Austrian TV service provider ORS has chosen the InsysPLAY platform from Swiss video integration company Insys Video Technologies to support an enhanced OTT video service of its subsidiary simpliTV.
The InsysPLAY platform provides simpliTV viewers with a richer, distinctive user experience and expanded selection of content across a broader range of consumer devices, according to Insys Video Technologies.
simpliTV previously offered its customers basic live streaming of just eight channels only available on iOS and Android devices. With the new simpliTV OTT service, viewers can watch over 40 live channels from multiple providers on a wide array of platforms, from tablets and mobile phones to TV sets and web browsers, complemented by features such as catch-up TV, network PVR, pause/resume across multiple devices and content recommendations.
For the simpliTV project, Insys supplied a complete OTT solution including back-end and front-end application software, server hardware, Dell EMC storage systems and eight instances of the AWS Elemental Delta video delivery platform. The new simpliTV service went live in April 2018.
“The incredible flexibility of the InsysPLAY platform enables us to put a variety of ever-evolving business models into operation for the future,” said Michael Zettl, Head of Product Management at simpliTV. “The user-tested, easily distinguishable and modern interface design provided by InsysPLAY ensures that the value offered by the simpliTV service is easily accessible to our subscribers.”
