IBC 2007 (Stand IPTV Zone 126)
Swedish interactive TV gaming specialist Accedo Broadband will be launching its new IPTV Multiplayer Gaming Engine for IPTV services at IBC. It will allow users to play and interact with each other within a single operator’s network or between different operator’s networks.
In the IPTV Zone, the company will also be demonstrating the latest in HD IPTV gaming, bringing the high image quality from the playstation, xbox and pc to the TV.
“Multiplayer gaming is something that was previously predominantly available with PC and console gaming, but thanks to IP technology, will now be available for a TV audience,” commented Michael Lantz, CEO, Accedo Broadband. He added: “Casual gaming on the TV has already proved to be very popular, and with the addition of the Accedo Multiplayer Gaming Engine, it is our firm belief that usage will grow considerably faster”.
