Tata Communications partners with Kaltura to provide next generation online video and content delivery platform

Mumbai (BSE) – June 24, 2014

Integrated offering provides end-to-end video workflow and delivery through a simple interface

Tata Communications, a leading provider of A New World of CommunicationsTM, announces a partnership with Kaltura that will combine Tata Communications’ next generation Content Delivery Network (CDN) with Kaltura’s leading open source online video platform. The integrated offering will enable media companies, enterprises and educational institutions to manage the entire video process, from acquisition to delivery, through a single easy-to-use interface.

Online and mobile consumption is changing the landscape of audience engagement in terms of the way people view media and entertainment, work and learn. Consumers today expect the best possible digital experience when viewing content, regardless of device and geographic location. Given how complicated the video workflow and distribution can be for content providers, Tata Communications and Kaltura combine to offer the industry an end-to-end, cloud-based video platform. Content acquisition, transformation, publishing, billing, monetisation and delivery can all be handled through one simple application interface.

“The partnership with Tata Communications enables us to give our customers a cutting edge solution for management and delivery of content to the end-user. Not only does it streamline content management with Kaltura’s leading platform, but it also assures that even large video files are delivered quickly and in the highest quality via Tata Communications’ global Content Delivery Network.”

-– Ron Yekutiel, Kaltura Chairman and CEO

“The single application interface allows content owners to focus more on creating quality content for both on-demand and live delivery and less on media workflow and distribution. By joining with Kaltura, we are making executing online video strategy easier than ever. We can now offer a one-stop solution for online video workflow that gives cutting edge features, while extending the global reach of customers”

-– Genius Wong, Senior Vice President of Global Network Services at Tata Communications
