Its SmartTUBE5 Server and SmartMEDIA Content Delivery System was integrated with Baltcom’s existing IPTV infrastructure, with deployed set-top boxes provided with an updated user interface.
SmartTUBE5 UI and applications were also provided for the new fully branded SML-5010 STB, iOS and Android mobile phones and tablets as well as a PC portal. Every UI and application offers content search, three language support and viewing handover from application to STB.
Commenting on the development, Baltcom COO Dmitrijs Nikitins: “We are happy to introduce third generation Interactive TV based on Smartlabs solution. Baltcom now has a modern, flexible, attractive and very efficient platform which directly supports our strategic targets.”
SmartLabs CEO Mikhail Grachev added: “The new solution from SmartLabs has made Baltcom TV-service modern and convenient – introducing multiscreen, catch-up tv and the new beautiful interfaces and STBs! And all these new services are accessible on Baltcom’s already deployed STBs. Needless to say, it is important for the operator to get a new modern solution while preserving the investments already made and SmartLabs have a proven track record of making this happen.”
