Tulix and WiseDV power Hollywire’s CTV channel distribution on Samsung TV Plus in Canada, USA, Mexico, and Brazil

ATLANTA — Tulix (Atlanta, GA) and WiseDV (San Diego, CA) have joined forces to power Hollywire’s channel to be distributed on Samsung TV Plus plans throughout Canada, the United States, Mexico, and Brazil.

With easy, transparent, and scalable workflow, WiseDV and Tulix can now fulfill any requirements of Hollywire Connected TV and OTT Network. The channel origination is done by WiseDV’s cloud playout WisePlay – the most feature-rich FAST TV channel creation tool on the market today. Hollywire now has more features, graphics, and news crawl overlays than ever before, while the time needed to create the weekly schedules has decreased about 4-5 times. WisePlay also generates required continuously updating EPG.

On the delivery side, Tulix’s CDN sends WiseDV’s WiseCoder-generated HLS feed with three H.264 profiles for Samsung TV Plus in the USA and Mexico, while five HEVC (H.265) profiles for Samsung TV Plus in Brazil with specific frame-accurate SCTE-35 markers.

This partnership provides Hollywire with the opportunity for future expansion at a global scale.

For its part, Tulix is also utilizing its cloud infrastructure, failover networks, and CDN to send the streams to each international destination.

“Working with WiseDV to build the channel origination workflow for Hollywire has been a privilege,” says Tulix Co-Founder and Executive Vice President Nino Doijashvili. “WiseDV provides us with all of the sophisticated playout automation and AI tools that we need to create visually compelling OTT channels much more efficiently than any other platform we have seen. We’re looking forward to the future expansions of this project and even more opportunities to deliver new content to new audiences. We are excited to see what comes next for Hollywire, WiseDV, and Tulix.”
