Quickplay has announced a partnership with You.i TV, creator of a development platform for multiscreen video applications. The joint solution is intended to offer pay TV operators and content programmers a multi-tenant platform powered by Quickplay's virtual headend, combined with a front-end user interface (UI) from You.i TV to deliver OTT video service. The combined solution is designed to support all connected devices, including iOS, tvOS, Android, Amazon Fire, Xbox, PlayStation, Roku, smart TVs and RDK set-top boxes.
The You.i Engine outputs a single codebase that can be used to build and maintain multiscreen applications. The custom rendering engine accesses the GPU and allows control of the UI layout and motion via a direct plugin with Adobe Creative Cloud. Quickplay's managed video platform provides the backend service via a software defined headend, delivering secure streaming of nearly 700 live channels and hundreds of thousands of hours of encoded VOD content. Quickplay also handles all of the adaptive streaming and content management, including DRM solutions, user entitlements, dynamic ad insertion, banner ad support, multi-language support, and content from 200+ providers.
