The Bosnian incumbent BH Telecom has chosen a solution by Beenius to bring its IPTV service Moja TV to Android TV.
The two parties have been working together since 2009 and the continuation of their collaboration for the next five-year TCO period came after an international tender in which six global vendors participated.
Beenius replaced the existing backend system and migrated it to a modern microservices-based architecture enabled by the latest version of the Beenius video platform that equips features such as targeted TV advertising, fingerprinting, thumbnails, and RTSP for on-demand services in the IPTV ecosystem.
In addition, the deployed Linux Set-top Boxes were upgraded with a new version of Beenius’ Linux client.
Commenting on the development, Adnan Huremovic, CTO at BH Telecom, said: “BH Telecom’s long-term cooperation with Beenius has resulted in another successful project upgrade of the BH Telecom’s IPTV service. Through this project, BH Telecom upgraded all elements of the system and significantly expanded the capacities, offered a new UI for IPTV users and introduced Android TV STB for Moja TV service. Since launching the IPTV service, BH Telecom has chosen the best companies on the market at the time and in cooperation with Beenius, Verimatrix and Edgeware solutions have been implemented. We are pleased to continue this long-lasting partnership with these proven companies in the world of IPTV, offering premium service features to our customers”.
Filip Remskar, CEO at Beenius, added:“BH Telecom has been our client ever since the beginning of IPTV, and it has been a pleasure to witness and support their growth and achievements, the latest being bringing IPTV with the Android TV framework to their loyal viewers. I believe the state-of-the-art UI and functionalities of Moja TV will offer their customers a more immersive experience and set a new benchmark in the local market”.
Johan Bolin, CTO at Edgeware, said: “Now is the perfect occasion to celebrate our long-standing partnership with Beenius and BH Telecom, a relationship that dates back to the early days of Edgeware.
“We’re thrilled to continue supporting BH Telecom’s growth and market expansion, as they strive to offer customers the best services available to the market today”.
Asaf Ashkenazi, COO at Verimatrix, added: “We are happy that BH Telecom has upgraded to Verimatrix’s VCAS Ultra utilizing Beenius’ innovative Android TV platform. Providing a premium entertainment experience is critically important in today’s competitive market. BH Telecom’s customers throughout southeastern Europe will now be able to experience next-generation streaming security, performance and scalability”.
