Liberty Latin America deploys Velocix’s video streaming platform across its market footprint

Velocix has announced a multi-country agreement with Liberty Latin America (LLA) to power the operator’s Android TV-based streaming services in South America, Central America, and the Caribbean.

LLA is one of the largest telecommunications operators serving these regions, with over 6 million customer relationships across product lines, spanning 20 consumer markets.

In connection with the contract, Velocix has already completed the deployment of its IP CDN, origin server, and recording management software in Puerto Rico, Panama, Costa Rica, and Chile. Additional market deployments are planned for 2021.

Ewam de Freitas, Vice President Product and Technology at LLA, said: “Launching a new IP video streaming platform represents a major investment for Liberty Latin America. We needed a solution that was proven to perform at scale and that would give us the flexibility to evolve our video services rapidly to meet the rising consumer interest in streaming video. We look forward to expanding Velocix’s platform into new markets in 2021 and bringing our premium entertainment experience to customers throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.”

Anthony Berkeley, Chief Executive Officer at Velocix, said: “We are delighted to have been selected by Liberty Latin America to introduce new IP video services across their footprint. Velocix’s best-in-class product portfolio will enable LLA to achieve their strategic goals and speed their time to market so they can extend their lead in the competitive video segment.”
