Tuesday 5 January 2016 | 16:22 CET | News

Video technology provider Kaltura partnered with TV app developer 24iMedia to offer the SmartTemplate user interface as a new front end for its OTT TV platform. The integration of the SmartTemplate TV app with Kaltura’s OTT TV backend platform enables companies to launch a full multi-screen OTT service in a matter of weeks, Kaltura said. 

24i’s TV Everywhere interface includes templates that have been incorporated into Kaltura’s OTT TV platform. This allows companies to launch a uniform OTT user experience across multiple devices from the outset. Supporting live and on-demand content, the interface offers an intuitive dashboard for easy navigation, social sharing and personalised user profiles across smart TVs, tablets, mobiles and other connected devices.

Also, all future innovations on the Kaltura OTT TV roadmap will be supported on the TV app, meaning that customers can transition smoothly as new versions are released, with minimal time and investment.

Kaltura and 24i’s templates support smart TVs and lean STBs as well as game consoles, and even allow the service provider to cherry-pick specific platforms to use for their various audiences, based on territory and other criteria. The templates also incorporate Kaltura’s engaging viewer experience.

Kaltura will demonstrate the integration of 24i Media’s TV Everywhere interface with its backend platform at CES in Las Vegas.
