The interactive TV platform provider Beenius has acquired Castoola, a platform based on HbbTV technology, for an undisclosed fee.
Beenius’ interactive TV platform offers IPTV, OTT and DVB-X solutions on Linux and Android STBs and smart devices. With Castoola, it can now also offer HbbTV features on supported devices, all from the same system.
Furthermore, it is also possible for operators to leapfrog into modern TV offerings on legacy systems with this feature-proofed TV solution. Beenius and Castoola can provide the most advanced interactive TV solutions and E2E systems for all HbbTV and IP-enabled devices.
Filip Remskar, CEO at Beenius, said: “The magic for our customers will not only happen by offering standard industry features, but by enhancing our solutions with advertising. We will enable our customers enriched TV advertising, and will continue striving to change the business model and value chain for their prosperity.”
Beenius will be present at ANGA.COM, from June 12-14 in Cologne, at stand S60 in Hall 8.
