Comarch unveils IPTV solution for DTH satellite operators
Comarch has released a new IPTV solution intended for Direct-To-Home (DTH) satellite operators that allows them to offer interactive TV services over a telecom infrastructure.
Using Comarch’s solution, DTH and telecom operators can cooperate to offer IPTV together with information services, online shopping and other TV services based on interactivity and high-quality multimedia content.
The new interactive solution is based on the company’s IPTV middleware and components provided by vendors of CAS/DRM, VOD, headend solutions and set-top boxes. With Comarch NGTV middleware, not only can operators provide access to live TV channels and VOD content, they also can deliver third-party interactive TV services, a fully customized user interface and targeted interactive ads.
The Comarch NGTV solution also supports the IPTV Virtual Network Enabler (IPTV-VNE) and Operator (IPTV-VNO) business models allowing Internet portals, content providers/aggregators and other strong non-telco brands to start IPTV services.
