IBC 2007 (Stand IPTV Zone 233)
Middleware and interactive applications vendor Osmosys will use IBC to launch EGG its new Enhanced Graphics enGine that the company says will deliver a new visually inspiring look and feel that’s streets ahead of the graphical capability of today’s set-top boxes. It will open up exciting new opportunities for channel owners, programme makers, games developers and the advertising community.
Also on show is the Osmosys end-to-end Push VOD system. The vendor said this cost-effective solution offers service providers more value from their IPTV network, generates incremental revenue and efficiently delivers SD and HD content, as Push VOD offers a bandwidth independent means of distributing any form of digital content. In an IPTV environment, that is particularly useful for distributing HD content to subscribers.
Network operators or service providers can define custom catalogues to offer a plethora of content via different payment methods such as pay per view or subscription.
