Customer: nc+ (ITI Neovision)
nc+ is a Polish digital satellite platform, owned and operated by the French media company Canal+. nc+ was established as a result of the merger of two leaders in the market – CYFRA+ and n platform. It has over 2 million subscribers.
nc+ GO is an application that gives access to approx. 90 live channels and hundreds of films, series and shows on demand for nc+ subscribers. nc+ GO already has more than 200,000 users.
In addition, the platform includes features such as:
- Notifications – the user can select the show he or she wants to watch, and the application will remind him or her about it through relevant notifications,
- Back to the last moment – the application remembers the moment at which the user stopped watching a video and proposes to return to this point when the video is played again,
- Sorting and creating a list of favourites – people who like to organise their favourite television content will be able to create their own lists and groups of shows; this applies both to channel streaming and the playing of videos from the VOD collection,
- Connection with social media – the option to like and share content with your friends on Facebook and Twitter.
With nc+ GO you can watch your favourite channels and selected shows on demand – not only at home, but in any location. The app also makes it possible to use a mobile device as a second screen at home, so that several family members can watch their favourite shows at the same time. It was recognised by the jury of the Mobile Trends Awards by being nominated to the prestigious award for mobile technologies in the „mobile application – entertainment” category.
The app is available for devices with iOS, Android and Windows Phone systems, and also for computers (Windows and OSX) via the website.
Under the contract, Insys was jointly responsible for the UX design and wholly responsible for the encoding of LIVE channels and VOD content in MPEG-DASH, as well as the distribution of videos provided by nc+, signal protection (Google Widevine DRM and Microsoft PlayReady DRM), and the delivery and maintenance of backend for content management and statistics processing.
