Stockholm, Sweden, 3rd September 2012 – SF Anytime has selected Neon Stingray as supplier for both their back end infrastructure as well as the complete range of applications for connected devices.

The back end infrastructure is based on Neon Stingray’s VOD Manager, which is a platform that allows cost effective operation of VOD services. It provides an automated process and work flow from license creation, content ingest, meta-data editing, product and offer creation through to delivery.

The applications for connected devices are based on Neon Stingray’s Player Platform, which is a toolbox of apps for popular connected devices, plus server-side components exposing a flexible service interface that serves the catalogue to clients and provides a commerce service, as well as user repository.

“We have worked very successfully with Neon Stingray as our main technology partner for several years now. Together we launched the SF Anytime OnDemand service on web, tablet, and several connected TV platforms. We also deployed Neon Stingray's VOD product suite which made our operations more cost efficient and increased our ability to control and monetize our OnDemand catalogue”, commented Fabian Bonnier, CTO, SF Anytime.

“SF Anytime has been the leading VoD provider in Scandinavia for a very long time, and we are proud and thrilled to work with SF Anytime to develop front-end applications as well as technology solutions that underpins its overall consumer offering”, commented Patrik Molander, CTO, NeonStingray.
