Kaltura scores win with Swedish gaming company

Open-source online video platform Kaltura today said Svenska Spel, Sweden's official gaming company, had deployed Kaltura's SaaS solution across its web properties, with a plan to migrate to the Kaltura On-Prem platform later this year.

The news comes as Kaltura continues to strengthen its European operations and gets ready to announce a number of new international deals.

Svenska Spel is owned by the Swedish government and, with a net market share of 51 percent, is the largest gaming operator in the country.

"Online video brings a myriad of new opportunities for us to engage with our users, and connect with an even larger audience on the web," said Magnus Helander, Motion Media Producer at Svenska Spel. "We conducted an extensive search for the right video solution, and ultimately Kaltura demonstrated the highest level of flexibility, deep and specific expertise, and Kaltura is the only provider that has both SaaS and self-hosted deployment options to choose from."

Kaltura Chairman and CEO Ron Yekutiel said the deal highlights the growing popularity of its open-source solutions.

"An increasing number of enterprises, media companies, educational institutions and service providers are turning to Kaltura for its unique on-premise software, which provides them with the highest level of control and flexibility," Yekutiel said.
