RLJ Entertainment

Valtira built a set of Microservices to operate RLJ Entertainment's video subscription platform across multiple devices and platforms

RLJ needed a custom API and development services to unite the billing subscriptions and account management, as well as maintain content across multiple channels and business organizations.

COMPANY
RLJ operates several specialized streaming media services and catalog interests in North America, UK and Australia. Its brands include AcornTV, Urban Movie Channel, AcaciaTV, Athena and several others.
NEED
RLJ needed a custom API and development services to unite the billing subscriptions and account management, as well as maintain content across multiple channels and business organizations. They required a robust media platform that would manage media content across multiple channels and devices (mobile, Roku and others). With no suitable existing solutions available, they turned to Valtira to develop this infrastructure from the ground-up.
SOLUTION
We developed a robust platform for media management and the necessary API’s to unite the company’s multiple brands under a single management infrastructure. The system integrates billing and reporting with platforms such as iOS, Samsung SmartTV, Amazon FireTV and Roku. The API and technology used is highly flexible, allowing for the addition of new channels and devices as the company grows. The solution leverages the Valtira's Simplicis platform and Amazon Web Services, providing a hybrid cloud approach that is scalable, secure and cost effective.
