Amino’s Booxmedia signs multiscreen OTT deal with Dutch digital services company DELTA
Finnish technology company Booxmedia, part of the Amino group, today announced a new contract with Dutch utilities and digital services company DELTA, to provide, install and maintain a new end-to-end multiscreen cloud TV solution, using Booxmedia’s white label platform and products.
Once live later on this year, the new service will allow DELTA customers to enjoy the advanced features of Booxmedia’s Cloud TV-Everywhere Suite that include live stream programs, catch-up libraries, network PVR and Booxmedia’s “start-over-to-live” feature that allows users to watch ongoing live stream broadcasts from the beginning.
The service will extensively use Booxmedia’s end-to-end technology that handles everything from media ingest and back-office applications to secure delivery of the content to all different devices that are suitable for IP-TV consumption and play-back.
“The new deal with DELTA helps consolidate our position in Western Europe,” says Booxmedia CEO Jukka Sintonen. “Our broadcast and telco partners want to be able to offer stable technology and the latest features for their own customers, and with the OTT landscape evolving so rapidly, we’re delighted that DELTA has chosen Booxmedia technology for their latest state-of-the-art IP-TV service” he adds.
“Our customers want to watch their favorite programs on their own schedule and on whichever device,” says DELTA’s Business Unit Manager Retail Harko Buringh. “The Booxmedia technology gives us the tools to take the viewing experience with their upgraded cloud TV platform to the new level and brings exciting new features to our customers in the Netherlands for the first time”.
DELTA expects to make the new suite of cloud TV services available to all its All-in-one Premium and Super users at the end of this year.
