OTT content platform provider Screenweave has announced the release of its Screenweave content publishing platform. The company said that the cloud-based solution, previously only available in beta format, is “now available via subscription – after a free 30-day trial – to any organisation wishing to manage, present, and deliver video to consumers through over-the-top (OTT) platforms and mobile apps”.
Screenweave is a SaaS platform for the curation, distribution, and promotion of content across a variety of modern digital viewing platforms. It is designed to help schools, local governments, businesses, and houses of worship to launch and manage their own branded video channels on iOS and Android mobile devices plus OTT platforms including Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Android TV.
“Many organisations want their own custom-branded video apps on OTT and mobile devices, but have found it too difficult to do,” said JJ Parker, CEO of Screenweave. “We designed the Screenweave platform to make the process super-simple, so users can start from scratch and launch their own OTT content presence in only 10 minutes. After that, they can just keep adding new content, and Screenweave does the rest. The feedback we received from beta testers confirmed that they found Screenweave faster and easier than any other tool they’d seen to get content onto all of these distribution platforms.”
Users are able to upload (VoD) video files and metadata through Screenweave’s web-based dashboard, with the software automatically transforming the files for compatibility with (and publishing on) each viewing platform. Content is automatically sorted into curated collections based on user-defined criteria, while live streams of scheduled events such as government meetings, worship services, and sports can also be integrated seamlessly into customers’ channels and apps.
