Quickplay has announced a new partnership with You.i TV, aimed at pay-TV operators and content programmers building custom multiscreen applications.

You.i TVThe joint solution will offer customers a multi-tenant platform powered by Quickplay’s virtual headend, combined with a front-end user interface (UI) for premium over-the-top (OTT) video across all connected devices, including iOS, tvOS, Android, Amazon Fire, Xbox, PlayStation, Roku, smart TVs and RDK set-top boxes (STBs).

You.i Engine’s front-end technology solution removes the complexity of building custom multiscreen applications by outputting a single codebase that can be used to build and maintain interactive, fully branded interfaces.

Quickplay’s managed video platform provides the backend service via a software-defined headend, delivering secure streaming of nearly 700 live channels and hundreds of thousands of hours of encoded VOD content. Quickplay also handles all of the adaptive streaming and content management, including DRM solutions, user entitlements, dynamic advertising insertion, banner ad support, multi-language support, and featured content from over 200 premium content providers.

“You.i Engine grants operators and content providers unprecedented freedom to build truly delightful, immersive custom applications on every screen, and unshackles them from the fragmented, proprietary device marketplace,” said Jason Flick, CEO of You.i TV. “This partnership enables our customers to leverage the additional cost, time-to-market and service quality benefits of QuickPlay’s software-defined head-end capabilities and 24/7 managed service for next-generation TV services.”
