Tata Elxsi Teams Up With French Firm To Help Shift Satellite TV Providers To Streaming

Tata Elxsi and France’s Ateme have joined forces to hasten the launch of free ad-supported Television (FAST) services.

What Happened: The partnership brings together Tata Elxsi’s over-the-top (OTT) delivery platform, TEPlay, and Ateme’s ad insertion solution. This integrated solution will help linear TV providers shift from satellite-only services to streaming platforms, helping video-on-demand players broaden their user base and revenue sources.

In addition, the FAST solution will have pre-integration with leading ad delivery platforms. This will allow for a quick launch of ad-based services and the creation of new revenue streams. The combined solution will also enhance viewer experiences through Tata Elxsi’s design digital proposition and Ateme’s manifest manipulation technology.

Our joint solution for FAST channels empowers content and service providers to leverage their VOD archives to engage more audiences and create new revenue streams."
