The Deutsche Telekom Business Development and Innovation unit (BDI) and content services provider Vubiquity have partnered to enable a solution for operators and service providers looking to launch multiscreen video services.
Vubiquity will provide all content-related services for Deutsche Telekom’s VideoRise, a platform that combines the components needed to manage and deliver a premium Over-the-Top (OTT) content service.
VideoRise, packaged with Vubiquity’s content services, will enable operators to launch multiplatform video services, choosing which elements of the platform to use and integrating the technology into their existing systems. The service will allow end-users to view content on their TVs and all mobile devices.
“Our partnership with Vubiquity will provide operators with outstanding content and further enhances our service offering,” said Karim El-Khazen, vice president of BDI at Deutsche Telekom. “Thanks to our extensive experience in serving telco operators and service providers, we at Deutsche Telekom know that an end-to-end consultative approach, modularity, speed of delivery and premium content are the keys to success. One of BDI’s competencies is to bring together all required partners to get the best offering for our customers.”
Adam Poulter, Vubiquity executive vice president and managing director for EMEA and LATAM, added: “We are delighted to be working with Deutsche Telekom and the potential for future growth this brings to both our companies. There is a growing demand for multiscreen video solutions that can be tailored for individual service providers. This partnership means that, together, Deutsche Telekom Business Development and Innovation and Vubiquity can offer a complete service to operators and service providers, including content and all required technology.”
