Massive is a global technology company recognized and awarded for powering the world’s best multiscreen video services. We recently launched Massive AXIS, the industry’s premier Video Application UI Server, bringing a fresh server-side approach to the delivery and control of streamlined video apps across any and all of the major consumer devices.
Fast becoming the industry standard for real-time, multi-device app control, our platform provides the flexibility that high-profile broadcasters, content owners and operators require to dynamically adapt on a daily basis. Its sophisticated visual content programming and navigation management tools are paired with powerful scheduling and subscription management features that are all operated from one easy to use interface. These features present previously unavailable opportunities to acquire and retain audiences and to monetize content more effectively.
We are proud to be known for our thought leadership and a product roadmap that supports the long-term success of so many tier 1 video services. We never stop pushing the boundaries of possibility and are committed to maintaining the personal and dedicated support teams that our customers appreciate and rely upon.
