Overview: ONLINE VIDEO SERVICES
Our Online Video Services deliver your content to audiences anywhere, on any device.
Provided as an end-to-end managed service, Ericsson Online Video Services have been developed to meet the specific needs of broadcasters, content owners and telecom service providers.
Breaking Down Barriers to Entry for New Services
Two traditional barriers of entry to new OTT video services are capital expenditure and hosting requirements. Many online video products demand a fixed license fee upfront, requiring you to commit to volumes that can often be hard to forecast. In the face of this, it can also be a challenge to manage operational expenditure. The need for a flexible and predictable cost of the online video service arises.
Now that users want to access online video from across the globe, broadcasters can no longer rely on local service partners. The goal is to find a truly global partner, one capable of offering a multi-territory solution with a resource scale to drive cost-efficiencies and reach new markets.
Time to Market
The complexity of launching an online video service means that broadcasters and other service providers are frequently frustrated by a lengthy, and often costly, time to market. By choosing a modular online video platform delivered as a managed service, you can launch a custom-built branded online video service within months.
Efficient Content Delivery
Maintaining and improving the quality of content delivery can become a challenge considering network capacity or connectivity issues. To tackle these, telecoms have focused investments on building networks that can provide the best possible service to their subscribers. Broadcasters, on the other hand, can get stuck in the trap of having to rely on a single content delivery network (CDN) for their OTT service. Cost limitations mean media companies are not always in the position to offer high quality video experience that end users crave.
Online video delivery puts even greater power into the viewer’s hands to curate their own personal content schedule. The relationship between you and the viewer becomes even more intimate than the one that develops via linear consumption. Lucrative opportunities open up before you, not only for audience growth and retention, but also for generating incremental revenues through TVOD and SVOD services. You can now target specific market segments with much better accuracy.
