24/7 live courtroom trial network Law&Crime has turned to live VOD and on-demand OTT service provider Simplestream to enhance the content delivery capabilities of its multiscreen service.

Simplestream LawCrime 25Feb2019This partnership follows a recent rollout expansion of Law&Crime across several new OTT distribution platforms. Aiming to allow Law&Crime to cater better for providers and engage with new audiences, Simplestream has automated the channel’s Live2VOD workflow and is currently managing its encoding and feed syndication.

This complements a remit of features and capabilities that Law&Crime is now equipped with, including live streaming, Live2VOD, video hosting, video management, dynamic ad insertion and live clipping. The service is available on most of the major OTT platforms including Philo, Pluto, Xumo, TVPlayer, iOS, Android, tvOS and Amazon Fire.

“As we continue to expand the breadth of our live trial coverage, leading commentary and rich analysis, it is critical for us to have the best technology in place, so we can give our viewers a top-quality viewing experience,” said Law&Crime chief technical officer Juan Miguel Bassalik. “Simplestream has given us all that we were looking for – the opportunity to generate new advertising revenue and reach more audiences on a wider range of platforms, while reducing the complexity of our workflow and providing us with an automated, streamlined solution.”

“Law&Crime is a unique content offering; it is the only service of its kind that gives viewers a window into the action-filled, dramatic world of crime, courtrooms and trials,” added Simplestream chief commercial officer Dan Finch. “It’s not surprising that such an engaging channel has so much viewer interest, so to harness and grow that interest, flexible and future-proofed technology is needed. This project showcases how our live-2-VOD and syndication workflow can help leading content owners like Law&Crime keep pace with both the market and consumer demand.”
