The Region’s Dominant Middleware Supplier Offers Flexibility and Attractive End User Features for the TV Industry
NORRKOPING, SWEDEN — Dreampark, one of the leading providers of middleware for cable, terrestrial and IPTV services in the European market, today announced that it has delivered its Dreamgallery™ TV middleware to Norwegian ISP RingNett AS. This new deal marks Dreampark’s seventh client in Scandinavia, further strengthening the company’s position as the dominant middleware supplier in the region.
Dreampark also counts operators Canal Digital, Dansk Bredbånd, FastTV, iVisjon, Smile Content and Viasat among its Scandinavian client base.
RingNett is one of Dreampark’s first customers to deploy many of the new features of Dreamgallery 3.4. The next-generation middleware incorporates interactive services such as live MMS to the TV, scheduling of PVR recordings via mobile phones or a Web user interface, pre-paid VOD, Dreamlets and RSS feeds support. Enhanced network PVR end-user features include Start Over, Historic EPG, Scheduled Recordings, Record Current Event and Time Shifted TV.
“Helping RingNett to deliver an attractive IPTV service to their customers gives them a competitive offer for the Norwegian market,” said Per Skyttvall, CEO, Dreampark. “The Dreamgallery TV middleware also facilitates a white label approach where RingNett can sell its service to partners looking to deliver IPTV services within their networks. The possibility to customize and brand the solution for different operators is also a great advantage with the Dreamgallery system.”
“Based on our Scandinavian presence, Dreampark is a natural choice for RingNett,” said Sondre B. Rabbe, project manager, RingNett. “Their middleware solution provides great flexibility and offers continuously evolving excellent and competitive interactive features to meet the also constantly growing customer demands.”
“It’s great for us also as a ‘white label’/no brand provider to have the ability to easily customize the middleware for our partner companies and for this Dreampark are up to the task,” Rabbe continues.
