Viocorp has entered a contract to provide its online video platform, Viostream, to Indonesia’s PT Bit Teknologi Nusantara (BIT) and their partner PT Media Adalan Bersama (MAB), who will leverage Viocorp’s award winning technology ‘Viostream’ to provide live and on-demand video streaming for the world’s largest football event in 2014 and the Indonesian Super League on an ongoing basis. The contract also appoints BIT/MAB as the exclusive Viostream resellers in Indonesia.
Viostream is the leading online video platform in APAC and will be sold by MAB under their “d’awan” brand as “Maya Media Management” and “Maya Advertising Management”. MAB is offering a range of D’awan Maya subscription packages to broadcasters, enterprises and government organisations seeking live and on-demand video streaming software and services.
MAB has already secured their first customer, Domikado, who together with PT Bhakti Artha Persada (BAP) acquired the Indonesian mobile and broadband streaming rights for 2014 FIFA World Cup™ and the Indonesian Super League (Liga Super Indonesia) for the next 10-years. Domikado will use d’awan Maya Management Management powered by Viostream, to manage and deliver both live and on-demand video streaming to mobiles, tablets, and computers throughout Indonesia. ‘Road to Brazil’ pre-event programing has already begun and is available at http://www.domikado.com/fwc domestically within Indonesia.
“Launching d’awan Maya Media Management with such strong platform partner in Viocorp connected to d’awan CDN and a high-profile sporting event, will help drive awareness that a world-class online video platform and domestic CDN is now available in Indonesia,” said Nobel Tanihaha, President Director, PT Bit Teknologi Nusantara.
Mohd Yazrie Mohd Shukri, President Director, PT Media Adalan Bersama continued, “We chose Viostream as it’s the best turn-key online video platform in APAC and we also valued Viocorp’s extensive online video knowledge and commitment to the region. Partnering with Viocorp strengthens our position to offer live and on-demand streaming services using our proprietary encoding/compression and d’awan CDN to Indonesian broadcasters, enterprises and government organisations.”
In addition to Maya, the Viostream platform powers a number online video services in Asia including the leading catch-up TV service in Malaysia tonton.com.my for Media Prima, and SingTel Media Delivery Platform in Singapore.
“We are excited to be working with Nobel and Yazrie, together with their incredibly talented technical team at BIT & MAB to open what will undoubtedly become the largest single market for online video in South East Asia as more of the country’s 250 million people get connected to the internet,” said Tim Chatfield, CEO Viocorp Asia & Head of Partnerships. “This agreement cements Viocorp’s presence in the Asian market as the ‘go to’ provider for Online Video Platform technology and further accelerates Viocorp’s expansion throughout the region.”
