With its partnership with a leading design agency Baby Steps, dotstudioPRO has developed a world-class UI/UX framework for dPRO FAST Engine. The framework comes with front-end components and an elegant easy-to-use EPG template with SDKs available on all OTT devices to help accelerate application development. This framework enables developers to focus on front-end user experiences rather than wrestling with complex back-end APIs directly. Truly the heavy lifting has been done to launch features and components that are now basic requirements for any streaming service.
“Our deep experience crafting consumer-focused FAST products is super-charged by the dPRO FAST Engine. We have collaborated closely with dotstudioPRO in designing a best-in-class UI/UX framework, resulting in a well-branded, familiar, frictionless experience for all consumers. dotstudioPRO’s CMS and APIs are purpose-built with strategic flexibility in mind, setting the foundation for an incredible, unique, engaging experience for each and every client and consumer.” – Adam Babkes & Mike Mintz, Owners of Baby Steps
“Together with Baby Steps, we are on a fast-paced track with the development of cutting-edge innovation for the FAST video streaming industry,” said Joe Pascual, Co-Founder, and CTO, dotstudioPRO. “In the recent past, many solutions rightly focused on tools for the content rights holder to create and distribute their branded channels. Now we believe that with our framework, more companies like Local Now and Sports.TV, both currently leading the pack in sports channels (as sighted in a Variety article, on July 27, 2022), will be able to compete and succeed in the direct-to-consumer aggregation business,” Pascual continues.
