How it works?

Salix helps OTT video providers (including those that integrate subscription-based and advertising models) level-up their platform customization and quickly launch front-end changes to their audiences. These front-end changes can be easily managed through a self-serve web content management system. In addition to the feature set listed above, Salix supports turnkey integration with IBM’s Cloud Video.

Currently, Salix is working behind-the-scenes to support the video experience for leading for companies like Canadian Broadcasting Company (CBC), Fox News, Fox Sports, HBO, and National Geographic.

Salix vs. The Competitors

Salix offers the flexibility that you don’t have to use every feature available within the platform and it can be highly customized to meet your specific needs.

Implement & Scale

Integrate 3rd Parties with Ease Because Salix is a “make it your own” platform, you have the flexibility to integrate 3rd party apps without compromising the end-user experience of your video service. We have experience integrating platforms that support payment processing, ad serving, customer service, subscription management, and analytics tracking. Adobe Omniture, Google Analytics, ZenDesk and Zuora are just a few of the leading platforms we have successfully integrated with Salix.

Our partnership with IBM Cloud Video as a back-end video content host ensures you can scale not only the user-facing portion of your video platform, but sustain it as you add to your content library.
