Piksel targets legacy video providers with software-based OTT platform

Piksel is introducing a SaaS (Software as a Service)-based OTT video platform. Targeting legacy content providers and distributors--such as cable companies and broadcasters--the company said the platform will enable customers to launch over-the-top services quickly without having to invest in "static" infrastructure. Touting its adaptability, the company said in a press release that providers can pick the functions they need to roll out multiscreen services. "This is about easily building on what you already have, both technologically and from a business model point of view, rather than rip and replace a tool which is outdated and expensive to maintain," said Kevin Joyce, Piksel's chief commercial officer.
