It’s the latest example of how interoperability with our partners’ solutions is helping Thomson Video Networks build momentum in the WebTV and OTT markets and paving the way for future solutions, such as upcoming advances in our HEVC offerings.”

Thomson Video Networks’ Vibe VS7000 has brought a new level of performance and reliability that enables premium picture quality to be delivered in the same way as traditional broadcasting systems,” said Jussi Komonen, COO, Aspiro TV.
