Digiflare Integrates Panthera Cache & Carry Into App Publishing Platform

TORONTO(17 Nov 2016)

Digiflare today announced the integration of powerful new features forVidea, its cloud-based video app publishing platform, to improve the viewer experience. Videa now supports Penthera’s universally compatible download-to-go software, which gives users the freedom to watch TV and movies within video apps, without the need for an internet connection.

“We partner with industry-leading infrastructure and software service companies, like Penthera, to support each of our customers’ unique needs, always delivering an improved mobile video experience,” said David George, Co-CEO at Digiflare.  “Because Wi-Fi and streaming aren’t always available, reliable or free, it’s essential to offer mobile download solutions in this highly competitive video ecosystem.” 

Penthera is the creator of industry-leading download-to-go software, Cache&Carry, which allows users to download movies and TV shows within video streaming apps to enjoy anytime, without relying on an internet connection. Cache&Carry is a fast, secure and reliable solution for download-to-go.

Penthera’s Fastplay feature enables mobile video app users to stream videos the instant they hit play, without the usual start-up buffering.  Fastplay relies on Penthera’s patented download technology to pre-position small segments of video on a user’s mobile device.  This eliminates the delay that frustrates users when they click the “play” button.

Both solutions will be pre-integrated into Videa, and content providers can opt to add on Penthera’s features as part of Digiflare’s Videa license.

“Digiflare provides a premier video app experience for some of the biggest content creators and video service providers in North America. We are always looking for partnerships that expand and improve the end user’s viewing experience: that’s why this integration with Digiflare makes so much sense,” said Michael Willner, CEO, Penthera.

Digiflare works with industry-leading video brands to deliver OTT and TV Everywhere apps that engage viewers across mobile, tablet, game console and connected TV screens.  

Videa plugs into existing video infrastructure to create an easy plug, create and play experience for content providers. Its dynamic user interface editor and content management system allow Digiflare to create custom, non-templated apps with rapid time to market.

By combining Digiflare’s Videa platform with Penthera’s mobile video software, content providers can scale across multiple brands and reach millions of users quickly without compromising the user experience. Viewers will also benefit from Penthera’s download-to-go capabilities that give them the freedom to enjoy content wherever and whenever they choose without the need for a high-speed connection.
