It has already been deployed in Spain and Italy, and the process takes as little as seven months in a new country.
Commenting on the development, Ron Yekutiel, Kaltura co-founder, chairman and CEO, Kaltura, said: “What an honour it is to continue our long-standing partnership with Vodafone, and to see how Vodafone TV is now scaling to support all the TV requirements of new markets around the world.
“Our shared vision with Vodafone for aggregating all the linear, VOD and OTT content consumers want into a unified and personalised TV experience across all screens is coming to life.”
Wolfgang Zeller, head of video centre of excellence at Vodafone, added: “Vodafone TV is proving that by combining the reliability, security and scalability of pay-TV together with the agility, economics and functionality of OTT, telcos can launch competitive Cloud TV services at scale. We wanted to be first out of the blocks with a new genre of cloud-based TV service that could be easily and cost-effectively replicated and launched in new Vodafone markets.
“With Kaltura we were able to launch a next generation Cloud TV solution that was fast to market, more cost effective and most importantly increased our subscribers’ NPS. We are continuously impressed by how Kaltura’s technology, expertise and Cloud TV track record accelerate our joint vision for the future of TV.”
