The solution will provide Cable Networks and Internet Service Providers a complete and flexible service platform for delivering customised TV experiences, and will be launched at ANGA COM 2018 in Cologne later this month.
“As Swisscom Broadcast we are proud that we can now offer our services to Cable Operators and ISP’s that want to have no worries about technology, but want to stay ahead in features for their customers. With the TVaaS 2.0 launch Swisscom Broadcast will be equipped to handle current and on-going transformations of the industry, and meet the rapidly changing requirements”, said Olivier Anthamatten, Head of Business Development, Swisscom Broadcast.
One of the ways in which the service will achieve this is using an open technology provided by the Nordija software platform fokusOn.
“I believe Swisscom Broadcast has made the right move to accelerate their TV-as-a-Service offering. Combining their powerful Swisscom back-end with the flexibility of the Nordija front-end has created the ultimate combination of stability and versatility. The openness of this solution based on HTML-5 gives the customer the necessary tools to stay relevant and to keep developing”, said CCO at Nordija Jeroen van Vliet.
The TVaaS 2.0 is an end-to-end solution from TV signal delivery, HTML-5 User interfaces, cloud nPVR to delivery to all major devices – including hybrid set-top boxes. The customer can choose over 600 national and international channels, and will have direct access to a cloud storage including an advanced Replay store with more than 100.000 assets.
