Latens unveils ECO updates16 March 2010
Latens has unveiled the latest update to Latens ECO, its next generation solution for pay-TV operators at the IPTV World Forum.
Built on open standards, ECO is a highly customisable service delivery platform, allowing Telcos to adapt the platform to their unique competitive demands and to continue to innovate as their business develops. ECO is already deployed worldwide with key features such as OTT TV services, DVR, remote DVR, and Home Networking.
ECO enhancements include alpha-blending graphics over live TV, advanced third party applications, and greater User Interface (UI) customisation and configuration options for operators. The fully-flexible UI provides a significantly higher quality of experience to IPTV viewers with richer content, advanced graphics and an enhanced EPG.
The ECO platform update enables the integration of advanced applications from third party partners. Partners such as Accedo and Systemagic can build exciting applications including interactive games and social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc) which can be seamlessly integrated with the core user interface.
“The latest enhancements to the ECO UI provide operators with a more customisable, fully flexible and configurable user interface. Latens continues to develop the ECO service delivery platform to meet the rapidly evolving requirements of Telcos and Cable operators,” said Philip Cardy, Latens product marketing director. “The ECO system sets new standards in the viewer experience with greater scalability, performance and application integration to meet the needs of rapidly growing IPTV operations worldwide.”
