Company reaffirms OTT opportunities for operators

NEUILLY-SUR-SEINE — Netgem (Paris: NTG FP 7537; ETGM), a leading provider of connected entertainment, today announced that its Chief Marketing Officer, Yann Courqueux, will present on OTT opportunities for operators during the TelcoTV 2010 Conference from 9 to 11th of November in Las Vegas.

Joining other industry experts from Verizon Communications, DISH Network and Dailymotion, Yann will discuss “Capitalizing on the OTT Opportunity” on November 9th from 4:15 – 5:30 pm.

Throughout the event and in partnership with Harmonic Inc. (NASDAQ: HLIT) (stand #543), Netgem will be demonstrating its Hybrid IPTV Media Centre and Internet Adaptor that are already installed by SFR in France, Telstra Corp. Ltd. (ASX: TLS; NZK: TLS) in Australia, Monaco Telecom, Algeria Telecom, and Melita Telecom in Malta. Netgem is also powering the Toshiba Places TV service in France providing a stand-alone over-the-top (OTT) streaming service and Set Top Box.

“As US Telcos grow increasingly concerned about the impact of over-the-top video, hybrid-IP delivery allows them to embrace it, rather than viewing it primarily as a threat.” said Steven Hawley, Principal Analyst and Consultant for tvstrategies, who is moderating the OTT discussion that involves Netgem and others.

“Netgem offers a blended experience of premium paid TV and OTT Internet content. Our Hybrid TV solutions goes beyond traditional IPTV and offer a more integrated experience than current pure OTT offers in market today,” added Courqueux.
