Liberty Global Selects SeaChange for Next-Generation Cloud-Based Video Offering
ACTON, Mass. — Video solutions innovator SeaChange International Inc. (NASDAQ:SEAC) today announced its Adrenalin multiscreen video solution has been selected as a key element of Liberty Global plc’s next-generation video platform supporting its Horizon 4 services.
Liberty Global, the world’s largest international TV and broadband company, provides video services to viewers across Europe, the Caribbean and Latin America. Deploying a common, fully virtualized video platform architecture for its Horizon services allows for a faster pace of service innovation and development.
The SeaChange Adrenalin software, running as part of Liberty Global’s video service platform, will provide the content information and transaction support for Liberty’s viewers across both broadcast and IP video delivery networks on Liberty’s latest Horizon set-top boxes (STBs). Adrenalin’s flexibility also supports each affiliate’s need to independently deploy and control their own multi-vendor platform and editorial catalogues, while at the same time gaining the operational efficiencies of shared, visualized resources.
“We are pleased to be chosen as a key contributor to Liberty Global’s next-generation video platform,” said Ed Terino, SeaChange’s CEO. “SeaChange’s Adrenalin video solution enables video delivery at the massive scale needed to support customers such as Liberty Global. As video platforms transition to virtualized cloud infrastructure and enable advanced capabilities such as replay TV and network DVR to multiple devices, SeaChange will continue to support customers like Liberty Global to monetize their video assets and modernize their video delivery platforms.”
Olivier Philippe, Vice President of Entertainment within Liberty Global stated, “We have had a long relationship with SeaChange as a key technology provider within our video ecosystem. As the industry continues to evolve its video platforms to support advanced consumer experiences that are truly device agnostic, we need solution providers who can provide a rich set of capabilities and stay relevant in those platform ecosystems. This helps us to continue to innovate and rapidly evolve our video services so that they truly resonate with our customers.”
“Our selection of SeaChange as a key part of our video platform reflects their continued development of leading video delivery technologies and their relentless commitment to operational excellence.”
