Nagra announced it is providing a new OTT platform for multi-system cable operator Taiwan Broadband Communications (TBC).
Powered by Nagra’s OpenTV Suite, TBC’s new OTT service – TBC Go – will give both cable and broadband TBC customers “on-the-go” access to live TV on open devices and to more advanced features such as VOD. TBC Go is expected to be commercially available to TBC subscribers this month.
“Nagra has been a key partner since 2015 in helping us roll out our newly digitized platform and enable new services like our OTT platform,” said TBC chief executive officer Jimmy Chen. “Their tightly integrated solutions provide fast time-to-market.”
Stéphane Le Dréau, senior VP of Sales and Services APAC at Nagra, said the new service helps TBC extend customer access both inside and outside the home.
“With the OpenTV Suite, TBC has an OTT solution that is widely used by operators around the world and gives them a launchpad for new services and extended monetization opportunities,” he said.
The OpenTV Suite is a set of integrated and optimized TV components – OpenTV Experience, OpenTV Platform, OpenTV OS and OpenTV Player – designed to facilitate and simplify access to digital media content on multiple viewing devices and deliver clear operational advantages of deployment speed, performance, service innovation, scalability and monetization.
Nagra – a Kudelski Group company – will be demonstrating its OpenTV solution at ConnecTechAsia /CommunicAsia 2018 in Singapore near the end of this month.
