Connected TV service platform extends global reach

LONDON and LAS VEGAS (CES) — Miniweb, the leading provider of cloud-based connected TV services, and Digital Telemedia Co., Ltd (DTM) one of the leading Set Top Box suppliers in China, have partnered to offer customers a variety of new connected TV content sources and services.

The offering is based on Miniweb’s woomi Connected TV Services Platform and DTM’s range of HD DiON Set Top Boxes. It will allow DTM customers throughout Europe, Middle-East and South East Asia to choose from adopting either Miniweb’s own branded, connected TV application ‘woomi’, or to create their own branded solution.

“The flexibility of the Miniweb solution, enables operators and other providers of advanced television solutions to either capitalize upon our woomi brand or to extend their own across a new and exciting connected TV experience,” said Jerome de Vitry, CEO, Miniweb. “Either way, the service will enable viewers of connected DiON devices to utilize advanced functionality and features such as global search and content discovery, recommendations, related content, community, micropayments and personalization.”

DTM is one of the top manufacturers and exporters in China with a manufacturing capability of 1,000,000 units monthly. “There is a growing demand for services and solutions that enrich the connected TV experience and allow service providers to customize their product offering by market. Miniweb’s connected TV application enables just that and we are delighted to be working with them,” adds DTM’s spokesman.

It is fully customisable and enables content providers and device manufacturers to benefit from new revenue streams generated by micropayments and advertising. woomi allows device manufacturers to offer a compelling, connected online video experience to their customers and gives content partners a global distribution and monetisation platform for their content across the largest footprint of connected TV devices.
