WISI delivers HbbTV over IPTV

The blurring of TV and internet together with the emerging HbbTV services is providing a challenge for the futureproofing of TV headends and next-generation networks.

WISI Communications will be demonstrating how this challenge can be handled. The leading provider of reception and distribution solutions will show its next generation headend systems Chameleon and Tangram and its optimised optical platform Optopus.

The newly configured end device for WISI’s Multi Screen Content Management System AiMS combines HbbTV with conventional IPTV for the first time in a demo alongside partner IP.Netcom.

A set-top running DVB-IP will be shown processing and displaying HbbTV functionality and content through multicast TV channels via a IP net.
