SeaChange delivers IPTV to Russian broadband provider
Moscow-based broadband provider Corvette Telecom is launching a new IPTV service that is built upon technology and content services from SeaChange International and its subsidiary, On Demand Group.
Corvette’s IPTV service, branded “City TV,” is using a TV package with the modular software, hardware and services of the SeaChange TV Platform. The service will initially provide customers on its 300,000 homes-passed Moscow network with on-demand access to content, including Hollywood feature films and independent titles as well as music, children’s and lifestyle programming.
SeaChange’s TV Platform, which debuted at IBC2006, includes modular components to manage every aspect of IPTV, from on-demand and broadcast services to mobile video and other convergence applications. It is built on an architecture that is open to industry standards to enable incremental plug-and-play of third-party components and services. Operators can run with the individual TV Platform pieces (TV Business System and Axiom Core software; TV Navigator Four middleware, EPG and client applications; VOD storage and streaming; and content acquisition) to complete their infrastructure, or, like Corvette, roll out the entire suite for a turnkey business.
