Anevia, a company offering video streaming and infrastructure solutions for OTT, live TV and video-on-demand (VOD), has announced that France Télévisions has chosen ViaMotion to power its new multiscreen platform.

The Francetv Pluzz portal in France gathers on-demand programming from five premium channels and nine overseas channels.

ViaMotion's architecture allows the broadcaster to gain full control over operations and content internally while easily supporting its multi-CDN ecosystem.

"We selected Anevia because of its wide range of functionalities onto the same platform," explained Alain Buzzacaro, CTO, France Télévisions. "ViaMotion's flexibility and scalability were equally important to us in the long run in order to innovate today, and also tomorrow: with ViaMotion on board, we can evolve our platform easily and launch new value-added services. With this implementation, we are one of the first broadcasters to offer added-valued services on our live streams like subtitles, audio description and multi-language support."
