In 2017, consumers are increasingly relying on videos to engage with branded content. This forces marketers to adopt video platforms that offer highest quality and flexibility across devices. To help marketers engage audiences with next-gen video marketing solutions, Encompass takes their partnership with Kaltura to a new level. This time, they will serve Here Media.
“Content will continue to be king – broadcast and streaming companies need to ensure that they are delivering their valuable product to each and every platform where viewers are consuming video today,” said Chris Walters, Encompass CEO.
Encompass Digital Media announced that it has expanded its partnership with Kaltura, the leading Over-the-Top (OTT) platform provider to deliver an integrated set of services for Here Media, a niche social media content platform. Through its global partnership with Kaltura, Encompass will offer channel play-out and MVPD distribution relationship for the clients.
“Our OTT viewers can access all of the content that they want, wherever they want, with the same quality and reliability they’ve come to expect and deserve. We believe this will strengthen our relationship with our viewers.” – Here Media
