VOO selects Alticast’s Middleware for Its Next-Generation Set-Top Box

AMSTERDAM — End-to-end system integrator Alticast is pleased to announce that Belgium’s major Pay TV operator, Nethys SA’s VOO, has selected Alticast’s AltiPlatform™ as its next-generation set-top box middleware.

Alticast will act as the “Master System Integrator” and will upgrade the existing évasion boxes with its AltiPlatform middleware while complementing VOO’s existing backend with various components from its modular video service platform, Ambient TV™. Both AltiPlatform and Ambient TV are a part of Alticast’s end-to-end portfolio.

Delivering on requests of VOO for a quick time-to-market and the need for flexibility, Alticast’s solution provides VOO with an advanced, high-quality system that will allow for future enhancements and adaptability to next-generation STBs.

“The cross-platform compatibility of AltiPlatform enables seamless implementation and management of our service applications across multi-devices for our Next-Generation Entertainment Platform. Its capability to address any future system architecture, ensures our software investment for years to come,” said Christian Vyncke, CTO VOO. “We look forward to working with Alticast as a trustworthy partner for our New Entertainment Experience.”

“We are proud to welcome VOO to our customer family,” said Brian Koo, Managing Director of Alticast EMEA. “Aside from the flexibility and proven performance of our solution, AltiPlatform will be able to provide a viewing experience to VOO’s subscriber base that will maximize consumer engagement and ensure operator monetization now, and in the years to come. With the standardized Application Framework, AltiPlatform will maximize the service agility by delivering diverse service offerings with DevOps.”
