World Television partners with Kontiki to enable network-friendly delivery of enterprise video

London(10/26/2011) -

World Television, the leading video communications company for corporations and governments, has announced a partnership with enterprise video solutions provider Kontiki. In order to enhance its extensive technology infrastructure, World Television will be utilising Kontiki's Enterprise Content Delivery Network (ECDN) to provide clients with a superior online viewing experience for high-quality corporate video.

Instead of investing in costly hardware to optimise delivery, World Television's clients will now be able to utilise their existing IT network to channel video content without negatively impacting business-critical traffic. The patented cloud-based server infrastructure only requires one ‘copy' of a video stream or file to cross each wide area network (WAN) so bandwidth, and therefore picture quality, remain unaffected.

Key benefits include:

  • Live and on-demand video delivered automatically and ready-to-play to desktops and mobile devices, like iPods and iPads, regardless of the end user's geographic location or bandwidth capabilities
  • The ability to efficiently access libraries of pre-recorded material, such as training videos or financial results, that can be quickly cached to desktop
  • Corporate YouTube-style private streaming services

"Our clients demand a faultless viewing experience - it is futile commissioning high-quality video if the content buffers and renders it unwatchable. And we need to minimise the impact on bandwidth to comply with the requirements of their IT departments", said Steve Garvey, CEO and Chairman at World Television. "Kontiki's cloud solution was the logical choice because it delivers streams locally from a single source, thereby eliminating any negative impact on picture quality due to bandwidth limitations".

"We are delighted to be partnering with World Television", remarked Dan Vetras, President and CEO at Kontiki. "Using our ECDN cloud solution, businesses are free to embrace the power of enterprise video content to communicate and educate their workforces without being forced to make expensive and time-consuming changes to existing infrastructure".
