Simplestream enhances VOD in a Box


Offline viewing and Chromecast integration have been added to on-demand services based on Simplestream's VOD in a Box technology.

These features have now been rolled out for use by History Hit TV, NextUp Comedy and Marquee – all services that were designed, built and launched by Simplestream in the last year – and were rolled out at no additional cost to the customers.

Simplestream says that today’s fast-evolving mediascape has propelled the high expectations consumers have for quality viewing experiences – anytime, anywhere and on any device, so that Simplestream now provides Chromecast receiver apps, the flexibility to adjust download bitrates and custom retention periods; with complete video and audio download support on mobile- and tablet-supported OTT services.

Lewis Arthur, Chief Product Officer, Simplestream said:
“TV is more immersive, interactive and personalised than ever before, so it’s imperative to make sure our customers are equipped with the best tools and features to provide enhanced viewing experiences for their subscribers. The growth of mobile video is an exciting opportunity for our industry, driving increased investment and fueling consumption. Offline viewing capability and Chromecast integration are valuable differentiators to any OTT service, and help content owners and service providers remain competitive.”
