Com Hem picks Elemental to deliver linear and multiscreen TV

Swedish operator Com Hem has selected Elemental to unify the delivery of its live linear and multiscreen TV services.

ComHem has chosen Elemental software-defined video processing systems to deliver linear video across cable, IPTV and over-the-top TV networks from a unified headend.

This supports both IP and SDI inputs, with Elemental Live used to simultaneously process live H.264 DVB-C, RTP, and ABR streams for all Com Hem delivery networks.

“Com Hem is committed to offering our customers the best available content and a high level of service. By consolidating our headend with Elemental we are able to meet this commitment across all of our networks and to all types of devices,” said Com Hem chief technology officer, Henri Caddeo.

Com Hem claims that its broadband, television, and telephony services reach approximately 1.92 million households in Sweden including 625,000 digital TV subscribers.
