Synamedia: video management and delivery

Gorkem Yigit Senior Analyst, Research
Jakub Konieczny Research Analyst

"Synamedia's dual platform strategy and strong service features should help it to regain some ground with traditional pay-TV players that are considering legacy transformation and a move to new OTT services."

Synamedia was formed out of Cisco’s Service Provider Video Software Solutions’ (SPVSS) assets, following the acquisition of SPVSS by Permira, a private equity firm, in October 2018. Synamedia has a strong heritage in the broadcasting, cable and satellite markets. It aims to retain its customers by helping them to evolve their traditional pay-TV systems into IP and cloud, and expand into the broader markets of video service (OTT and D2C) and content provision.
