Smartlabs, the leading provider of service delivery platforms, has teamed with a global media services provider, Red Bee Media, to announce a new partnership, introducing a solution made to improve the streaming video experience for telcos, ISPs, and content providers.

Smartlabs is the provider of innovative streaming video content solutions for telcos, ISPs, and content providers. With over 7 million active subscribers and over 15 years of experience in the TV market, Smartlabs is dedicated to finding new ways to grow revenue generated by their customers’ video services.

Red Bee Media is an industry leader in providing exceptional EPG metadata. Their data and images improve any user experience and enhance the look of applications, while their metadata helps Smartlabs' search engine to quickly locate the user's desired content, keeping them satisfied and minimizing customer churn rates.

Red Bee Media’s EPG metadata is incorporated into the Smartlabs hosted trial platform, allowing SmartLabs to showcase their platforms while exposing potential customers to the quality of Red Bee Media's metadata. This relationship has already resulted in positive outcomes such as the recent signing of a new operator customer in the United States. Moreover, Red Bee Media's metadata is an essential part of our Canadian customer’s platform, and the two companies have maintained a strong partnership for several years.

With the vast contribution from Red Bee and the innovative solutions of Smartlabs, this collaboration is promised to become the next solution for interactive digital video content, changing the way audiences consume video and providing an enhanced user experience.

Both companies are committed to providing the best possible solutions, with enhanced features and excellent customer service. This partnership will lead to an innovative and unique experience that will revolutionize the way viewers access television content.” - Jason Marchese, Head of Sales, Market Area Americas says.

The combination of Smartlabs' personalized SDPs and Red Bee's comprehensive metadata helps deliver an all-around better streaming experience, with accurate and reliable content that is up to date and easily accessible.
