViewLift, said, “Partnering with Bitmovin is a win-win for both of us. But the ultimate winners in this partnership are our customers and their viewers. Our joint capabilities are poised to provide them with an unrivalled OTT viewing experience.

“At a time when streaming quality is critical to viewer acquisition and retention and can make or break OTT businesses, our combined technology advantage will allow content owners to step up their game. Bitmovin’s hyper-efficient codecs, cloud-based encoding, and intelligently optimised adaptive bitrate optimised encoding ladders combined with ViewLift’s end-to-end content distribution and monetisation solutions are a game-changer in the OTT space.”

Stefan Lederer, CEO and co-founder of Bitmovin, added, “In today’s fiercely competitive video streaming market, quality of experience is vital for viewer retention. Teaming up with ViewLift means we will power the best viewing experiences and accelerate how quickly customers get to market and monetise their offerings so they can remain one step ahead of competitors.”
