What is the exact idea behind ViewLift?
ViewLift is a global business-to-business software company that offers clients around the world end-to-end on-demand and live video streaming solutions, across the web and all major over-the-top devices. We are pioneers in developing native applications across all OTT devices. Beginning in late 2014, our technical expertise attracted large entertainment and sports content owners whom we assisted in creating their own OTT properties. We then further developed our technology to offer true end-to-end capability for content owners, across entertainment, sports, media and broadcasting.
What kind of Market-leading streaming solutions does ViewLift offer?
ViewLift offers an all-inclusive video platform to deploy ready-made as well as customized streaming services for live and on-demand video and related content. ViewLift’s proprietary IP constitutes a full tech-stack, providing extensive functionality at a reduced time to market.
Our distribution and monetization platform comprises cloud-based content management and video management systems, flexible monetization models (AVOD, SVOD, TVOD, and hybrids), user identity management, AppCMS, and dozens of purpose-built services ready for new client deployment, and real-time analytics. It also allows integrations with ad-serving, ticketing, marketing and customer contact, e-commerce, event planning & other third-party tools.
ViewLift offers end-to-end solutions for content owners in multiple industries that enable them to distribute and monetize their content.
