Verizon Digital Media Services Names SnapStream Official Transition Partner for Volicon Observer

April 4, 2019

LOS ANGELES & HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 4, 2019--Verizon Digital Media Services today named SnapStream the official transition partner for the Volicon Observer broadcast monitoring and compliance product. In January, Verizon Digital Media Services announced the end-of-sale of the appliance-based solutions in an effort to focus continued development on future solutions that better align with industry trends and market needs during the ongoing migration to IP and streaming video workflows. This agreement provides a support path for Volicon’s customers.

As a part of this agreement, Volicon customers with active support contracts may now use SnapStream to provide extended Volicon support into 2020. Volicon customers with lapsed support contracts also are eligible for extended Volicon support from SnapStream.

Following extended support, Volicon customers will have the option of transitioning to SnapStream’s broadcast monitoring and compliance product. SnapStream will be demonstrating its broadcast monitoring and compliance features at NAB 2019 April 8-11 in South Upper Hall booth #SU9802.

“Volicon and SnapStream have always had strong mutual respect,” said SnapStream CEO Rakesh Agrawal. “We have similar products with overlapping features and even have many common customers. SnapStream is known, among other things, for the great support we provide, and we look forward to providing the same high-quality support to Volicon customers. We hope to eventually earn the business of current Volicon customers by converting them into SnapStream customers.”

“Verizon Digital Media Services is committed to providing high-quality products and services for our customers. The partnership with SnapStream will provide Volicon Observer customers with a dedicated support team at the highest level of commitment to ensure continued success in their business operations,” said Peter Gallagher, COO of Verizon Digital Media Services.
