In the dynamic landscape of media and content distribution, the demand for efficient and speedy FAST channel playout and distribution models has never been greater. Kapang, a leading player in the industry, has taken a significant leap forward by partnering with technology specialist View TV to create a groundbreaking solution that suits niche and national broadcasters alike.
This innovation aims to empower content distributors and channel brands to create and establish FAST Channels on Kapang swiftly and seamlessly using broadcast-grade technology with no capital expenditure whilst avoiding steep committed monthly fees with no tech provider penalties if it fails to deliver.
Kapang also provides a seamless way of distributing the FAST Channels to various platforms using the same unified reporting dashboard, while ensuring premium ad fill without any fixed playout or distribution connect fees.
The channel technology is only charged when the channel is being watched, making FAST Playout as easy as AVOD.
The Need for Speed – FAST Channels are about to hit the sound barrier
Traditional channel playout and distribution models often involve multiple suppliers, cumbersome processes, extended timelines, and substantial costs. In an era where content is king, the ability to launch channels rapidly can be a game-changer for both established brands and emerging players in the media industry. Recognizing this need, Kapang and View TV have collaborated to develop a cutting-edge solution that streamlines the entire process, from channel creation to distribution whilst empowering the content brands all billed as the channel is watched.
Is this not just Free FAST Channel Playout?
No, this is not Free FAST Channel Playout. Kapang is not providing Free Playout it is merely displaying the confidence in its tools to bill channels when they are watched and generating income whilst having confidence that the channels are being constructed using a premium solution with all of the key elements to ensure FAST monetization is maximised.
Kapang has spent a lot of time working with channels with cheapened sudo playout solutions that fail to deliver the correct format of metadata and fail to deliver continuity and quality due to their lack of confidence in generating any revenues.
As more than half of the FAST Channel playout solutions fail to meet the grade of television services expected by audiences and advertisers and they even charge upto $1,000 per platform to deliver the sub-parr channel to Kapang.
Kapang thought it would be more effective to invest time and funding into providing a broadcast-grade solution that all channels could afford to maximise the revnues from their content library and channel brand.
With View TV and Kapang they get game changing solution without having to justify high fixed charges refocusing their energy on channel brand, channel curation, content marketing and content creation or aquisition.
With Kapang enabling the affordability of great technology and working as a team, the rewards around the joint effort are exponentially higher than any of the existing solutions on the market.
