SES will be using coralPlay to further advance its playout solutions and manage a variety of channels, ranging from simple thematic clip playout channels to more complex sports and events broadcasts with a high level of live input and unpredictability. The system is to provide complex graphics insertion including dynamic now/next/later and lower thirds driven from information contained in the playlists, tickers, clocks, and a two-stage DVE. The system also supports SCTE-35 triggering and DVB subtitling.


coralPlay is a next generation playout product that has been designed using microservices and is deployed using Docker™ containers and Kubernetes™. It has been optimized to take advantage of the inherent elasticity, redundancy and flexibility that the cloud offers. In addition, it can be hosted in any public cloud or on a virtual machine or on bare metal servers.


“As we move into a cloud era, we recognize the importance of being able to serve our customers with a cloud-native playout solution, as well as offering services running on premises. coralPlay’s capability to support both is key to ensuring we are equipped to meet our customers’ diverse needs and enable them to reach the widest possible audience and deliver an immersive TV viewing experience,” said Moshe Perez, Head of Product Architecture and Technology Design.


Peter Hajittofi, CEO of added, “SES has been enabling delivery of content for broadcasters around the globe for years, and as they grow their cloud solution offering, we are delighted to be supporting them with our coralPlay playout technology.
