Telstra releases global digital media solutions

Telstra has added two cloud-based online video platforms to its global media portfolio – the Video Monetization Solution (VMS) and Online Video Solution (OVS) – designed to help professional and digital media organizations more effectively stream, deliver and distribute online video content, the company said.

Trevor Boal, Head of Telstra Broadcast Services, said the two solutions leverage industry-leading technology from Ooyala and strengthen Telstra´s professional and digital media portfolio, which includes global satellite and teleports services, Global Media Networks, SNG and miniature camera capabilities, supported from a state of the art Broadcast Operations Centre.

Boal said Telstra´s VMS is specifically designed for broadcasters, content owners and pay-TV operators, enabling them to deliver high quality video content with studio-grade protection, rights-management and flexible monetization models.

Boal said Telstra´s OVS – which was launched in Australia in 2015 and is now available to Telstra´s customers globally – is a high quality end to end video publishing solution suitable for enterprises and consumer brands looking to deliver tailored video content to capture larger audiences, increase viewer engagement and drive better revenue results.
