Bedrock Powers France’s New Streamer Salto


Bedrock, the tech joint venture between M6 Group and RTL Group, is powering Salto, the new streaming platform that launched in France this week.

The joint venture between TF1, France Télévisions and M6 is utilizing Bedrock’s complete streaming end-to-end solution to deliver 20 live channels—including catch-up services and sports—and an SVOD catalog with 10,000-hours-plus of content, tapping into its cloud-based system for content management and video playback. Salto is also utilizing Bedrock’s back-office and data tools to provide personalization, and a user interface that delivers a unified experience across multiple platforms. The Bedrock solution also provides payment capabilities and customer relationship management, among other features.

Jonas Engwall, CEO at Bedrock, noted, “Bedrock is one of a few European streaming-tech companies with the scale and expertise needed to deliver a user experience on par with the global streaming giants. We are proud to power such a unique SVOD platform as Salto and we look forward to a long and fruitful partnership.”

Thomas Follin, CEO at Salto, added, “Bedrock’s technology empowers Salto to become a powerful streaming service pushing the TV experience forward. Our partnership allows us to rely on Bedrock’s best-in-class streaming technology with promising potential.”
