Friday, March 11th, 2011

ROTTERDAM — Netherlands-based CYMTV B.V. has signed a memorandum of understanding with Vietnam’s Hanelcom to jointly build a new IP-based television service for Vietnam.

The new service will be called “HanelTV” and will become available for TV (using the new Hanel set-top box), PC, Smartphone and Tablet.

The main technology used will be CYMTV’s private cloud streaming product, which ensures high-quality video content to be securely streamed over the open internet.

HanelTV will offer live channels in SD and HD quality, as well as on-demand video, news and information services, games, karaoke, a community portal and more. The service will even offer 3D content.

In addition, HanelTV will also be available for Vietnamese living outside of Vietnam.

CYMTV and Hanelcom will also co-operate on the future DVB-T2 platform that is set to be launched in 2012.

More information on HanelTV will become available over the next few months preceeding the service’s launch planned later this year.
