Lattelecom to expand multiscreen services with Thomson

Latvian telco Lattelecom has installed Thomson’s ViBE VS7000 multiscreen video platform for its IPTV service.

The 10RU system provides encoding for Lattelecom’s new range of web and mobile TV services, as well as standard definition, HD, and 3D IPTV offerings. Local distributor Hannu Pro provided installation and systems integration services for the project.

Installed at Lattelecom’s data center in Riga, the Thomson Video Networks ViBE VS7000 supports up to 30 new multiplatform video services. Lattelecom plans to expand the offering to include up to 100 web and mobile TV channels in the near future.

“As we prepared to launch our new IPTV and multi-platform service offerings, we needed to upgrade our previous video encoding systems in order to provide our Web and mobile customers with the best possible viewing experience. We also needed a cost-effective solution that could easily grow and expand with our business,” said Maris Petrovskis, new technology department head, Lattelecom. “With its superb image quality, simple operation, and maximum flexibility, the ViBE VS7000 has easily met all of our requirements. And, through Hannu Pro, we can count on local access to a high level of support and service.”
