SPI International chooses EVRIDEO’s cloud-based broadcasting platform to launch new services
Global media company SPI International has chosen EVRIDEO to host five of its latest channels bringing the total number of channels hosted with EVRIDEO up to ten. This longstanding EVRIDEO customer demonstrated a major vote of confidence in the ground-breaking, self-service, cloud-based broadcasting platform on January 1st, 2021 by choosing EVRIDEO to launch exciting new offerings such as Dizi in Asia, Africa, and Russia, as well as FilmBox Turkey and FilmBox Extra. SPI International, which currently operates 42 television channels and digital services across six continents, already uses EVRIDEO’s cloud playout to create, manage, and deliver five of its linear channels, including staunch favorites like Gametoon, Erox, Eroxxx, and Dizi.
It is becoming increasingly difficult to resist the allure of cloud-based broadcasting in an era where speed to market, flexibility, and agility have become critical to survival. As more independent broadcasters are searching for ways to quickly, economically, and easily manage and deliver professional premium channels to traditional pay TV operators and telcos, cloud-based offerings like EVRIDEO's are gaining traction and simultaneously triggering a major transformation in the TV industry.
“We see more and more clients like SPI International all over the world, switching from the legacy, CAPEX intensive, on-premises playout systems to the next generation cloud playout. SPI International has been a huge on-premises PlayBox “Channel-in-a-Box” client of mine, operating more than 35 PlayBox servers in their MCR facilities in Poland,” says Vassil Lefterov, the Founder and former CEO of PlayBox Technology.
“Now that I am VP Business Development of EVRIDEO, I am happy to see SPI International doing all of their new channel launches on EVRIDEO’s Cloud & SaaS platform solution”.
“We found EVRIDEO’s solution to be a complete game-changer to the way we adapt and broadcast our content and lower our broadcasting costs, especially nowadays when the remote solution is more valuable than ever,” said Güney Yasavur, COO at SPI International. “EVRIDEO’s platform made it easier to launch quickly new TV channels in multiple languages, featuring dynamic graphics and multiple IP-based outputs” added Yasavur.
As they continue to grow their global presence with EVRIDEO’s support, SPI International’s teams in Poland and Turkey are collaborating with EVRIDEO’s cloud playout team to mutually upload content and graphics and manage all the scheduling needed to maintain a full professional-grade TV channel. Already used by 40 major broadcasters to deliver over 200 TV channels to various platforms around the world, EVRIDEO continues to lead the the transition from hardware to cloud playout, making waves in an industry ripe for disruption.
