Ziggo to launch cloud-based UI

Dutch cable operator Ziggo is launching an advanced VOD user interface delivered entirely from the network cloud.

Ziggo will use ActiveVideo Networks’s virtual set-top box platform CloudTV to deliver the UI. The initial deployment will include video-on-demand navigation and guide functionality, including enhanced search, discovery and previews, to existing set-top boxes.

“Service providers deploying advanced navigation, guides and other content need long-term, flexible solutions that will support any current or future device,” said Ronald Brockmann, managing director for ActiveVideo Networks in Europe. “The selection of CloudTV will allow Ziggo to deliver rich, engaging services without replacing existing set-top boxes.”
