OTT for Government Use

We build safe and secure TV Apps and Streaming Channels across all web-, mobile-, social-, and ConnectedTV platforms for Government, States and Counties. Here is how States and Counties can utilize OTT Channels:

  • Communicate with residents faster
  • Send out publicly accessible news in real-time
  • Stream important events live - such as town meetings, events around elections or festivals
  • Stream educational content - both on-demand and live - such as workshops, webinars, curriculums
  • Publish live-streams and build on-demand archive for volunteer training
  • Safety: educate the public on emergency procedures
  • Promote volunteer engagement
  • Promote political participation
  • Promote neighborhood services
  • Address specific demographics: school children, parents, elderly
  • Strengthen a sense of community by featuring positive initiatives

What To Consider

Use a trusted an accredited partner with lots of OTT experience - an OTT partner who has built and launched hundreds of not thousands of Apps across all major platforms.

Look for security in place, such as the OTT partner's own, fully integrated, DRM service, GEO targeting/blocking and delivery via major and trusted CDNs. These are a few ingredients critical to a solid OTT setup for Government Channels of all types:

  • Easy to use Media Management System with intuitive Interface (so that non-tech personell can easily publish and update content)
  • LIVE & VOD streaming
  • Multi-Channel and Sub-Channel Management System, allowing you to extend/scale your OTT properties and apps continously and to feature your contents and archives in various Channels/Categories easy to browse by viewers.
  • Automated recording of Live-Streams for archiving and security
  • Automated watermark rendering during transcoding process (your State's or County's logo watermark should be branded onto your on-demand video assets)
  • DRM Security
  • Simple to read viewership analytics
  • High-Performance Delivery of on-demand assets and live-streams via global and trusted CDNs
  • Custom-branded TV Apps across all platforms, including Roku, FireTV, AppleTV, AndroidTV, SmartTV - all in your corporate design branding. You should be able to control the graphics, and of course all contents and gallery images.
  • Fast time-to-market: time can be of the essence, just as much as budget of course. Use an OTT partner who can help you launch your OTT app portfolio as fast as possible.
