ABOX42 and PerceptionTV have joined forces to provide customers with a complete IPTV/OTT hardware and software solution for international markets. The Perception platform will be integrated into ABOX42’s M series smart set-top box platform and showcased at a number of industry events in 2016.
The integration will be engineered in-house with both parties providing technical expertise to manage and develop the joint offering. The partnership will include a dedicated marketing plan to raise the profile of both companies through joint promotion of each other’s products and services.
The Perception platform delivers a complete, global, OTT multiscreen TV service integrating the four key components of TV: live TV, catch-up TV, video on-demand, and cloud-based PVR.
PerceptionTV’s fully scalable IPTV platform delivers content to any connected device anywhere, anytime. PerceptionTV allows both established TV providers and start-up businesses to launch a branded service within a few months.
Perception also provides the capability to deliver video entertainment services on a global scale utilising its regionalisation and multi-node functionality.
Customers will be able to begin watching TV at home on a traditional TV set and pick up exactly where they left off on a mobile device on the way to work. The ABOX42 set-top box solution is already delivering a complete multiscreen TV solution with partners in the German speaking territory.
“People want to watch programmes and video anywhere, anytime so operators need to be agile enough to deliver this dynamic TV experience,” said John Mills, CEO PerceptionTV. “Our IPTV multiscreen Perception platform can ease the transition, offering an innovative and familiar end-to-end solution quickly and cost effectively. ABOX42 recognises the importance of multiscreen viewing as much as we recognise that there is still a need for a high quality viewing within the home – this partnership ticks both boxes.”
Matthias Greve, CEO ABOX42 added, “For us it is a great step to partner with PerceptionTV, since PerceptionTV is a recognised player in this market on an international basis with vast experience in delivering complete multiscreen propositions to operators. The combination of ABOX42’s set top box platform delivering a feature rich, future proof and secure solution to the first screen, along with Perceptions ability to seamlessly integrate the wireless devices, provides operators with exactly what they need.“
