YouSee to extend OTT to main screen with Netgem

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.”
