ACTON, Mass., Jan. 19, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SeaChange International, Inc. will debut its SeaChange Rave™ premium OTT video platform to content owners and television service providers attending at NATPE Miami (January 20-22) and the NCTC's Winter Educational Conference (San Antonio, January 26-27). Unveiled in December, Rave addresses every consumer preference for OTT video and TV, including on-demand, time-shifted, live and downloaded content enjoyed on any consumer device.
"Rave is the complete foundation for OTT strategies that will truly delight today's consumers and answer the strict requirements of the TV industry to protect their content and drive value for the entire video catalog," said Ray Fitzgerald, SVP Americas Sales, SeaChange. "We're thrilled to put the comprehensive Rave multi-device experience into the hands of the world's video programmers and providers attending NATPE Miami and NCTC Winter."
Rave comprises every component required to build an OTT business with the integrity and scalability defined by premium subscription television – from multi-device consumer experiences and storefronts to content ingestion. Rave is further distinguished by its ability to unify OTT and television delivery in a single platform with the core SeaChange technologies that are proven in service to millions of consumers connecting by cloud, IPTV and HFC for billions of video streams annually.
Deployable in cloud SaaS and other flexible models, Rave raises the bar on OTT performance with services, tools and integrations that go well beyond today's online video platforms' basic capacity for workflow, media management and analytics. Rave enables extensive video and interactive cross-device advertising throughout individual streams and user experiences. Advanced content promotion and monetization features include download to purchase and rent, subscription packaging and couponing to capture the full value of every video title.
On Jan. 22, Malcolm CaSelle, CEO of Timeline Labs, will participate in the NATPE Miami conference panel Evolution of News: How Digital Video Has Transformed News Reporting. Last month SeaChange announced its definitive agreement to acquire Timeline Labs (TLL, LLC), which provides a rapidly deployed SaaS platform that enables television operators to discover, curate and display geographically targeted news stories trending across social media sites (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.) with visualizations that are ready for air on television and over-the-top.
Produced by the National Association of Television Program Executives, NATPE Miami is committed to serving as a catalyst in the content revolution under the theme Content without Borders. SeaChange will host Rave demonstrations at the Fontainebleau Hotel, Tresor Tower suite 2-1808.
Developed for cable television operators, the National Cable Television Cooperative's Winter Educational Conference focuses on the latest technology and how it applies to, impacts and enhances service offerings. SeaChange will demonstrate Rave at Technology Showcase booth 417.
