HIDIVE

Smart OTT goes Anime

  • Client: Sentai
  • Platform: Android, Android TV, Apple TV, iOS, Roku, Xbox one

Sentai Filmworks is an important US-based anime content licensing company; they have been distributing Japanese animation and film for almost 10 years, ranging from classics to new releases, from the most prestigious Japanese production firms. They also have in-house recording and localization studios. Subtitling and audio are key for anime viewers so we have developed an advanced multi-audio and subtitling feature for them, including support for different color fonts for subtitles depending on the content being watched.

Sentai chose 24i to create its video streaming apps for iOs, Android, and Roku. Branded Hidive the service offers the latest anime series straight from Japan.
