has selected Orca Interactive
to supply their RiGHTv IPTV middleware platform to underpin their new model based IPTV service. The IPTV middleware will be deployed to replace the existing solution that is powering Vestitel’s current IPTV service and will be the basis for their Partnership model – to which multiple Bulgarian operators have signed up - that will go live at the end of April 2009.
Vestitel is a triple-play operator offering Internet, telephony and video services. The operator launched its own IPTV service two years ago and decided to leverage the investment in IPTV by launching a managed service to other Bulgarian service providers. The choice of Orca’s RiGHTv platform was based on offering the best price/performance value, combined with the flexibility to customise it to fit the needs of customers and third party operators. Another key attribute that attracted Vestitel to Orca Interactive was the innovative nature of their solution and products like COMPASS, the Personalized content recommendation platform, which offered the promise of innovative solutions to be implemented in the future.
Ahead of the official launch, Vestitel has already successfully signed up multiple operators with the aim of rolling out the service to a nationwide subscriber base within the next two years.
