RRsat Partners With Kaltura @ IBC2014...A Convergence Of Content Management + Content Distribution (SatBroadcasting™)

[SatNews] This service allows content owners and publishers to prepare, manage and deliver content to any network, in any format, on any device.

RRsat Global Communications Network Ltd. (NASDAQ: RRST), a provider of digital content management and global content distribution services to the broadcasting industry, announces it will showcase at IBC in Amsterdam its  converged service solution for broadcast and online video.

RRsat has partnered with Kaltura, a leading video technology company,  to showcase this end-to-end offering and will incorporate its latest technologies including front- and back-end applications.

As viewers habits and experiences are changing rapidly, opportunity exists to monetize the same content over a variety of screens in many different models. A unified and efficient way of preparing, managing and distributing content is therefore required in order to effectively support viewer demand in a cost-effective manner.

RRsat’s converged service offering provides a fully managed, end-to-end solution, allowing broadcasters and content owners to focus on new and creative ways of producing engaging content, as well as generating additional revenue. The demo incorporates RRsat’s playout solution and Kaltura’s market leading online video product, which engages viewers with highly personalized and social Live & VOD viewing experiences across any and all devices, and is supportive of a wide array of monetization options.

Ziv Mor, CTO of RRsat says, “Content workflows for all platforms became a complex task for content owners and broadcasters. As a leading media service provider we developed the infrastructure, skills and  capabilities to provide a hassle free solution, covering all services under a single roof via efficient workflows and integrated services.  Broadcasters and content owners can approach both traditional and online viewers via one single RRsat contact and we’ll do the rest.”

“We are seeing massive demand by broadcasters and content owners for an integrated solution that would include both content preparation and distribution, as well as online video features and capabilities,” said Ron Yekutiel, Kaltura Chairman and CEO. “We are very excited to partner with RRsat to offer together a best-of-breed end-to-end solution that address that demand.”
