TELUS and Calgary-based Worldplay Communications have announced a partnership that will allow consumers to stream live community and sporting events or faith-based services online through the Optik TV platform. Businesses will also be able to deliver virtual conferences, connect through secure video solutions, and create branded content pages via Worldplay’s Vidflex, a customizable video platform that provides customers with a digital toolset to host, manage, control, distribute, live stream, catalog and monetize their videos. TELUS and Worldplay piloted the platform last year, hosting 200 municipalities across British Columbia at the first ever CivX Virtual Conference. Since then, Haisla Nation has used the platform for broadcasting Haislakla language revitalization workshops, while Huu-ay-aht First Nations used the software to livestream an all candidates meeting in advance of its election.
