verizon 12 dec 2018The partnerships will see the addition of the THEOplayer Universal Video Player and IRIS.TV’s Video Personalisation Platform in expanding VDMS’ capabilities to deliver personalised experiences on a single platform.

THEOplayer Universal Video Player is a video playback solution designed to facilitate video experiences on any platform, and any device.

The company believes that personalisation paired with metadata enrichment maximises the impact of recommendations and generates unique insights about audience behaviour and content value, to retain engaged viewers.

“These partnerships demonstrate our ongoing commitment to provide our customers with access to all the services needed to deliver great content embedded in a single platform,” said Verizon Digital Media Services president Ralf Jacob. “The integration of these technologies brings advanced features that can help bring great playback capabilities and personalised services to every viewer on any device.”
