Business Objectives

India’s one of the leading movie rights distributors wanted to build a highly scalable OTT platform for movie theaters and individuals. For remotely distributed small screen theatres, the goal was to create a robust, secure and scalable movie distribution platform which should be managed using a simple web admin. Movies were supposed to be distributed to custom Android STB(set-top boxes) on weekly basis.

Security
Content security was the key to everything.
Reliability
The system should work in all network conditions.
Custom Apps
Build highly orchestrated custom Android apps for STBs.
