Mware Solutions offers a true turnkey end-to-end IPTV Middleware solution based on a modular design. The solution is based on the so-called building blocks Encoding/Transcoding, Content Distribution Network and Streaming Solutions, Middleware and Apps for several devices like Set-top Boxes, Tablets, Smartphones, SmartTV’s, PC’s and Mac’s. An operator can choose the building blocks to create and/or complement its IPTV solution.

With IMS (IPTV Middleware System), the operator gets one of the most comprehensive IPTV management and publishing solutions on the market today. Its modular architecture makes it possible to adapt to any of your business requirements. With IMS, you take full control over your multi device IPTV service(s) without the need of trained IT staff and/or network/server experts. IMS enables you to set up and manage multiple IPTV services from one central web-based management console. Due to its open structure, IMS can connect to any 3rd party solution or service.

By this integrated approach, Mware offers a guaranteed working solution that allows operators to focus on the content and marketing and sales of their services.

Mware’s solution is completely integrated with Linux based set-top boxes based on the ALi chipset M3912 offered by TelergyHD. TelergyHD is a Dutch company that produces top quality OTT/IPTV Android and Linux based set-top boxes. TelergyHD combines the best of what Asia can manufacture with Dutch entrepreneurship and technical know-how.
