Is a Unified Video Solution the Answer to Challenges in Content Delivery & Monetization for OTT?

Over-the-top (OTT) has become a norm than a passing trend. The emergence of internet-enabled devices and smart TVs has made the ‘cord-cutting’ phenomenon persistent. The number of active OTT video subscribers in the US will be 197 million by 2022 (eMarketer), while the OTT industry in its entirety is projected to surpass $40 billion by 2020 (TDG Research Study).

OTT it is still snowed with several challenges. Video can be a complex environment with its own set of unique hurdles. Some of the common challenges that content owners face are –

Complexity and cost of infrastructure for building the platform
