Saturday, September 14th, 2019

At IBC2019, WIZTIVI, leading company in design and development of multiscreen UI for broadcast and OTT video services, continues its close partnership with SERAPHIC Information Technology, global leader in empowering family screens, to firstly match a mature Web App development framework on HbbTV OpApps, providing solid support for operators to develop operator applications and get rich access to content delivery.

The cooperation leverage WIZTIVI’s frontier expertise in multiscreen UI design and development as well as SERAPHIC’s market-proven experience in OpApp solution deployment, enhancing chances for operators to better reach and serve end consumers.

WIZTIVI is proud to announce that TimelessUI Origin is now optimized for the HbbTV Operator App standard thanks to the long-standing HbbTV expertise from WIZITIVI and thanks to the valuable support of SERAPHIC. “We are very happy about this joint demonstration which enables an operator to deploy a best-in-class user experience on TV without a set-top-box. TimelessUI is a proven solution, combining all the required features for a Pay-TV service that can be seamlessly integrated into the existing operator ecosystem with a minimal effort.“ declared Laurent Le Bourhis , Director Product and Innovation at WIZTIVI.
