Gazprom Media has announced the successful completion of the transfer of the Premier OTT service from a Huawei platform to its own infrastructure.
In a statement, it says that the process was seamless and did not affect the availability of the service to users. Commenting on the development, Alexander Zharov, CEO of the holding, said: “The media industry around the world – and Russia is no exception – is one of the fastest growing, and the creative plans of Premier creative teams have traditionally been ahead of the market.
“The moment has come when any external platform ceases to satisfy the increased requirements of the service and its customers for flexibility, functionality and speed”.
Svetlana Balanova, first deputy general director of Gazprom Media, added: “Transferring the service from the Huawei video platform required the hard work of all the technical team specialists.
“Now the resources of engineers, programmers and testing experts at Uma.Tech are finally fully available to solve the problems of improving the user experience. I’m sure our viewers will notice and appreciate these positive changes and new features of Premier”.
After migration from the Huawei platform, the Premier service is now based on its own software solutions and the Uma.Media video platform.
Uma.Media is a product of Uma.Tech, one of the largest content delivery networks in Russia and an accredited organisation operating in the field of information technology since December 2018.
