Switch Media Wins Contract to Provide Telekom Television with an OTT Service Using MediaHQ Lite

Switch Media, a world leader in online video technology, has announced it won the contract with Solomon Telekom Company Limited (STCL) to provide an online streaming service for its free-to-air television network, Telekom Television (TTV). Recently launched, the offering, which utilises Switch Media’s MediaHQ Lite online video platform, provides subscribers with a two-channel service that is available online across multiple devices including Chromecast streaming technology.

The recent completion of an undersea cable between Australia, the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea has significantly increased connectivity, creating new technology opportunities for communities on these islands. The new over-the-top (OTT) service will provide a combination of free-access and subscription, with subscribers receiving unlimited data via their ISP. Billing is carried out via mobile phones and users will have the opportunity to purchase vouchers to access the service from local retailers.

Using MediaHQ Lite, TTV have a cost-effective, fast-to-market online video solution that enables them to push content to the market quickly and inexpensively. MediaHQ Lite is a best-of-breed solution that allows content providers to extend their reach, free up operational resources and adapt to the changing OTT landscape and consumer expectations. This means an OTT service can be launched quickly and easily without any kind of customisation other than adapting to the company’s own branding. MediaHQ Lite includes a pathway to enhanced monitisation, such as a full-featured dynamic ad insertion (DAI) integration allowing uncompromised addressable ad experiences.

Robertson Szetu, Chief Commercial Officer, Telekom Television says, “The undersea cable has opened the doors for our communities to access high-speed services. Our new OTT offering gives greater access to viewers looking for news, sports and entertainment programs across a variety of devices, 24/7.”

“This is a really exciting project that allows us to collaborate with one of our closest neighbours to provide an online video platform that can be accessed by all,” explains Luke Durham, CTO, Switch Media. We have worked with TTV in the past and we’re delighted that they selected us to provide this great new OTT service.”

MediaHQ Lite features include secure VOD and live streaming with DRM, a global CDN service, real time analytics reports, comprehensive metadata, high definition ABR encoding, dynamic ad-insertion and a range of ready-to-go applications across every screen.
