VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — dotstudioPRO, an industry leader in online video streaming technology, today announced the launch of its new product “dPRO FAST Engine”, which currently powers clients like Allen Media Group’s Local Now, Sports TV and The Grio TV. In collaboration with world-class UX/UI design firm Baby Steps and powered by dotstudioPRO’s award-winning video CMS, the dPRO FAST Engine is a linear channel aggregator that enables streaming platforms to distribute and monetize their linear OTT channels. Ad-free supported on mobile, WebOS, tvOS, Android, Tizen, Roku, and HTML5.
dPRO FAST Engine is a complete back-end and front-end solution for FAST linear channel streaming, which includes an Electronic Program Guide (EPG) framework. FAST Engine comes with an award-winning management system that helps publishers ingest linear channels from today’s best delivery systems, manage monetization with server-side ad insertion through integrations with today’s popular technologies such as Thunderstorm; AdSpring; Publica; and AWS Mediatailor. The system integrated with disparate EPG delivery formats from companies such as Amagi, WURL, Frequency, Veset and Gracenote, creating standardizations by standardizing metadata and providing simple API endpoints.
Through its partnership with a leading design agency, Baby Steps, dotstudioPRO has developed a world-class UI/UX framework for dPRO FAST Engine. The framework comes with front-end components and an elegant, easy-to-use EPG template with SDKs available on all OTT devices to help speed up app development. This framework allows developers to focus on front-end user experiences rather than struggling directly with complex back-end APIs. Really, the heavy lifting has gone into kicking off features and components that are now basic requirements for any streaming service.
“Our deep experience in designing consumer-focused FAST products is enhanced by the dPRO FAST engine. We worked closely with dotstudioPRO to design a best-in-class UI/UX framework, resulting in a well-branded, familiar and frictionless experience. .for all consumers. The dotstudioPRO CMS and APIs are purpose-built with strategic flexibility in mind, laying the foundation for an incredible, unique, and engaging experience for every customer and consumer.” – Adam Babkes and Mike Mintz, owners of Baby Steps
“With Baby Steps, we are on a fast track with developing industry-leading innovations for the FAST video streaming industry,” said Joe Pascual, co-founder and CTO of dotstudioPRO. “In the recent past, many solutions rightly focused on tools for the content rights holder to build and distribute their branded channels. We now believe that with our framework, more companies like Local Now and Sports.TV, both currently leading the pack in sports channels (as previewed in a Variety article, July 27, 2022), will be able to compete and succeed in the direct-to-consumer aggregation space,” continues Pascual.
dPRO FAST Engine currently serves over 400 linear streaming channels and is tailor-made for any service looking to launch its own Pluto TV or Fubo TV to expand its current on-demand offering.
