Smooth migration to a new video streaming platform bolsters bottom line

KDDI x TV Asahi

 

With 49 million subscribers, KDDI is one of Japan's largest telecommunications companies. In addition to telecommunications services, KDDI also offers VideoPass, a video streaming service that allows subscribers to watch movies and TV shows on demand.

 

In 2020, KDDI established a joint venture company with TV Asahi, one of the top 5 key TV stations in Japan. Together, they rebranded VideoPass to a brand new streaming service “TELASA”.

KKStream seamlessly migrated KDDI's entire subscriber base onto a new BlendVision powered platform in less than two months without disrupting user experience.

Videopass has achieved remarkable business growth since working with KKStream from 2015. Our revenue increased significantly, and the number of daily active users are 1.5 times higher than before.

 

In 2020, we established a joint venture with TV Asahi, and rebranded Videopass to an advanced streaming service “TELASA”. With KKStream, we definitely would keep making great strides.

Painless service transition by minimized integration effort for live and VOD contents

KDDI x PIA

 

uP!!! is a Japanese ticketing service, operated by KDDI—one of the top three telecom operators in Japan, and PIA—the biggest ticketing company in Japan. The platform provides a premium experience of live music events, theatre performance, and other exclusive VIP events. In 2018, uP!!! hoped to achieve vertical integration through adding video streaming services of live concerts (Live Streaming) and video playback (VOD), enriching users’ entertainment life.

Transcoding an entire documentary library and adding DRM in just three days

CNEX

 

Giloo is a start-up company that has since become Taiwan's largest documentary streaming service for Chinese-speaking world. In 2017, they had a remarkable opportunity to host the first-ever online film festival exclusively featuring over 80 feature-length documentaries.

Value Delivered

 

Days before the festival, Giloo realized their player failed to meet the highest standards to thoroughly protect copyrighted content. Giloo needed to find a way to transcode hundreds of hours of documentary films into a digital format compatible with Hollywood-grade DRM—a process that usually takes at least a month—or else they would forfeit the chance to host the online film festival. With only days to spare before the festival, they approached KKStream.

 

As a result of BlendVision team's efforts, Giloo complied with studio-approved security standards and was able to participate in the world's first online film festival exclusively for documentaries, giving thousands of attendees the chance to stream Giloo's full collection of documentaries online.

Giloo successfully gave thousands of festival attendees streaming access to our full collection of fea-ture-length documentaries—this was only possible because of BlendVision's cutting-edge transcoding technology, Hollywood-grade DRM and extensive content delivery experience.

Seamlessly integrating ad-based linear streaming into an existing platform

KKTV

 

KKTV is a Taiwanese video streaming service provider that went online in October 2016. KKTV subscribers gain access to thousands of Korean, Chinese, Taiwanese, Hong Kong and Japanese dramas, which they can watch on-demand on mobile, tablet or web applications.

 

After gaining momentum to become one of Taiwan's largest on-demand streaming services, KKTV wanted to take their business even further. They saw an opportunity in viewers’ willingness to watch advertisements in exchange for free content, so they approached KKStream with an idea: incorporate ad-embedded linear streaming into their existing VOD-streaming platform to generate additional revenue from adver-tisements.

Value Delivered

 

Since integrating linear streaming into their existing platform, KKTV has expanded their business to include seven different channels that offer scheduled streaming for thousands of Asian dramas. This new platform gives KKTV the chance to expand their user base, increase advertising revenue, and access untapped markets.

By integrating BlendVision streaming solution, KKTV was able to adopt cutting edge video transcoding, Server-Side-Ad-Insertion (SSAI) technology and bandwidth optimization strategies in most efficient way.

 

As a result, KKTV successfully reduced cost, and expanded to a hybrid OTT monetization model: SVOD + AVOD. With BlendVision, KKTV can focus more on content operation, and is able to provide better video streaming experience to our audience.
