The solution benefits from Kaltura’s advanced video technology and includes integration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) for delivery of live linear channels and CloudFront CDN.
Commenting on the development, Gal Goren, chief digital officer at Reshet 13, said: Viewing audiences today have very high expectations of video service quality, and we need to be ready to meet these requirements as they grow and evolve.
“Now, thanks to Kaltura, we have a flexible, future-ready video platform which will leverage the efficiencies enabled by cloud technology at scale.
“We very much appreciate that Kaltura delivered this big project so rapidly, and with no disruption for our viewers”.
Nuno Sanches, Kaltura general manager, media and telecom, added: “We are honoured that Reshet 13 chose Kaltura to power its D2C service, and is using our advanced video technology to stream some of Israel’s most popular TV shows.
“With its new advanced advertising technology and better understanding of viewership made possible through audience measurement and analytics, Reshet 13 has the opportunity to explore new commercial possibilities, get a greater understanding of content assets’ value and realise enhanced monetisation”.
Reshet 13 is one of the fastest growing broadcasters in Israel, reaching almost 6 million viewers and with 15% year-on-year ratings growth.
As part of project, Kaltura migrated over 170,000 content assets to the new platform.
