Trans7, Indonesia’s major leading broadcaster, has partnered with Grabyo to evolve its social and digital video strategy and grow audience engagement beyond TV.
Trans7 is the home of news, entertainment and sports in Indonesia. It is the official broadcaster of MOTOGP (2006-present), FIFA World Cup 2018 under TRANSMEDIA and Indonesia Open (2008-2018). The country is firmly a mobile and social first market, with consumers spending more than 4hrs per day on mobile internet and 3hrs per day on social media.
Indonesia added 24m new social media users in 2018, the third highest increase globally, with a total of 130m Facebook users and 53m Instagram users. To meet the needs of this fast-growing, digitally-savvy audience, Trans7 will transform its social, mobile and OTT video strategy using Grabyo’s cloud-based video platform.
Capturing digital audiences in today’s market is more challenging than ever. Consumers expect to access high-quality content on any device, at any time. Broadcasters, rights holders and publishers must deliver tailored viewing experiences across all of the platforms where consumers spend their time.
Video engagement peaks when content is live and Trans7 will take advantage of Grabyo’s browser-based clipping tools to deliver real-time clips and live video in seconds.
