Yes believes it will be the first operator in the world to deliver broadcast-equivalent latency.
This contract between the two parties is an extension of Yes’s long-standing relationship with Synamedia as it phases out its DTH satellite service and moves to all-IP by 2026, underpinned by Synamedia’s Infinite cloud
platform, security solutions and services, as well as its video network technologies.
Commenting on the development, Itzhak Elyakim, VP Engineering and CTO at Yes, said: “After a competitive tender, we selected Synamedia to help us transition fully to IP and deliver on our feature-rich roadmap – including our commitment to match broadcast latency, delivering an exceptional subscriber experience. Only Synamedia offered an
end-to-end solution able to meet all of our requirements, ensuring we avoided the need to integrate any third-party products”.
Yves Padrines, CEO at Synamedia, added: “Yes has always been at the forefront of innovation. With its bold decision to offer carrier-grade streaming services with world-beating low latency, Yes is yet again breaking new ground. And, by using our Infinite cloud TV platform, Yes is benefiting from streamlined operations and reduced operational costs as subscribers enjoy high-quality streaming services packed with many new features”.
