Ooyala's 'Remote Assets' gives publishers full control, security of their online videos

Online video platform Ooyala is integrating behind-the-firewall hosting of video assets, allowing companies to transcode and host video assets on their own infrastructure and use Ooyala's platform to manage, syndicate, monetize, deliver and analyze their videos across all viewing screens.

Behind-the-firewall hosting of video assets with Ooyala's "Remote Assets" is optimal for publishers with large content libraries that have already been transcoded and for publishers who would like to manage the security of their assets on their own private infrastructure. Video content is referenced by Backlot, Ooyala's end-to-end platform, but is never copied or removed from the publisher's infrastructure. 

Even though publishers will be utilizing their own infrastructure they are still able to leverage all of Ooyala's market-leading features: Advanced Syndication, Analytics, Monetization and Adaptive Bit-rate Delivery.

"Large media customers have thousands of assets that have already been transcoded and prepared for online delivery," said Bismarck Lepe, president of products at Ooyala. "This feature allows them to continue to leverage their existing infrastructure investment and the Ooyala platform to syndicate, monetize and analyze their video."
