"Olympusat is excited to work with the new Piksel leadership team in a partnership where we can white-label Piksel's market leading OVP solution in the Americas and EMEA. This is a new offering for us, and allows us to bring to market a product with exciting features such as hosting both live and on demand content, deep analytics and an electronic program guide (EPG).
