OTT Software Overview
What is OTT Software?
OTT stands for "over-the-top," and describes streaming media services that have been made available over the Internet, bypassing traditional delivery methods like cable or satellite. Most commonly used to describe streaming video and television programs, OTT may also describe other communication or media services delivered over the Internet (e.g. VoIP, OTT messaging). OTT software comprises a host of tools, applications, and services that enable content creators and publishers to distribute OTT media, and monetize it. While Netflix presently represents the largest provider of OTT services, the number of options are proliferating.

- API access for ancillary tools
- SDK or development toolkit for designing player, optimizing for playback on various devices (e.g. mobile devices)
- Multi-service integration (e.g. integrating chat or messaging into video, etc.)
