Encompass Digital Media announced a global partnership with Fastly to create an end-to-end OTT and multiscreen content playout and delivery platform. Encompass will incorporate Fastly's media and streaming video delivery capabilities for broadcasters, studios, networks, content owners and aggregators into its OTT solution.

"When video fails to load or takes too long to buffer, users are more likely to abandon video services, leading to deteriorating opportunities for audience growth and monetization," said Chris Walters, Encompass CEO. "Viewers expect high-quality content where and when they want it, along with an optimal viewing experience. Partners such as Fastly allow us to continually improve our live and on-demand video experience for end users across web and mobile devices, ultimately adding value to our clients."

"Delivering secure, high-quality video content to today's viewers requires immense scale and deep understanding of the end-to-end video ecosystem. Fastly's ability to minimize time to first frame (TTFF) and the number of playback interruptions results in improved viewing experiences across every screen while reducing the total cost of delivery," said Sean Leach, Fastly SVP of Product. "Partnering with Encompass leverages Fastly's technology and global network to provide seamless video delivery to customers around the world."
