MediaKind’s Aquila On-Demand solution has been selected by Telefonica to deliver rapid asset processing of Movistar+’s on-demand OTT and IPTV content, encompassing transcoding, transformation, packaging, and delivery capabilities.
The solution will enable Telefonica to add several new VoD offerings to the Movistar+ platform, supported by a range of Digital Rights Management (DRM) platforms, including HLS/Fairplay and DASH/CENC.
According to MediaKind, Movistar+ will also benefit from premium video quality up to 4K, enabled by its latest HEVC/H264 codec implementations.
Eugenio Lojo, head of transmission and conditional Access, Telefónica, said: “This past year has demonstrated the insatiable consumer demand for premium quality on-demand video streaming, a trend that will continue. We are continuously looking for new ways to pioneer and deliver the best quality service to our customers.
“MediaKind’s Aquila On-Demand solution provides us with the ideal tools to ensure Movistar+ provides a consistently exceptional viewing experience. The deployment means that Movistar+’s on-demand content can be made available faster and reach more devices, with an improved video and audio quality. Such a deployment is key to delivering a truly next-generation VoD experience that exceeds our viewers’ expectations.”
