Optibase IPTV Solutions Gaining Momentum In Asia
HERZLIYA, Israel — Optibase Ltd. (NASDAQ: OBAS), a leading provider of advanced digital video solutions and Leadcom Integrated Solutions Ltd. (AIM: LEAD), a leading international provider of innovative telecommunication solutions, announced today a strategic alliance to roll out integrated TV over IP services. The first project will be delivered to a leading Telco operator in the Republic of Kazakhstan.
Leadcom selected Optibase’s pre-integrated, advanced IPTV platform in order to enhance its offering by adding high quality, broadcast TV and interactive IPTV services. The joint deployment in Kazakhstan includes Optibase’s end-to-end IPTV solution consisting of Video on Demand (VOD), personal video recorder (PVR) services, middleware, set-top-boxes (STB) and the Optibase Media Gateway (MGW) carrier-grade H.264 encoding platform.
Countries such as Kazakhstan are experiencing strong growth due to new legislation and liberalization of the telecom sector. The IPTV solution provided by Optibase and Leadcom is ideally suited for this fast growing market, offering a state-of-the art system, which can be deployed both quickly and effectively.
Yoel Bar-Gil, Chief Technology Officer at Leadcom, said: “In this project, Leadcom is delivering a Triple-Play solution (IPTV, IP-phone & broad-band Internet access) to selected subscribers of the Telco operator. Optibase’s IPTV solution allows Leadcom to provide its customers with a video over IP system that is efficient and easy to deploy. Furthermore, the Optibase solution provides Leadcom with an extensive offering of interactive and personalized features coupled with top video quality and low bit-rates. This creates a winning combination for our customers.”
