Based on the Siemens OTT video platform, SUPER RTL has launched a multiscreen video service that aims to meet the needs of both children and their parents. Kividoo is available on web browsers and with apps for iPhones and iPads as well as Android-based mobile devices.
SUPER RTL has chosen OTT video solutions provider, Siemens Convergence Creators, as its prime technology partner. Kividoo is based on Siemens OTT SWIPE, a turnkey solution for multiscreen TV and video distribution. It has been designed for OTT multiscreen video streaming and enables personalised video consumption across all brands, operating systems, and devices.

We are very proud that SUPER RTL has chosen Siemens Convergence Creators as technology partner and our OTT video platform as a basis for their innovative multiscreen service.”
