has announced a new initiative for the IPTV market sector. Breeze Technologies
, the MPEG and IPTV solutions developer, represented exclusively by Imago in Europe, has formed a new partnership with French IPTV middleware provider, Vianeos
, which will allow the two companies to deliver an ‘IPTV in a box' solution.
The agreement was finalised at last month's IPTV World Forum in London and brings together Breeze Technologies' TVIUM DVB-T set-top box, which captures and distributes digital TV and radio across the IP network, with Vianeos's Octopus middleware solution that allows customers to manage all the multimedia content distributed across their IPTV network.
Imago has been working with Breeze Technologies for the last seven years distributing the TVium solution and will now broaden its relationship to help both Breeze and Vianeos bring the new package of products to market. Imago's breadth of product offering complements the new ‘IPTV in a box' solution, as it not only brings together content management middleware along with television channels via the TVium gateway, but in addition provides the ability to play out all of the multimedia created by utilising its Amino family of set top boxes.
The key benefit to customers will be ease of use, combined with the functionality afforded by two of the leading IPTV solutions on the market. Imago Group will introduce the ‘IPTV in a box' offer to its specialist channel of resellers and systems integrators.
For Imago the ‘IPTV in a box' solution provides customers with a one-stop-shop for an economical but powerful application suite.
