France Télévisions has selected Arkena’s technical platform to optimise its OTT catch-up offer known as francetv pluzz.
The catch-up TV service is already available across several boxes, connected screens and the internet. The broadcaster was looking to optimuse the management of the content to make them more quickly available to viewers.
Arkena set up a fully automated solution, taking on the media transcoding, audio, subtitles and video treatments before the delivery through a CDN.
“We want to offer our viewers a large diversity of content. Thus, we needed a partner capable of handling each month a high volume of media to target different platforms,” explained Stéphane Van Bosterhaudt, CTO of France Télévisions Editions Numériques.
Previously France Télévisions Distribution has adopted the Arkena service.
