Boosting quality of experience for Selevision’s subscribers globally
[17 January 2017]
Voddler Group, the cloud-streaming innovator, has been selected by Selevision, a leading technology and content provider in the Middle East, to optimise the subscriber’s streaming experience. Selevision provides broadcast and online channels direct to consumers under several brands from its bases in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, providing exceptional regional entertainment to its growing base.
To ensure a consistently high quality of experience for its users, Selevision is now adding Voddler’s hybrid peer-assisted and secure delivery to its global technology platform. Because Voddler’s technology scales limitlessly across all devices and bitrates, Selevision’s choice will bring its substantial catalogue to an even greater marketplace, while ensuring that its commitment to amazing user experience continues.
VoddlerNet™ combines controlled and secure peer-assisted delivery with direct streaming from the source provider. This unique hybrid peer-assisted video streaming solution greatly expands the reach of streaming video services, while maintaining the highest bitrate and quality of service possible.
“Providing the best possible viewing experience for the end user is vital to us, regardless of which of our entertainment services they are using and wherever they may be viewing from,” said Dr Raed Khusheim, CEO of Selevision. “To maintain our leading position, we are continually innovating behind the scenes. Voddler’s ability to offer broadcast quality content limitlessly offers real advantages in driving up the quality of experience.”
One of the particular challenges for OTT services in the Gulf region is the high demand for mobile consumption, with mobile penetration rates in Saudi Arabia exceeding 168%. While VoddlerNet provides service quality improvements across all networks, it has specific functionality which allows greater support even on mobile devices without impairing performance.”
“We are very excited to be partnering with Selevision,” said Adam Lewis, CEO of Voddler Group. “As a pre-eminent OTT provider in the MENA region, Selevision already reaches millions of viewers. We want to help them continue their growth while maintaining the quality and responsiveness for which the platform is famous. Expectations of technical quality as well as access to rich content are very high, and VoddlerNet enables Selevision to meet these expectations cost-effectively, without massive investment in edge servers and content delivery networks.”
