The solution is based on three main elements, namely a cloud-based back-end management software component that allows eliminating on-site system control hardware, an advanced, multi-function set-back-box, and a highly intuitive client software. By deploying it, Foxtel will transform the entertainment and technology experience across hotels, workforce accommodation sites, aged care homes, small medium businesses and pubs and clubs.
Commenting on the development, Malgorzata Boron-Ott, ADB executive VP for business control and special projects, said: “When designing and developing the vuTyme system, our guiding concept has been always to maintain a delicate balance between the needs of a broadcaster such as Foxtel, business establishment operators and the ultimate end-user: a TV viewer.
“I think we have achieved our objective hence we are truly delighted to see such a leading media company as Foxtel choosing our solution.”
Steve O’Connor, group director of commercial premises at Foxtel, added: “Foxtel searched the globe to find the best guest engagement platform for commercial premises and is delighted to develop this technology with ADB for the Australian market. Our first key design principle was ensuring the technology delivered a best in class service and support experience for our customers. The flexible and scalable architecture delivers cloud managed service customisation and integrates with our customers’ brands, operations and systems. Certified, trusted and tested, it’s a smart technology stack for businesses.
“Just as critical is delivering a better than home experience for our commercial customers and their guests. vuTyme enables Foxtel to deliver, for the first time, all of our live and streaming content, any content the business wants to screen; and casting of any content that the user brings with them.
“In this category and commercial market, this is truly the world’s best technology”.
