Pawa2 - real time, any time
EBS and Viasat World sign major new Amazon channels supply deal
World-leading EPG services provider EBS is pleased to announce a major new supply deal with leading international media company Viasat World. EBS now delivers all VOD metadata for Viasat World’s TV1000 Russian Kino catalogue of films on Amazon Channels across the UK and Germany.

Already Russia’s most popular movie channel, the new OTT and mobile service will give Russian speakers access to an unrivalled selection of Russian language movies from independent and award-winning films to big blockbusters featuring the greatest stars. TV1000 Russian Kino brings an unparalleled collection of Russian language movies to a global audience, distributed with the help of EBS’ powerful metadata and scheduling solution Pawa2. This is the first time that Pawa2 has been used on a web-based VOD channel, highlighting its peerless adaptability in an increasingly fractured marketplace.

“It’s such an exciting time in the industry,” explains EBS Managing Director Keith Bedford. “Consumers have an incredible variety of content at their fingertips, and at least as many choices about how they want to access that content.”

“The TV1000 Russian Kino Amazon channel is the perfect example of this, and we’re really proud that Viasat World has seen the benefits of applying Pawa2 to a service with so much global potential.”
 
Lena Koskela, Head of Planning at Viasat World comments, “Launching TV1000 Russian Kino on Amazon Prime complements our core business. It demonstrates Viasat World’s unique status as an independent company, and our ability to be quick to adopt the best new technologies so we can better serve our partners and our audiences in today's fast changing media landscape.”

Pawa2 allows content suppliers to easily adapt their EPGs to the needs of any distribution platform, anywhere in the world. It ensures that media companies can effortlessly control brand consistency across all outlets, regardless of where and when content is accessed.
 
As well as being a one-stop database for organising and distributing schedules and metadata, Pawa2 is also capable of providing separate libraries for every channel a client operates. This ensures that data always fits a channel identity, and allows broadcasters to manage tailored workflows for both linear and non-linear services internally.
 
“The popularity of Pawa2 says everything that needs saying about it,” Keith adds. “Broadcasters big and small, delivering their content in every way imaginable, trust our solution absolutely to meet all of their workflow requirements.”
