The World Watches as Blink Taps Ooyala for Complete OTT Services

With OoyalaBlink Now is maximizing its business potential across three separate OTT properties with a single provider, powering ad operations, video delivery, data-driven insights and live streaming to more than 180,000 users nationwide.

A part of SM Lifestyle Entertainment, Inc., (SMLEI), Blink Now is focused on providing the best entertainment content and customer experience, and the company required a sophisticated video technology provider with a powerful analytics solution to help them understand their audience's habits across its subscription-based (SVOD), transaction-based (TVOD) and ad-supported video services (AVOD).

Ooyala’s analytics ties our business decisions to our audience’s desires, giving us the confidence to know what we build is what they want most. When considering our options in the market, Ooyala stood out as they are the only video solutions provider with a comprehensive set of modern-day technologies. Backed by a local team for support and services, Ooyala immediately solved multiple challenges from reliable live streaming, audience measurement, premium content delivery and holistic ad-campaign management.”
SMLEI Assistant Vice President of Digital Media and Head, Francis Gerard R. Tupaz.

With Ooyala IQ, Blink Now has access to up-to-the minute analytics to see what content is trending at any given time, allowing them to feature well-performing content to attract even higher viewership. Real-time multi-dimensional reports gives Blink Now granular insights to track engagement over any period of time across all properties or even individual videos. The data helps ensure they are reinvesting in highly-profitable content for the business based on its audience's’ viewing behaviors.

Using Ooyala Pulse, the customer can see how ad-loads affect drop-off and completion rates against varying content lengths. This allows them to tailor the right amount of ads to every piece of content to maximize monetization without sacrificing user experience.

"Blink Now is a great example of a modern entertainment customer in need of Integrated Video Platform solutions. With our technologies, they can grow in tandem with its audience’s appetite for video and with the industry. With our analytics, they now have the insights to see how audiences watch Hollywood titles versus globally-recognized TV episodes differently, what content is driving them the most money and how their audiences prefers to pay for and access content across devices.”
Ooyala General Manager of Asia-Pacific, Steve Davis.

Ooyala will be showcasing its Integrated Video Platform (IVP) solutions at the 2017 NAB Show and APOS 2017.
