We shifted our focus entirely on digital last year. We wanted to deliver a better experience for our clients, and build a sustainable solution that would exist with or without our studios open — which led us to Vimeo OTT. We were so hyper motivated to stay connected, we built Y7 Online in about three to four weeks.

OTT FAQ

What does OTT mean?

OTT stands for “over the top,” which means that a content provider is going “over the top” to provide video directly to the consumer. Basically, it’s a fancy way of saying that OTT providers take videos straight to users who want them, without the go-between of using broadcast or cable platforms.

What is OTT platform?

An OTT platform can be any streaming service that supplies content online. The key is that OTT platforms don’t use distributors like broadcast, cable, or satellite platforms. Instead, users can go directly to the OTT platform for the content they want.

How does OTT work?

OTT platforms send content over a high-speed internet connection, as opposed to using traditional distributors like cable or IPTV. This way, users can access the content they want straight from the creator, without having to go through an intermediary. OTT content is typically video and is watched on any device that has an internet connection (and, y’know, a screen).
