Set-top middleware provider Digisoft.tv has integrated S&T’s MHEG-5 engine, RedKey, into its Iris set-top middleware stack.
Digisoft.tv will offer MHEG as a standard part of its DVB based offering. This will include the interaction channel components for IP based return path including information, commerce and IP video delivery services and the DSM-CC object carousel that offers novel broadcast functionality.
Digisoft head of product development Eoin Shanaghy said: “Adding the MHEG standard to our hybrid DVB/IPTV middleware is a natural evolution. By combining our Iris middleware product with S&T’s RedKey MHEG engine, we will offer operators more ways than ever before to deliver content to consumers’ TVs. RedKey also allows us to deliver a unique capability to our customers – the combined delivery of applications based on multiple standards, including HTML5. We believe that this combination will propel Digisoft.tv to become the market leader in the hybrid media and entertainment market for service operators.”
