Paris – Witbe, the next generation quality monitoring company, today announced that Sky Italia, IPTV leader in Italy, selected their Assets Publication Monitoring solution to secure their multi-screen VoD revenues
Over-the-Top revenues are highly dependent of the on-demand contents purchases. To meet their customers’ expectations for daily new VoD and catch-up contents to be read on their Tablets, PC, SmartTVs or STBs, content providers have to publish hundreds of new assets every day.
OTT services infrastructures based on CDNs introduce new types of risks for content providers. It is important to ensure that content published on CDNs servers is online, properly encoded in the different ABR technologies and not missing any part. Asset Publication issues can occur but if so, they must be detected immediately and corrected in a timely fashion to avoid customers complaints and losses in revenues.
