Dreampark’s Front-End Approach Allows Operators to Deploy a Cutting Edge User Interface Without a Complicated and Costly Change out of Entire TV Infrastructure

NORRKOPING, Sweden — Dreampark, the leading provider of middleware for any platform – cable, terrestrial or IPTV – in the European market, today announced it has provided a front-end middleware solution to Maxisat, Finland. Maxisat is the first operator in Finland offering TV and OTT services using a scalable vector graphics (SVG) client allowing for high-definition user interfaces. The front-end solution delivered by Dreampark is based on the Dreamgallery™ Next Generation TV experience.

Maxisat has been in the IPTV business for several years and has chosen Dreampark’s Next Generation solution based on SVG. The front-end solution includes a TV portal and the Dreamgallery portal generator, a WYSIWYG editor used for administrating the TV portal. The Dreamgallery front-end solution has been integrated with Maxisat’s pre-existing back-end.

“Maxisat will offer TV and OTT services and our partnership with Dreampark has allowed us to quickly move to the market-leading Dreamgallery™ solution based on SVG and still keep our existing back-end. This front-end approach is cost efficient and time saving since all existing integrations done with our back-end system could be kept untouched,” said J-P Hela-Aro, development manager at Maxisat.

“This contract showcases Dreampark’s position as the leading TV middleware provider in Europe. We are proud that Maxisat has chosen Dreampark, proving that the front-end approach is a good way forward for operators already having a TV system in place. This allows operators to deploy a cutting edge user interface while maintaining the existing infrastructure,” said Per Skyttvall, CEO at Dreampark. “We are very pleased to have been awarded this contract and look forward to working closely with Maxisat to ensure its success in the TV space.”
