Levira to originate Swedish Axess TV


Levira AS and Axess Publishing AB of Sweden have signed a five-year service agreement according to which Levira shall provide to Axess Publishing end-to-end technical service to play-out and distribute its channel Axess TV as of March 2015.

Levira’s services for Axess TV cover the whole technical production chain starting from media asset management, ingest, QC, storage, scheduling, linear play-out with live inputs, encoding for broadcast and web-TV, delivery to TV networks in Sweden and publishing on Axess TV website of the linear channel as well as catch-up and VoD content. Levira will also offer Axess TV a channel management tool for macro scheduling and rights management.

Axess TV chose Levira, a leading independent TV play-out service provider in Northern Europe, for the transmission of its TV channel. “Levira has proven itself in the field, and Estonia is not only a pioneer in IT but also well known for its broadcasting solutions. We are very proud that Axess TV has chosen Levira to be its technical partner. It has been a challenging, but interesting process we have gone through together during the service migration. Several new developments that have been implemented for Axess TV shall surely be useful also for our other clients. Several negotiations with potential partners from the Nordics are already underway,” commented Indrek Lepp, Director of Levira’s Media Services Division.

“Levira has been able to deliver a competitive solution, both economically and functionally, and Axess TV sees the partnership as a natural part of continued cooperation in the Nordic-Baltic region” commented PJ Anders Linder, CEO Axess Publishing
