NEO is a next-generation of home entertainment platform owned by Telekom Slovenije. It was launched in late 2018 and enables its users the option of managing TV/web content and smart home devices from one place, using voice commands in their native language (for now NEO understands Slovenian and English language). Telekom Slovenije was already using Bitmovin’s technology for its TVIN OTT service and, based on its impressive functionality and capabilities, it selected its Player and Analytics tool also for NEO.
“Innovative technologies are central to our ability to provide best customer experience. Bitmovin has some of the most disruptive products on the market and helps us offer our users a truly differentiated experience. The Bitmovin Player ensures that we deliver high-quality streams to any device while still adhering to the Hollywood grade content protection standards that broadcasters and studios require. The Player is also fully flexible, making it easy for additional features to be built onto the framework and removing the need for us to heavily invest in our own solutions. We also use the Analytics tool to monitor playback and make real-time decisions that optimise the quality of our service. The standard of technology and the level of support we receive from Bitmovin has been nothing short of exceptional, and they are one of the reasons why we have retained our competitive edge.”
