Vivendi has developed a series of digital and mobile services, closely aligned with new media consumption patterns, notably to give larger access to its content.
Vivendi owns 90% of Dailymotion, one of the leading video platforms in the world with a reach of 300 million unique users per month globally. Now focusing on premium video sourced from trusted international content providers, Dailymotion has pivoted to become the go-to place where users can get their daily dose of must-see videos covering their favorite topics – News, Sport, Music, and Entertainment. The “new” Dailymotion comes in the shape of a completely redesigned user experience, along with innovative monetization services to further attract world-class partners and build its audience.
In a “mobile first” environment where video consumption on mobile devices is growing rapidly, Vivendi Content, aimed at creating new content formats, and Canal+, have brought a response to the expectations arisen from these new consumer behaviors by creating in 2016 Studio+, a totally new business which develops and produces original premium content dedicated to smartphones and tablets. Short series (typically 10 x 10 minutes) are produced in six languages and are currently available in France, Italy and throughout Latin America, with further countries to be launched shortly.
In France, myCanal lets subscribers watch all of the content on Canal+ and in the Canal bouquet, either live or on-demand, and access all of the related services through a single point of entry on any device (PC, MAC, smartphones and tablets). The service is innovative-driven. It offers content in multilingual versions and HD adaptive bitrate streaming for guaranteed optimum viewing regardless of bandwidth quality; live stream control; start-over to go back up to eight hours before the broadcast; download management to watch content offline; assistance and the ability to customize screens.
