E-Vision selects Synamedia’s Infinite Platform to launch game-changing multi-tenant OTT service across MENA

CES — Synamedia today announced that E-Vision, a subsidiary of Etisalat Group, has selected the Infinite platform, powered by Synamedia’s video network technologies, for its new multi-country, multi-tenant OTT service. The platform is already live in Egypt and will launch soon in Saudi Arabia. Additional markets will follow in due course.

E-Vision’s new, fully managed, multi-tenant cloud-based service provides operators in the MENA region and Pakistan with a state-of-the-art platform to launch and run multi-screen, multi-language OTT services quickly and cost-effectively. It complements E-Vision’s existing robust content and channel licensing business, which spans Hollywood studios, Bollywood and regional Arabic productions as well as over 550+ TV channels.

E-Vision currently offers telcos, ISPs, and other OTT providers a comprehensive, secure and cost-efficient turnkey OTT platform for linear TV and VOD services. The cost of infrastructure, innovation, video processing, monitoring, software integrations, software lifecycles and analytics is shared across all service providers using the service, providing E-vision’s customers with a predictable cost base linked to revenue growth.

E-Vision’s customers can easily customize the Infinite UI to give each service its own distinct look and feel. The platform includes cloud DVR and supports advanced content aggregation, search and recommendations for a highly personalized user experience proven to drive viewer engagement. Additional supported features include pay-TV, SVOD and AVOD business models and the pre-integrated Evergent Revenue and Customer Lifecycle Management platform for comprehensive subscriber management and frictionless billing.

By selecting Synamedia as the end-to-end provider, E-Vision has also deployed market-leading video network technologies including private CDN platform. The complete glass-to-glass video network portfolio is capable of continually reducing latencies at every stage of the workflow – from the encoding through to the CDN and player – ensuring that E-Vision’s growing roster of OTT customers can provide a highly reliable, massively scalable, high-quality viewing experience with no buffering.

“We have worked closely with Synamedia’s talented teams to develop and roll out E-Vision’s new multi-tenant OTT comprehensive service. The Infinite platform is secure and capable of a full end-to-end solution which would guarantee our clients a top-notch, scalable and cost-efficient service,” said Humaid Rashid Sahoo, E-Vision CEO.

“With its new multi-tenant OTT service, E-Vision is pioneering a new approach to OTT services – one that we believe is the shape of things to come. With such intense competition in the OTT space, a shared video platform makes sense for many operators. Using our scalable, highly reliable, cloud-based platform, E-Vision liberates its OTT customers from worrying about the underlying technology and lets them focus instead on building a sustainable, profitable business faster,” added Yves Padrines, Synamedia CEO.
