Customer: TR Warszawa

About the customer

Modern performing arts theater TR Warszawa aims to integrate residents and visitors into the cultural life of Poland’s capital city. Part of Warsaw’s cultural center, it features Polish and international talent.

About the project

TR Warszawa responded to production closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic with an ambitious goal: to securely stream performances of its plays online and monetize them to support its business. In just a matter of weeks, it needed to design and implement a video-on-demand (VOD) solution that would let viewers pay to watch plays on their televisions and mobile devices at home. To accomplish this goal, TR Warszawa built its solution on Amazon Web Services (AWS) with the help of Insys Video Technologies (Insys VT), a video integration company and an AWS Advanced Consulting Partner. Insys VT helped the theater customize its white-label solution to create and monetize a VOD and live streaming portal in the cloud.

Chosen solution

When restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic prevented in-person performances, TR Warszawa looked for a way to bring live and previously filmed productions to its patrons online. The theater defined several criteria for its project: the streaming service needed to protect performance videos from internet piracy; it needed to have an interface that aligned visually with the theater’s website, and TR Warszawa’s partner for the project needed to provide professional technical support for the rollout and ongoing maintenance. Insys VT offered Insys VOD solution, ready to launch, whitelabel OTT solution for streaming theatre performances. The platform was successfully implemented in 4 weeks.
