Luxembourg’s Eltrona taps Ocilion for IPTV

Luxembourg cable operator Eltrona has chosen Ocilion to provide a turnkey IPTV platform including 4K set top boxes, apps, content and video library.

Eltrona, which supplies over 100,000 households and users with its services, will tap Ocilion to provide an IPTV solution including functions such as replay, integrated video library and recording along with channel packages, 4K set top boxes and first and second screen apps designed by Eltrona. The system can be operated in different languages used in the country.

The IPTV platform is hosted on-premise on Eltrona’s servers, which Ocilioin says gives Eltrona freedom and more individuality in its product design. Updates and new functions can be tested in a dedicated laboratory environment before they are made available to customers.

Paul Denzle, president and managing director of Eltrona said: “We are looking forward to completing our customer offerings with the Ocilion IPTV implementation. For us, this is the ideal service extension for our existing cable TV customers as well as our rapidly growing gigabit Internet customers. With Ocilion we were able to gain a powerful partner for our further corporate development.”

Nico Binsfeld, CTO of Eltrona, said: “We decided in favour of the Ocilion ‘on-premises’ solution because it allows us to simultaneously and only with one partner all the services requested by our customers such as replay, catch-up PVR, EPG, VoD, pay TV, the integration of media libraries and streaming services, mobile apps, IP and hybrid STB to offer. This enables us to optimally meet the new usage requirements of our customers.”

Hans Kühberger, managing director of Ocilion, said: “Eltrona is a prime example of the implementation of our on-premises solution: You have been successfully supplying numerous TV customers for years, want-ed to take the next step and with your TV product do justice to new user habits, such as the desire for time-shifted and mobile playback as well as the need for additional content offers. With our on-premises solution, we can provide all of these functionalities – perfectly integrated and turnkey – and meet the high-quality requirements of Eltrona.”
