Video technology provider Kaltura has announced what it calls a landmark, ‘disruptive’ pay-as-you-go platform that enables operators to bring video everywhere.

kaltura 19 May 2016The company says that its new Video Platform as a Service (VPaaS) contains hundreds of video APIs that enable tech and SaaS providers, developers and integrators to rapidly build and launch new custom video products, and to add advanced rich media workflows into existing products.

In addition, the company says that Kaltura VPaaS lets SaaS providers, integrators, in-house teams in large organisations and developers quickly add video capabilities and easily integrate video as a native data type into existing platforms and workflows by leveraging the Kaltura APIs, SDKs and developer tools  for their specific needs.

Available immediately as a public, private or hybrid cloud deployment, the product can be accessed by opening a developer account at Kaltura. The company is offering what it says is a ‘disruptive’ Free Tier of $400 worth of services per month for the first year.

“Video is a new data type. It is the biggest data asset in the cloud as measured by storage, bandwidth and computing resources,” commented Ron Yekutiel, Kaltura co-founder, chairman and CEO. “Until today there has not been a cloud offering that provides a self-service platform with elastic flexibility coupled with the end-to-end capabilities needed to handle video as a native asset - from ingestion through enrichment, delivery, analytics and experience - while allowing developers to easily tackle the challenges of dealing with video at scale, and tightly integrated within their systems.”
