The new Kaltura Content as a Service solution uses the Kaltura TV Platform as a hub for centralized video content management and distribution. Media companies already using the Kaltura TV Platform and looking to extend the reach of their OTT content beyond their direct to consumer distribution can now select to distribute “packaged” video and metadata securely and automatically to other OTT services with practically zero integration required on their side, thus increasing their content’s reach while keeping costs down.
Kaltura customer, KCP, the leading premium Korean content platform, delivers the largest collection of premium K-Drama content from the top Korean broadcasters KBS, MBC, SBS and other content partners to users worldwide. Now, using Kaltura Content-as-a-Service, KCP is seamlessly and securely distributing its content to a large OTT partner, reaching many millions of additional viewers worldwide. KCP is already seeing a boost of over 10 X in monthly streams and plans to add more distribution partners later this year.
The service also allows customers to granularly control which content is distributed and when, and includes detailed reports for accurate tracking and billing. Kaltura Content as a Service supports VOD content, linear channels and allows customers to create simulive channels with full EPG, and monetize content with ad-based or subscription models using the new service.
