The InsysPLAY platform has been chosen by Austrian television provider ORS to power a significantly enhanced OTT video service for ORS subsidiary simpliTV. The InsysPLAY platform provides simpliTV viewers with a richer, distinctive user experience and expanded selection of content across a broader range of consumer devices, all while giving ORS an extensible foundation for future features and growth.

simpliTV previously offered its customers basic live streaming of just eight channels, which were only available on iOS and Android devices. With the new InsysPLAY-powered simpliTV OTT service, viewers can watch well over 40 live channels from multiple providers on a wide array of platforms – from tablets and mobile phones to TVs and web browsers – while enjoying powerful features including catch-up TV, nPVR, pause/resume across multiple devices, and intelligent content recommendations.

InsysPLAY is a flexible, modular OTT platform that enables media enterprises to easily manage, monetize, distribute and promote their content through client-branded websites and apps. For the simpliTV project, Insys supplied a complete OTT solution including back-end and front-end application software, server hardware, Dell EMC storage systems and eight instances of the AWS Elemental Delta video delivery platform. The new simpliTV service went live in April.
