Anevia and Viaccess-Orca (VO) have announced the start of a complete OTT TV platform for TV Red Digital in the Colombian capital, Bogota.
TV Red Digital will operate the new platform as the core of a white-label OTT TV resource which will be made available to Colombian internet service providers. Anevia will provide a headend comprising Genova encoders, NEA-Live® origin packagers and NEA-CDN® network management. This consolidated solution will be integrated with Viaccess-Orca’s TV platform, VO DRM and VO Secure player. TV Red Digital is already serving 35 ISPs with a combined potential subscriber base of 50,000 viewers who will gain access to a wide range of new programmes.
“This new investment will allow our ISP customers throughout Colombia to offer next-generation TV services, including a wide choice of content with pre-approved rights distribution, from all the main programmers to all of their subscribers,” comments Days Velazco, Executive Director, TV Red Digital. “Anevia’s software integrated with VO’s solutions was a logical choice as an industry-proven technology which will enhance the quality of our TV content delivery and maximise our own operational efficiency.”
“Anevia’s long experience in the IPTV sector, combined with our own telco knowledge and product base, are together empowering us to create a strong and effective system which will place TV Red Digital in a very strong position to become a key player in the Latin American market,” adds Carlos Ramos, VP Business Development, Americas, Viaccess-Orca.
“The TV Red Digital project extends our reach in southern America,” summarises Grégory Samson, Anevia’s EVP of Worldwide Sales. “With Viaccess-Orca we have created a fully integrated and pre-tested solution which we are confident will meet all the demands placed on it while being fully scalable to allow future service expansion.”
