WP Pilot, the most popular online pay-TV platform (vMVPD) in Poland, is now available with VOD functionality.
A library of movies, series, entertainment programmes, sports games, and fairy tales for children, as well as live TV time-shifting, are being delivered by the Redge Media video streaming platform.
WP Pilot offers more than 100 TV channels and is available via its website and on the Android and iOS mobile platforms. It can also be received on connected TVs from LG and Samsung, and on the Android TV platform including Chromecast.
The deployment was based on Redge Media Service Delivery Platform powering applications for web browsers and connected TVs. On the side of Video Delivery Platform the range of services includes Encoders, Origin for VOD and Live with timeshifting, Multi-DRM and CDN to handle the traffic peaks.
Commenting on the development, Marcin Malicki, head of WP Pilot, said: “I must admit that we have been looking forward to finalising this project for a long time! Finally, our users will be able to watch their programmes from the TV schedule without checking the TV programme – not only where they want, how they want, but also when they want. It is now possible thanks to Redge Media technical excellence and its offer completeness”.
Przemyslaw Frasunek, member of the board at Redge Technologies, added: “Our cooperation with WP Pilot started in 2021. During our partnership, we have proven our technical excellence, as a result of which client has decided to expand the scope adding to our Multi-DRM and CDN services, Redge Media SDP and Redge Media VDP as a part of WP Pilot video streaming platform. Thanks to our comprehensive approach, we are able to develop video streaming projects of any scale, in any moment of its evolving process”.
