Httv teams with Logiways for VOD to restricted bandwidth networks

Hybrid TV technology provider Httv is to integrate Logiways’ VoDAccess broadband video-on-demand engine into its platform to deliver VOD to terrestrial, satellite, cable and IP networks with limited streaming bandwidth.

Logiways will also use Httv’s firmware to power its broadcast VOD platforms, particularly in emerging markets.
The pair will collaborate on future roadmap features to broaden the base of set-top and chipset options for their customers.

At IBC, Httv and Logiways will demonstrate the range of features including pre-integrated advanced middleware, low-cost scalable VOD headends, card-based and cardless rights protection solutions, remote diagnostics, recommendation and audience measurement.

Jean-Philippe Plantevin, Logiways CEO, said “The opportunity to partner with Httv, one of the true digital TV software innovators, brings significant synergies to both companies’ offers. By pre-integrating together, we are able to offer the market the advantages of low-cost, easy scalability and rapid deployment as well as a future-proof solution.”

Separately, Logiways has chosen Cognik’s CogniKuest recommendation engine to power its next-generation  VodAccess VOD delivery platform for broadcasters and non-linear TV operators.

“Our broadcast customers demand a VoD experience that is as advanced as the traditional services offered by Cable or IP. The integration of Cognik’s proven technology is a major step towards achieving that, by ensuring accurate optimisation of the available content storage on the users’ PVR, and more effective utilisation of broadcast bandwidth.
Our ultimate aim is to deliver only the content that a particular viewer will want to purchase and view, and discreet, automated recommendation is a key driver towards that enhanced TV experience,” said Joel Minot, vice-president of marketing at Logiways.
