PRESS RELEASE, New York, August 30, 2017
Streamroot, the leading provider of hybrid over-the-top (OTT) delivery infrastructure solutions, announced today that it is helping the global round-the-clock news network RT deliver video content through its patented Streamroot DNA™ service.
RT is a global press outlet broadcasting news, current affairs and documentary content to audiences in over 100 countries spanning 5 continents. 70 million people watch RT channels every week, with 35 million watching RT daily. To scale profitably to growing audiences across the world, the company has chosen Streamroot DNA™ distributed network architecture on top of its existing content delivery network (CDN) infrastructure. RT has now implemented Streamroot across its Russian, English and Arabic channels, as well as its documentary offering.
The company has chosen Streamroot to achieve unparalleled global reach, improved scale and higher viewing quality, while reducing the cost of delivery as the platform continues to grow.
“Streamroot is the perfect addition to our delivery infrastructure,” says Ivan Lysenko, Distribution Executive at RT. “Its distributed mesh network architecture easily accommodates our growth, while the company’s fixed-fee delivery model allows us to expand both our video services and our user base without further investment in over-the-top delivery.”
