Danish cable operator YouSee has selected technology from connected home specialist Netgem to bring its OTT service to TV sets.
YouSee will deploy Netgem’s N7700 hybrid set-top box and middleware to deliver its services, including its OTT VOD platform, to any customer with a fixed or mobile broadband connection. The device is equipped with a cable tuner and hybrid capabilities to give YouSee the option to offer products whether off-net or on-net, Netgem said.
Anders Blauenfeldt, executive vice-president, innovation and IT at YouSee, said: “The key consideration for us is to bring content to the big screen and be able to attract a broader mainstream audience to web TV on-demand services. Netgem was able to meet these requirements and offers proven experience in deploying hybrid OTT services for a range of customers, so we are looking forward to the relationship in the coming years.”
Netgem will be exhibiting at IBC on Stand 5.B45
