Leading Middle East and North African entertainment provider OSN has deployed online video technology from Bitmovin to deliver premium content across the media supply chain workflows of its Wavo streaming service.

Bitmovin’s solution provides encoding features, such as multi-codec, per-title and three-pass encoding, allowing OSN to select the best options for each piece of content and to adjust the bitrate requirements to optimise the delivery of each asset. These features are said to allow OSN to offer content on the platform faster, significantly improve picture quality and reduce operational costs.

“Our viewers want the widest range of content on all their devices and at an affordable price, without compromising on video quality,” commented Dave Mace, cloud and digital services, OSN. “Bitmovin Encoding enables us to deliver high quality content across our media supply chain, allowing us to offer the richest experience on our streaming service Wavo.”

“Consumers in the MENA region embraced online video early on and demand high quality content that is available at any time and on any device,” said Stefan Lederer, CEO at Bitmovin. “OSN has a track record of investing in innovative and creative technology to offer the most advanced, comfortable and affordable viewing experience to its subscribers. We are proud that OSN selected Bitmovin to help facilitate its media supply chain workflows and optimise content encoding to the highest standard.”
