Kontiki, a leading provider of enterprise video solutions, has announced a partnership with top European video communications agency World Television. Instead of investing in costly hardware to optimise the delivery of high-quality enterprise video, World Television customers will now be able to use the Kontiki Enterprise Video Platform to make the most of their existing IT infrastructure in order to deliver high quality video content without negatively impacting business-critical network traffic.
With no hardware required and minimal set-up, Kontiki delivers video to all employees across a company's existing corporate network in a way that is network-efficient, low-cost, secure, highly scalable and quick-to-implement. World Television will offer the Kontiki solution as part of the enterprise video creation service it offers to its 450 global customers, providing them with the following benefits:
- Automatic delivery of video to a user's desktop, ready-to-play without impacting bandwidth
- Easy and efficient access to libraries of pre-recorded material, such as training videos or financial results that can be quickly cached to a user's desktop
- Corporate YouTube-style private streaming services
Used by the BBC in its original iPlayer service, and delivering video to more than one million employees in over 180 countries, the patented technology in Kontiki's Enterprise Content Delivery Network (ECDN), a core component of the the Kontiki Enterprise Video Platform, only requires one ‘copy' of a video stream or file to cross each wide area network (WAN). The combination of Kontiki's software agent and cloud-based server infrastructure will provide World Television customers with the ability to stream live and on-demand video to all employees, regardless of their location or device.
World Television's emphasis on superior production values calls for a CDN partner with the expertise to manage high-quality content delivery for end users. "Kontiki was a logical choice when selecting a partner to help us enhance our already-comprehensive portfolio of enterprise video solutions", remarked Steve Garvey, CEO and Chairman of World Television. "There would be no point in our clients paying for high-quality video if the content was unplayable when delivered to end users. Kontiki's cloud solution is the only one that allows us to deliver videos at their original quality while simultaneously keeping bandwidth impact to a minimum."
"Using Kontiki, businesses can fully embrace the power of enterprise video content to communicate and educate their workforces without being forced to make expensive and time-consuming changes to their existing infrastructure," said Dan Vetras, President and CEO of Kontiki. "World Television can focus on producing top quality video content that enables its customers to efficiently and cost-effectively share throughout their entire business."
