Kudelski Group's Nagra has announced that its multiscreen solution Nagra MediaLive is enabling over one million devices to access Yomvi, a milestone which marks a 182% growth in usage of the Spanish over-the-top (OTT) service in the past year.
The Canal+ service streams premium live and on-demand content over the Internet to hybrid set-top boxes, PCs, game consoles, connected TVs, as well tablets and smartphones, and is among Spain's most used OTT and video-on-demand (VOD) platforms.
"We are pleased to witness the fast growing usage of the Yomvi service by our subscribers since its launch in 2011," said Guillermo Mercader, general manager of Canal+ Yomvi. "Our vision that a successful multiscreen TV offering must provide access to our best channels and programmes is confirmed by the growth we experienced over the last year. It also brings us closer to our goal of delivering our service to our entire subscriber base."
"The success of the Yomvi multiscreen service is a clear indication that consumers appreciate the value and convenience of multiscreen TV," said Jean-Michel Puiatti, senior VP of Nagra's multiscreen unit. "It also shows that bringing premium, broadcast quality, live and on-demand content to multiple devices requires a powerful TV-centric end-to-end solution that meets content owner security requirements, reaches a broad range of devices and scales to support a large number of users – and this is what MediaLive provides."
The platform is secured by Nagra MediaAccess content protection technologies, key components of the NAGRA MediaLive solution, ensuring the delivery of premium content to every screen.
