Recognizing the need for innovation, AS STV’s partnership with UniqCast brought forth a compelling solution. UniqCast's hybrid cloud platform was the chosen path, combining origin and edge servers installed onsite with cloud-based middleware, statistics, monitoring, and additional services.

Within days, access to the cloud was granted, expediting billing integration and configuration testing. Concurrently, UniqCast facilitated the installation of the on-site elements, significantly expediting the entire process.
UniqCast's expertise extended to seamless integration with AS STV's Arris Android STBs. With meticulous attention to detail, UniqCast ensured the compatibility and functionality of AS STV's preferred devices. As a result, AS STV's enhanced service was not only ready for launch but primed for optimal performance.
"Throughout the project setup, UniqCast's responsiveness to our inquiries was very important. Their commitment to collaboration as well as their extensive experience with the OTT projects played a pivotal role in the success of our modernization journey," remarked Vladislav Jarantsev, CCO at AS STV.
“From UniqCast's standpoint, the advantages of a cloud-based solution for video streaming services were paramount. The hybrid cloud architecture allowed AS STV to enjoy a synergistic blend of on-premise control and cloud agility. UniqCast recognizes the growing importance of such flexibility in catering to evolving industry demands.” pointed out Darko Robic, CEO of UniqCast
