Bitcentral Inc., the provider of award-winning efficient media workflows for broadcast and digital video, will be demonstrating its latest innovations in delivering the future of storytelling at the NAB Show 2022 (Las Vegas Convention Center, April 23 – 27, booth W5100). These will include the first public demonstration of the company’s combined FUEL + Powr.tv platform – since the company acquired Powr.tv earlier this year.
The industry-leading FUEL+Powr.tv digital streaming media platform provides one unified workflow that simplifies video management, streaming, monetization, consumer application experience, and distribution for broadcasters, publishers, and media companies. It eliminates vendor management fatigue and integration challenges, lowers costs, and improves time-to-market, leading to increased content ROI.
The platform enables a ‘manage once, distribute many’ approach via a modular and flexible system; enhances viewer engagement with real-time live chat & watch party functionality; enables broadcast-quality live streaming and dynamic linear channels; offers a rapid go-to-market foundation with best-of-breed CTV, mobile and web app solutions; and supports flexible monetization models, including AVOD, SVOD, TVOD and syndication/FAST channel distribution.
VideoElephant, one of the largest global video aggregators will be at the Bitcentral booth to highlight how FUEL+Powr.tv is powering and distributing its growing 150+ FAST channels.
