KIT digital Provides Liberty Global With Technology and Services Platform
AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS, Sep 12, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --Liberty Global, a leading international cable operator, has selected KIT digital, Inc. (NASDAQ: KITD), a premium cloud-based software solutions and technology services provider for multiscreen video management and delivery, to design, build and host the platform driving its new IP-based video-on-demand and live streaming service announced at IBC.
The Horizon online service will see the creation of an ecosystem that provides a single and flexible, multi-lingual, multi-tenant, and multi-currency platform that can be rolled out across all of Liberty Global's worldwide subsidiaries. Scheduled to go live later this year, the service will initially be available to subscribers in the Netherlands and then rolled out to other countries in Liberty Global's footprint. The service provides subscribers with the flexibility to access video content on multiple devices anywhere there is a broadband connection.

"We are developing this new service to meet the needs of tomorrow's consumer," said Ryc Brownrigg, vice president of digital technology for Liberty Global. "We have built this platform to scale easily over time, encompassing new devices and trends as they occur in order to provide our customers with a cutting-edge service that surpasses the competition."

Through creating a best of breed and future-proof service, Liberty Global is capitalizing on opportunities to boost customer retention rates and allow content partners to expand their reach through new channels.
