Indonesian sports aggregator SuperSoccer was looking to boost
the efficiency of its video streaming workflow, increase scalability,
and improve video quality for its OTT subscription service,
SuperSoccer TV. The goal was simple: to attract new subscribers
and amplify its revenue. Yet, being a relatively new OT T operator,
Super Soccer needed a video infrastructure solution with low risk and
little to no CAPEX investment. Fast time to market for SuperSoccer
TV was also crucial, and, with the Harmonic VOS™ 360 managed
service offering, the provider was able to launch in weeks, rather
than months. In the OT T world, timing is everything. SuperSoccer
streams live football games, including Serie A Italian League and
World Cup qualifying matches, to connected devices such as mobile
phones and tablets. The operator didn’t want fans to miss a second of
the action, so it needed a solution that could be deployed quickly.
In addition to live streaming, SuperSoccer TV subscribers enjoy
video-on-demand highlights and daily news shows. The video
infrastructure solution would also need to support advanced
features like start-over and catch-up TV to enhance the operator’s
Given the projected regional growth in OTT subscribers, the
operator required a video infrastructure solution that was scalable.
Video quality and ease of use were also key priorities.
Ultimately, SuperSoccer decided that choosing a managed
media processing service would minimize CAPEX and deployment
risk. To meet its scalability and rapid time-to-market requirements,
the operator looked to the cloud.
SuperSoccer selected Harmonic’s VOS 360 managed service
( www.vos.tv) to stream live pro soccer matches over the internet
to subscribers in Indonesia. Utilizing the managed service,
hosted on public cloud (IaaS) and maintained and monitored
by Harmonic’s service and support team, SuperSoccer achieved
unprecedented speed, flexibility, and agility for its OT T service.
Today, the operator is streaming over 60 live soccer games a month
in superior HD video quality.
The VOS 360 managed service handles the media processing
and delivery workflow for SuperSoccer TV—including content
contribution, preparation, and delivery over an Akamai CDN for
live and time-shift TV services—enabling its technical staff to
focus on improving the viewing experience. The most significant
advantage that the VOS 360 service provides to SuperSoccer is
efficiency and speed. The operator got the end-to-end service up
and running and fully integrated with the ecosystem components
