JW Player (JWP) is to release a new broadcaster solution that integrates 24/7 Live Channels and Studio DRM into the JWP video platform to enable broadcasters to stream videos (Live or VOD) with broadcast-grade performance.
The new capabilities come as a direct result of JWP’s recent acquisition of VUALTO, the live video streaming and DRM provider.
The solution will be on show for the first time at IBC 2022 Amsterdam.
“We’re excited to bring our new complete broadcaster solution to IBC this year. By encapsulating the full spectrum of our innovative technologies, we’re able to offer broadcasters the first complete video platform of its kind, reinforcing our commitment to our customers’ success,” said James Burt, SVP – Broadcast Products, JWP. “It is powerful enough to stream the world’s most popular events and shows to millions, yet simple enough for any broadcaster use case. Its impressive capabilities will allow broadcasters of any size to accelerate their video strategy and continue to grow their business.”
JWP’s live broadcasting technology combined with advertising and subscription-based monetization capabilities, allows broadcasters to benefit from reduced complexity and costs related to video management while enabling them to optimize revenue.
The platform also leverages JWP’s partnership with Applicaster to allow broadcasters to develop their own custom OTT apps. Together, these new capabilities provide broadcasters with the flexibility and extensibility to easily stream Live & VOD content to any device or platform.
