DataArt Announces the Release of Octopus Video Platform

Sponsored by Businesswire

DataArt, a global technology consultancy that designs, develops and supports unique software solutions, today announced the release of a new video sharing and live streaming platform that can easily be customized to fit each client’s unique needs.

The COVID-19 pandemic, associated quarantine and need for continued social distancing have vastly increased the demand for video sharing and streaming. This demand is expected to continue growing in the foreseeable future.

To meet the rising demand and find the optimal method to deliver video content, many companies are experimenting with alternative streaming options, which can be expensive and unwieldy, and offer little in the way of customization. Moreover, they provide companies with little control over their own content. Companies can surmount these issues by building systems from scratch, but that can be prohibitively expensive. DataArt’s Octopus platform is designed to offer clients an affordable, fast and reliable video sharing and live streaming platform that can be customized to their specifications.

Octopus provides the base code for a video platform to offer both on-demand and live streaming content. It can be deployed as a standalone platform or integrated into an existing website or application. It works as a white-label solution with modular, pre-built architecture and includes base code that enables all the key features available on popular OTT/VOD platforms. The solution incorporates all popular video sharing features, and clients can save time and money by purchasing only integration and customization services. Octopus is an affordable option that allows companies to quickly acquire a video platform tailored to their own unique needs. Moreover, Octopus can easily be deployed to the most popular Cloud hosting environments, such as AWS, Google Cloud, and MS Azure.

Max Kalmykov, VP Media & Entertainment at DataArt, says, “Video streaming consumption is skyrocketing, with consumers using streaming for both business and entertainment services. In our view, demand for video sharing and live streaming will only continue to grow, and we plan to continue implementing new features that will enhance the platform for clients and improve the already rapid time-to-market.”

With Octopus, clients can have their own platform accessible to them through their Cloud account. Octopus enables a fully customizable user interface and functionality and, most importantly, will allow clients to maintain control over their own content.
