Austrian cable operator LIWEST has deployed Ocilion’s IPTV solution integrated with Verimatrix security to enable more flexible and future-proof video delivery models.
LIWEST joins Kabelplus and Salzburg AG as the third Austrian operator to select the system offered by Austrian IPTV technology company Ocilion and global video security solutions provider Verimatrix
Facing a rise in streaming, LIWEST modernised its IPTV technology to stay at the forefront of a highly competitive market. In addition to supporting set-top box, tablet and smartphone delivery, the solution provided by Ocilion and Verimatrix enables Amazon Fire TV and Apple TV streaming.
“As Austrian subscriber behaviours shift away from traditional live TV consumption, it has become evident that we need a future-proof IPTV solution to meet the needs of our customers and potential customers,” said Philipp-Thomas Müller, team leader of product management and corporate communication at LIWEST. “Ocilion and Verimatrix presented a one-stop shop solution we could not refuse with the streaming capabilities, on-premise infrastructure and future-proof security we need to stay competitive in today’s modern landscape.”
Hans Kühberger, CEO of Ocilion, added: “I am proud that with LIWEST a truly innovative carrier has chosen our IPTV solution and Verimatrix for resolving complex video security requirements. Users are truly at the centre of the new LIWEST IPTV product Läuft, being able to choose whether to watch their favourite programmes live or time-shifted on their TV via the new 4K set-top box, Apple TV or Amazon Fire TV stick.”
