Estonian cable group Starman has tapped SeaChange to supply the technology for its new OTT video service.

Starman is using SeaChange’s Adrenalin multiscreen video platform to provide a library of on-demand movies and TV shows, with features including re-start TV and network DVR.

Starman launched on-demand TV services in Estonia with a prior version SeaChange Adrenalin platform in 2012.  The company will use the new Adrenalin platform to provide OTT multiscreen services across its other group companies. Starman owns Lithuanian cable operator CGates.

“Our early partnership with SeaChange enabled us to fully capitalize on our cable infrastructure to first bring on-demand TV services to our national market.  Today, SeaChange’s consistent focus on innovating for the back office brings new value by helping us bridge our operations to the rapidly growing IP tier and reliably extend our offering to consumers in other Baltic nations,” said Jaanus Erlemann, CTO, Starman.

“Starman’s latest service introductions show how traditional TV providers are benefitting from a unified back office that enables video business growth across networks, devices and into new geographies, and keeps them ahead of subscribers’ quickly evolving expectations,” said Rochus Schreiber, SVP EMEA, SeaChange.
