Accenture Video Solution (AVS) has been chosen as the software to support current and future offerings from BT TV, including BT Sport.

With AVS currently being used by over 60 million users globally, the platform provides numerous services that support both live streaming and video-on-demand.

The latest version of AVS includes:

• A full micro-services-based architecture, that uses software segmentation to enable an accelerated delivery of new video services and features through automated DevOps pipelines.

• Automatic and flexible scalability mechanisms on public and private clouds that optimize infrastructure resource costs according to the real-time number of users accessing the service and watching video.

• Accenture Video Analytics which provide rich and comprehensive real-time reporting, segmentation and statistical analytics that enable the activation of real-time capabilities (e.g. direct marketing, service centres, and enhanced product functionality) based on user profile attributes including device, QoE, granular discovery and consumption interactions, time of day, and location.

Greg McCall, managing director of television and content at BT, said: "With AVS, we have a strategic OTT platform able to rapidly develop and bring new services to market. Importantly, we can scale the platform when we need to, making sure the audience has a seamless viewing experience."

Sef Tuma, Chief Strategy Officer at Accenture Digital Video, added: "We have enjoyed supporting BT's journey over the past few years as they have grown their portfolio and entered new markets.

"To be at the heart of the BT TV architecture is exciting for us, and we look forward to helping them continue to deliver some of the world's most exciting services and programming in this next phase of our relationship."
