ACCESS and Zenterio announced the full integration and deployment of ACCESS’ media sharing and TV-centric browser with Zenterio OS. They will showcase this integration at IBC 2014.
Magyar Telekom and M7 Group, two leading operators in Europe, have already deployed the solution. The integration provides Magyar Telekom customers with a transparent solution to share content stored on the PVR securely, allowing for multiroom recordings, while NetFront Browser NX combined with Zenterio OS enables M7 Group to render its User Interface (UI). M7 TV service live deployment took only three and a half months from decision to launch.
“Our partnership with ACCESS is an ideal solution for two innovative operators looking to provide next generation multiscreen services,” said Robin Rutil, CEO, Zenterio. “This year’s IBC is dedicated to interactive TV solutions across the value chain. The combined ACCESS and Zenterio solution provides operators with a robust solution that ensures secure media sharing on any device, enabling operators to focus on creating new experiences that surpass consumer expectations.”
“Operators are increasingly turning to open, standards-based solutions to deploy seamless multiscreen services on all devices and the integration of our solutions with Zenterio OS provides them with a technologically advanced, complete multiscreen solution,” explained Dr Neale Foster, COO and Global VP Sales TV, ACCESS Europe. “The combination of ACCESS and Zenterio solutions enables operators to meet the fragmentation issues faced when launching multiscreen. The integration of our software platform with Zenterio OS provides operators with a toolkit meeting the A to Z of multiscreen deployment.”
The integration of ACCESS’ key media sharing component NetFrontTM Living Connect completes the cycle that started with the integration of NetFrontTM Browser NX with Zenterio OS which was announced at IBC 2013.
