Always the ones to stay ahead of the curve, Vuclip, powered by a humble 500-strong workforce that believes in the potential of innovation and originality, has emerged as one of the forces to be reckoned with, in the world of OTT entertainment.
A mix of Viu’s telecast content, streaming and download features, localized user interfaces, is propelled by Vuclip’s robust AI, ML, cutting edge tech stacks, advanced algorithms, and the patented Dynamic Adaptive TranscodingTM technology, to ensure smooth, unbuffered viewing experiences regardless of device or network conditions.
