SEONGNAM, Korea — KAONMEDIA (KOSDAQ:KAON MEDIA) is very proud to announce that Telefónica has selected KAON as official partner for its TV business. Since July 2014, KAON has started to supply new DTH Set-Top Boxes to Telefónica Chile after the company had successfully passed the Global Homologation process with HD DTH STB, going to expand its supply to other LATAM countries.

“With Telefónica reinforcing its commitment to LATAM Markets for our TV strategy, we are glad to partner with such STB technology leader. Partnering with KAON, we are successfully able to provide our customers with our ultimate TV experience within a short time to market” confirmed Javier Lucendo, head of video services development of Telefonica S.A. “We are looking forward to expanding our relation to KAON on the basis of excellence in achievement in Chile.”

As Telefónica plans to launch the next generation DTH hybrid model in Brazil in 2015, KAON will also be supplying new Hybrid Set-Top Boxes in NAGRA Security environment. Running on OpenTV5 middleware, the Hybrid Set Top boxes will ensure Telefonica to expand its services and presence to the rest of LATAM Regions. Meanwhile, KAON demonstrates the new DTH Set-Top Box at the upcoming IBC to be held from September 12 to 16 at its stand located at Hall1.B16, RAI Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
