Cinépolis selects Verizon Digital Media Services for live streaming platform

Verizon Digital Media Services announced it has been selected to power Cinépolis KLIC Live, the service that enables users to watch live Club Deportivo Guadalajara (Chivas) home matches on mobile and connected devices.

The company said that additional live content including other sporting events and concerts will be added into the streaming service in the upcoming months.

Verizon Digital Media Services officially launched Cinépolis KLIC Live as part of the OTT platform Cinépolis KLIC in January 2017, with the live stream of Club Deportivo Guadalajara playing against Club Universidad Nacional.

Cinépolis KLIC Live is powered by the Live Streaming Solution from Verizon Digital Media Services. The solution includes features from the Uplynk Video Streaming service, which uses a single cloud-based workflow to stream live, linear or on-demand video content on any mobile or connected device with HD quality.

Additional features, such as a cloud-based event dashboard, comprehensive quality monitoring and 24/7 live event support, enable producers to stream live events reliably from start to finish. The Edgecast Content Delivery Network, an integrated component of the solution, instantly delivers live streams anywhere in the world.

“When streaming a live event, every second counts,” said Ralf Jacob, president for Verizon Digital Media Services. “Viewers demand a flawless experience so they never miss a moment of the action. We help OTT providers like Cinépolis KLIC successfully meet this booming live content demand by offering the most dependable, truly scalable technological infrastructure.”
