Press Release

Amsterdam and Apeldoorn, May 25th, 2021Divitel, an innovative independent expert in the field of digital video distribution, joined forces with Ledger Leopard, a leading blockchain enterprise solutions provider, to implement block chain technology to the Divitel’s managed video distribution operational processes.  

The project will be fully operational and ready to market by end of 2022 offering increased flexibility, control, ease of use and speed when managing the access of video distribution ecosystem data, independent of which technology is used.  Divitel video carrier customers will be offered the option to include this blockchain module on top of their ecosystems.
