  • Extended collaboration between Accedo and SoftAtHome to meet operators’requirement for a wide catalogue of apps designed for TV

LONDON, Olympia — TV Connect — Accedo, the global market leader in TV application solutions, and SoftAtHome, a provider of home operating platforms enabling convergent services for the digital home, today announced the extension of their partnership to develop an end-to-end Appstore solution.

Thanks to SoftAtHome’s SOP platform, this new home-store gives access to HTML5-based apps. Operators and their subscribers can easily access a deep catalogue of leading apps from Accedo’s extensive portfolio, including social media, video-on-demand, photo sharing, and casual games, amongst others.

With this home-store, operators will be able to address the wide range of differing subscriber requirements, enabling them to customise their environment and user experience, and eventually monetize home devices through applications.

“We are working closely with SoftAtHome, as a leading digital home software provider, in a global partnership, to deploy integrated end-to-end solutions for operators,” said Elin Askfelt, VP EMEA of Accedo. “This home-store solution will enhance end-user experience and eventually all home devices will become fully customizable with the end-user’s preferred services.”

“The close working relationship with Accedo, to deploy our joint solutions for two major European players, has kept our product portfolio on the leading edge of innovation from the app perspective,” added Arnaud Bensaïd, Vice-President Marketing of SoftAtHome. “By integrating Accedo solutions to our SOP6 operating platform, we are offering our operator customers the ability to monetize new services. Thanks to Html5 open-standards, this home-store will be ready for any future evolutions.”
