New service opportunities9 September 2016
A fully-integrated IPTV platform is being highlighted by Alticast, as well as Android-based set-top box solutions that the company believes can unlock new service opportunities to drive future success.
Alticast is showing how its platform is being used by a leading Vietnamese operator to deliver network PVR, IP-to-tablet delivery and other services, creating deployment models that Alticast claims can be replicated by operators in Europe, APAC and other markets.
The company is also demonstrating how it says its Alticast Application Framework provides the flexibility and versatility operators need to adapt seamlessly to changing market needs – notably, the emergence of Android. Alticast supports Android-based STB solutions as well as RDK, allowing use of native and HTML5 applications and providing a migration path to IPTV.
In addition to IPTV and Android exhibits, Alticast is showing how its middleware and UI enablement has helped Videotron become the first pay-TV operator in Canada to deploy a 4K ultra high-definition set-top box on a commercial basis across an entire market area.
Also on show is the AltiView 3 user interface and other solutions that can provide operators with search, discovery and navigation across linear, on-demand, online and the subscriber’s personal content.
