Enabling profitable video on demand scaling for Vivendi
Vivendi is an integrated media and content group that operates businesses throughout the media value chain from talent discovery to the creation, production and distribution of content. Through the Canal+ Group, Vivendi offers pay-TV in France, as well as in Africa, Poland and Vietnam. A pioneer in digital TV in Europe, Canal+ Group is on the leading edge online television, with catch-up, video on-demand and personalized TV offers, especially via CANALPLAY.
With this wide-ranging multimedia offering, Vivendi and Canal+ Group have faced mounting delivery costs from traditional content delivery networks as the appetite for OTT video continues to increase exponentially. In a quest to ensure profitable growth while offering a differentiating service for its flagship video on demand platforms and live sports and TV streaming channels, Vivendi signed with Streamroot in early 2017 to improve quality of experience and cut operating costs.
