Giovanni Piccirilli, CTO at RTL Netherlands, said that digital viewing is at an incredibly exciting phase in its evolution and Dutch viewers are some of the most demanding on the planet. RTL is committed to transforming its fans’ experience through a high performance next-generation digital platform.

“For this we have defined a highly scalable, future-proof and modular architecture in which Piksel’s technology naturally fits,” he said. “We are looking forward to partnering with Piksel to deliver RTL’s content with the very best viewing experience for all our customers.”

The new service leverages products from the Piksel Palette, a set of media services built on a cloud-native architecture: Digital Showcase, a suite of OTT back-office services, and the company's  flagship Fuse Metadata Manager, which will help accelerate the creation of RTL’s new consolidated offering.
