OpenTV has announced it has been selected by MultiChoice South Africa for the deployment of digital video recorder and push video on demand services on the DStv platform.
Multichoice is to move to the OpenTV Core2 middleware and OpenTV PVR2 software. It will continue to use Irdeto conditional access services. The OpenTV technology will also be used to support high definition TV services, digital video recorder (DVR/PVR), video on demand (VOD), and high definition (HD) services.
“OpenTV has been one of our key partners in our efforts to offer advanced services and improve the overall user experience,” said Nolo Letele, CEO MultiChoice South Africa. “We are excited about the new applications supported by OpenTV Core2 and OpenTV PVR2, as well as the other applications and upgrades that will provide customers with new ways to enjoy their video services.”
