Turku, Finland – 29 August 2016 – Teleste Corporation, a leading provider of video and broadband technologies and related services, highlights its software framework for video content management for operators. The framework, called Ubique, can be used to build tailored and comprehensive content management systems in a multivendor, multiscreen environment. It allows operators to create an access point to all interactive video services for their customers, thereby providing consumers with an easy way to enjoy OTT services on various consumer devices.
“As the availability of interactive video services is driving a change in how TV and video are being consumed, the provision for OTT content has become of great value for consumers and businesses. Although new OTT players are challenging operators and their offerings in the market, operators are still in the pole position when it comes to offering a superior user experience for consumers ”, stated Hanno Narjus, Senior Vice President of Network Products for Teleste. ”Teleste’s Ubique has been designed for operators who wish to offer their customers an attractive navigation point to all available interactive services, combined with carrier-class linear television broadcasts.”
Taking interactive services to consumers requires a huge amount of content that must be managed and served. The Ubique framework allows operators to build comprehensive interactive video platforms by the means of integrating together their existing servers, billing, CAS, middleware and transcoders as well as managing EPG and PSI/SI information. It also makes it possible for operators to control set-top boxes and decide what their customer EPG should look like.
What makes Ubique unique is the fact that it is a video content management system, whereas many other available content management systems do not have such a sharp focus on video. Ubique supports video files in various formats and makes it possible to stream them to one, several or all customers. It also allows operators to control set-top boxes and offers such functions as video capture, easy upload and flexible searches based on metadata.
Support for several video formats and the user-friendly access control make Ubique a perfect tool for operators who wish to win over customers and maintain a competitive edge in the rapidly changing OTT and broadcast industries. A prominent reference for the framework is Multimedia Polska, a significant European cable operator utilizing Ubique to control streaming video delivery to various consumer devices and support delivery of innovative new TV services to the subscribers of the company.
