Nagra has announced the launch of OpenTV Signature Edition, the company’s new, turnkey, cloud-based and multi-tenant solution for pay-TV operators.
Powered by the OpenTV Suite and the Nagra Insight data analytics platform, OpenTV Signature Edition is an ecosystem for pay-TV operators. It will be demonstrated at this year’s IBC.
“OpenTV Signature Edition hails a new era in the delivery, deployment and operation of pay-TV services and is designed to be at the forefront of customer satisfaction in both the services offered and the user experience it delivers,” said Holger Ippach, SVP Middleware & Multiscreen for Nagra.
“It is the pay-TV solution for the new cloud economy, providing pay-TV operators with the foundation to deliver a feature-rich, next-generation service while allowing them to maximize their content investment through new monetization capabilities. For consumers, it enables new customer journeys, blending traditional and modern paths to content that viewers today have come to expect. It benefits from the very latest in UI development and features so that all consumers can enjoy their favorite programs on any device, and discover new content they may not have thought of otherwise thanks to a new take on recommendations.”
The OpenTV Signature Edition leverages all the components of the OpenTV Suite – the OS, Platform, Experience and Player – along with pre-integrated set-top box hardware and a broad third-party and content network.
Content search can be achieved through keyboard, voice or smartphone. Recommendations are either delivered traditionally through deeper analytics or innovatively with simple innovative search mechanisms that lead customers to content they may not have otherwise thought of. The EPG also brings a new level of additional features, such as personalized content channels, linearized SVOD and VOD channels.
