Simplestream, innovators in live and on-demand OTT services, today announced that its future-proofed, multiscreen, end-to-end white-label streaming solution VOD-in-a-Box has won a TVTechGlobal IBC Best of Show award. The company’s Cloud TV Platform also received a “highly commended” honour for the ‘Best cloud or virtualisation innovation’ at the CSI Awards – solidifying Simplestream’s position as a true innovator in deploying next-generation OTT services for entertainment, sports, music and news providers of any size.
The IBC Best of Show – which was presented by TVTechGlobal at IBC 2017 – was awarded to Simplestream by a panel of industry experts, honouring innovation and outstanding product development over the past year.
Dan Finch, Chief Commercial Officer at Simplestream said, “We are over the moon to have won a prestigious IBC Best of Show award, and to have received a highly commended recognition at the CSI Awards – especially among such an impressive list of innovators, services and projects. Thanks to our team’s hard work, passion and unwavering effort, these two new solutions enable content providers to deliver high quality and diverse video services to consumers in any territory, cost effectively and at scale. We congratulate and salute all the other winners and finalists!”
Unveiled at IBC 2017, VOD-in-a-Box packages and delivers video-on-demand services – typically in 6 to 12 weeks – for broadcasters and content owners who need to roll out content in a single territory or internationally. Companies can quickly, easily and cost-effectively ‘test the market’ using existing video content with low exposure to commercial risk and flexible commercial terms. The solution includes support for all OTT platforms, and a range of monetisation options – allowing any combination of subscriptions (SVOD), advertising (AVOD) and pay-per-view and other transactional models (TVOD).
