Httv teams up with Quadrille for push-VOD

Hybrid TV technology specialist httv has teamed up with push video-on-demand specialist Quadrille to offer a push VOD platform for retail and pay TV markets.

Under the terms of the Partnership, httv and Quadrille will integrate their respective products: httvStream, httvLink and QuadriFast.

httvLink is an open-middleware solution for connected TV set-top boxes. Based on Linux and HTML5, it is compatible with the HbbTV standard. httvStream is httv’s HbbTV compliant play-out headend server.
