Teleste launches new Luminato module

Cable technology supplier Teleste is to introduce a new application module to its Teleste Luminato headend platform. The module is a complete Linux computer that provides an open platform for application development and enables development of homegrown applications to the Luminato headend, according to Teleste.

As an integral part of  the headend, the module makes it possible to code headend applications for various needs and application areas,  including remote management, stream analysis, Near Video on Demand, CA Server and more.

As an example, hospitality operators could code an application to deliver Internet radio and video channels to a hotel TV or develop a messaging application that allows them to deliver emergency alerts and notifications to TV screens in guest rooms and public areas.

Different types of EPG applications are possible, as shown by Teleste’s own EPG module that addresses the needs of easy and flexible EIT information gathering and management.

“In order to answer their customers’ expectations of supreme TV and video services, service providers need video headend solutions that meet the various demands flexibly and efficiently. As a part of our complete headend solution, the Teleste Luminato, Teleste now wishes to take headend development even a step further and offer service providers a means to address their case-by-case requirements,” said Pasi Järvenpää, SVP of Research and Development for Teleste. “Introducing open application development to headends also opens up new possibilities for all those developers who pro-actively search for visionary solutions for future TV and video services.”

Teleste will exhibit at IBC on stand 4.B61
