Kaltura has partnered with TV app developer 24i Media to offer the SmartTemplate user interface as a new front end for its OTT TV platform.

24i’s TV everywhere interface includes templates that have been incorporated into Kaltura’s OTT TV platform. This allows companies to launch a uniform over-the-top (OTT) user experience across multiple devices. Supporting live and on-demand content, the interface offers an intuitive dashboard for easy navigation, social sharing and personalised user profiles across smart TVs, tablets, mobiles and other connected devices.

Also, all future innovations on the Kaltura OTT TV roadmap will be supported on the TV app as well.

Kaltura and 24i’s templates support smart TVs and lean set-top boxes (STBs) as well as game consoles, and allow the service provider to cherry-pick specific platforms to use for their various audiences, based on territory and other criteria.

“TV is changing rapidly, and it’s increasingly difficult for service providers, content owners, broadcasters and operators to keep pace,” said Ron Yekutiel, chairman and CEO, Kaltura. “Our goal is to ensure that our customers stay ahead of the game by continually offering them product enhancements, greater flexibility and scalability. By integrating 24i Media’s OTT TV app with our backend, we significantly lower the entry barrier for reaching the ten foot experience, and offer customers even more choice to launch a fast, cost-effective multiscreen OTT service today that can be easily enhanced in the future.”

The news comes as Gartner has positioned Kaltura as a leader in the 2015 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Video Content Management. The company is also positioned the furthest for 'completeness of vision’ in the report grid.
