Challenge

Sappa partnered with Magine Pro to create a TV everywhere OTT solution that delivers live, catch-up and VOD content to over 50,000 existing Sappa broadband and TV customers in Sweden.

Solution

  • Create a Sappa branded OTT service for multiscreen devices (web, iOS, Android) on Magine Pro’s proven platform.
  • Leverage Magine Pro’s Media Pipeline and multivariate DRM platform to securely ingest, transcode and protect 37 linear Sappa channels.
  • Enable rewind functionality for live video where timeshift rights exist, and up to seven days catch-up on content where rights are applicable.
  • Securely ingest VOD content via CMORE and Viasat that Sappa have secured rights to distribute.
  • Ingest and integrate Sappa’s metadata into the Magine Pro Console, giving Sappa back-end control to edit and manage metadata and enforce content rights.
  • Integrate with Sappa’s CRM and subscriber data, enabling a frictionless login and user experience for Sappa’s existing customers, including the option to upgrade viewing packages.
  • Leverage Magine Pro’s CDN provisioning network and distribution infrastructure to ensure high-quality and low-latency video streams 24/7 to all requesting devices.
  • With Magine Pro’s solution for Server Side Ad Insertion, Sappa can now offer broadcasters a feature that is well prepared for the growing demand of targeted advertising.
