MediaKind has been selected by Vodafone Qatar to deliver MediaFirst, its next generation cloud-based multiscreen TV Platform service, to consumers in Qatar.
This MediaFirst deployment will provide Vodafone Qatar with the capability and flexibility to launch new content over existing IPTV or OTT devices. The deployment of the new TV platform is due to commence before year end.
Vodafone Qatar’s customers will be able to enjoy a full range of compelling user experiences that are consistent across all devices, with access to online and offline video content. The platform will be deployed based on a continuous engagement model where a partner owns and develops the full solution ecosystem, enabling the delivery of rich features such as immersive content, universal search, rich metadata and advanced personalisation, all within a single pay-TV subscription.
Diego Camberos, Chief Operating Officer, Vodafone Qatar, says: “By partnering with MediaKind, we have access to a next generation cloud-based multiscreen media platform that enables our customers to watch all their favourite content whenever they want and on the device they prefer.”
Damien Montessuit, Senior Vice President, EMEA, MediaKind, says: “Our heritage in building, integrating and supporting media platforms with global and regional expertise, enables rapid time-to-market with high quality operator grade service.”
