As they were launching their new Intranet based on Microsoft SharePoint technology, GRDF wished to develop their audiovisual communication thanks to a schedule of programmes built upon a variety of regular broadcasts that can be viewed on a Web TV. We Love Gaz TV is the name of this Web TV which has been entirely redesigned and integrated into their Intranet. GRDF, leader in gas distribution in France and Europe, chose Opsomai for this project.
he Web TV is broadcasted using HTTPS protocol to secure the access. To ensure accessibility to mobile phones and tablets, the streaming to mobile devices uses HLS so that the video bitrate is dynamically adjusted depending on the available speed of connection at a given time. Moreover, Opsomai relies on their partner Limelight Networks' Content Delivery Network services to optimize the broadcasting of the Web TV all around the world.
The programmes of We Love Gaz TV can be subtitled thanks to our partner Authôt's services and to our editing interface. Opsomai's Rich Media player offers to choose the subtitles and fragments the timeline so as to give direct access to the component TV programmes such as TV news. GRDF can directly integrate the videos into their Intranet webpages and to their different websites using the exportable version of the player. Users are offered the possibility to like the videos and the numbers of views and likes are displayed on the thumbnails of the videos. Last but not least, the administrators have access to advanced viewing statistics showing, in particular, the viewing time for each video.
