IBC 2015. Hall 5.B48. Cubiware, a Warsaw, Poland based subsidiary of TiVo, have been selected by Supercanal, Argentina’s leading MSO, to provide Middleware for Supercanal’s digitalisation project.
A local partner, Bold, will act as as integrator and VOD service provider. The offering will also include Cubiware’s Portal Server and Multiscreen (CubiGo) applications. Additionally, apart from linear TV, set-top boxes will support over the top and video on demand from FoxPlay and Telecine.
CubiTV features a highly intuitive interface that makes it easy for subscribers to navigate advanced TV functionality. It also includes a revolutionary graphics-rendering engine that delivers fast, sleek menus and program guides with high-quality animation, transitions, and effects. Designed to run on low-power, small footprint DTV and IPTV processors from all major silicon vendors, the STB versions of CubiTV may be deployed on both modern and legacy devices, thereby minimizing the need for hardware replacement.
“Cubiware now serves 13 Latin America countries and there remains a tremendous growth opportunity in the pay-TV and digital media industries in this region. Supercanal in Argentina is at the forefront of that change and Cubiware is thrilled to support their linear and OTT needs in tandem with our partners Conax and Bold,” said Jakub Gorski, Cubiware co-founder.
“We have no doubt that Supercanal is positioned as a leader in technological innovations in the region, and Bold as integrator with their partners Conax and Cubiware, is committed to contribute to the growth to new level of quality and services,” said Ariel R Droyeski, Bold’s Commercial Director.
