As the technology infrastructure for advanced video services continues evolving exponentially, how can tier II and III providers effectively compete with larger providers for subscribers?

We explored this topic and much more at the DTVE Digital Symposium webinar “Reap benefits from a shared OTT platform: Zapi’s success story in Spain” on 10 December 2020.

Resulting from the joint efforts of Plataforma Multimedia de Operadores (PMO), Zapi combines an advanced technology platform, collective purchasing power and content negotiation capacity – all while maintaining its advantage of subscriber proximity.

In this webinar, we heard from its CTO José Carrillo how Zapi is cost-effectively competing with Tier 1 operators thanks to a unique solution in the Spanish market. He was joined by Mirada’s CEO José Luis Vázquez and Verimatrix VP of International Strategy Geir Bjørndal, in a discussion moderated by DTVE’s Stuart Thomson. The conversation was also powered by a market analysis, offered exclusively by Omdia.

The webinar recording is now available on demand, to discover:

  • How Zapi has brought together many digital TV partners into a single shared OTT platform, doubling their channel line-up and reducing CAPEX
  • How to capitalise on local content and offer viewers exactly what they want, while strengthening smaller operators’ purchasing power
  • How to benefit from a successful bring-your-own-device (BYOD) strategy according to the latest trends on device preferences
