The companies say that the integration of Minerva's platform with MX1's content management services and global delivery infrastructure will enable media companies, broadcasters, mobile service providers, ISPs and pay-TV operators to launch scalable OTT video services quickly and cost-effectively.

Minerva's OVP supports functionality including live TV, video-on-demand, personal video recording, catch-up TV, pause of live TV and restart TV. The platform also provides a set of analytics data designed to enable operators to optimise their video services in order to increase user engagement and retention. MX1 will manage all aspects of the OTT content workflow and service delivery, including operations and 24/7 monitoring.

“In partnership with MX1, we are redefining the way large-scale OTT video services can be efficiently created, launched, and operated,” explained Minerva Networks CEO Mauro Bonomi. “The combination of our management platform with MX1's proven media processing services and delivery infrastructure provides a comprehensive solution for the delivery of engaging entertainment experiences on a variety of connected devices.”

“Consumers are looking for compelling services that allow them to enjoy a variety of live, time-shifted, and on-demand video content anywhere and on any screen," added Daniel Kiessling, senior product manager at MX1. “Our global OTT TV cloud service will enable broadcasters, media companies, and operators worldwide to better monetise their content.”
