Date: 22/02/2018
Harmonic (NASDAQ: HLIT), the worldwide leader in OTT video delivery solutions, and Viaccess-Orca, a global leader providing OTT and TV platforms, content protection, and advanced data solutions, announced today that Global Technology Group, a leading telecommunications operator in Myanmar, is launching an OTT service called La La Kyi powered by Harmonic's VOS™ 360 media processing SaaS and Viaccess-Orca's TVaaS cloud-based TV platform. Designed to speed up the time to market for OTT services, the end-to-end, fully managed cloud-based TV service solution will enable Global Technology Group to deliver high-quality live and VOD content on any screen with unique user experience.
"Providing TV Everywhere services is becoming an absolute necessity for operators that want to stay competitive," said Prasert Laosaengpha, Chief Technology Officer at Global Technology Group. "We chose Harmonic and Viaccess-Orca's end-to-end managed cloud-based media service platform to reduce our infrastructure costs and allow us to move fast, in terms of getting our new OTT service off the ground and adding new features in the future. We're excited to offer subscribers a large portfolio of local content on TVs, smartphones, and tablets to compete with the major players."
Harmonic and Viaccess-Orca will manage Global Technology Group's media processing and distribution workflow via the cloud, ensuring increased business agility, scalability, and operational efficiency. With a fully managed and operated cloud-based video service delivery platform, Global Technology Group can optimize the monetization of its new OTT service, focusing on building an exclusive content library and marketing campaign.,
Since both Harmonic VOS 360 media processing SaaS and Viaccess-Orca's TVaaS offer a usage-based pricing model, no infrastructure will be required on-premises at Global Technology Group. Through the use of data and analytics, Viaccess-Orca's TVaaS platform will help drive better video experiences for the operator's OTT customers and also provide best-in-class security and extensive DRM support for any device. VOS 360 is highly scalable and elastic which allows Global Technology Group to support additional new services or peak events in the future and to instantaneously deploy them.
"The dynamic pay-TV industry, with an increasingly global audience, is asking for original and premium video content across all devices," said Tony Berthaud, Vice President of Sales, APAC, at Harmonic. "Software-as-a-service is the best approach for new players in the OTT environment because it provides workflow simplicity, a fast time to market, and a usage-based pricing model. We're thrilled to help Global Technology Group deliver live and on-demand content with superior video quality, ensuring an unrivalled user experience."
"This deployment further strengthens our OTT deployment expertise in the APAC region," said Chem Assayag, EVP Marketing and Sales at Viaccess-Orca. "Thanks to our solid partnership with Harmonic, the market leader in OTT video delivery, we're able to offer customers like Global Technology Group a comprehensive solution for service delivery that will enable monetization in the multiscreen environment right away."
