Azure’s compatibility with open source CentoOS and Ubunutu help MultiDub deliver entertainment in any language


Founded in 2015, Spanish startup MultiDub is enriching the entertainment experience with their new mobile application. MultiDub is a disruptive technology that enables cinema lovers to enjoy their favorite movies, in any language, no matter the platform or country where they are located. Users simply synchronize MultiDub’s app with the movie in screen, then choose the dubbing in the language of their choice. It does not matter if the movie or series have already started, or if you are at home or in the cinema. Users receive the dubbing dialogues through their earphones, fully synchronized with the action on the screen and MultiDub’s interference reduction techniques quickly allow them to experience their entertainment in the language of their choice.

A Microsoft BizSpark member, MultiDub utilizes the Azure platform for all of their technological needs. The company’s decision to use Azure was rooted in its usability and scalability, says CEO Juan Gabarrón. “We use FiWare’s Orion Context Broker, KeyRock IdM, Cosmos Big Data Analysis and other generic enablers. In order to implement support for these technologies we needed cloud infrastructure that could respond well to multiple concurrent petitions, the only platform able to adequately handle our workload was Azure.” 

In addition to scalability and reliability, MultiDub decided to leverage Azure for its compatibility with a variety of open source software, including CentOS and Ubuntu. “We are running CentOS and Ubuntu for security and to work in aggregation with Orion Context Broker. Azure has made integration seamless and painless” says Gabarrón.
