Turku, Finland – 9 September 2016 – Teleste Corporation, a leading provider of video and broadband technologies and related services, announced today that the company has provided a complete, integrated headend infrastructure for the use of research and development at the Wroclaw University of Science and Technology in Poland. The deployment has taken place in 2016 and the devices were delivered by Satlan Sp. z o.o., Teleste’s subsidiary in Poland.
Including the Luminato headend platform and the Ubique software framework, Teleste’s deployment is an elemental part for the Wroclaw University of Science and Technology’s new Multimedia Laboratory, opened just this year. The Laboratory’s aim is to research versatile phenomena related to advanced streaming services such as OTT and VOD in broadband networks, and the way these services are used by consumers. One of the key focus areas of the laboratory is finding out new approaches on to how to measure quality of service and how to transfer service quality to higher levels of customer satisfaction.
“Today, delivery of video streaming services is strongly driven by the growing consumer demand for high-quality video across multiple devices. To successfully engage and win over customers in the tightening competition, businesses must deliver a consistent, high quality experience on all devices. However, defining and measuring the level of quality is not a straightforward task”, says Julius Tikkanen, Vice President of Video Service Platforms for Teleste. “We are pleased that the Wroclaw University of Science and Technology is putting emphasis on research and development of headend technologies and on how to measure quality of experience. We are looking forward to learn about the findings and innovations of their Multimedia Laboratory in the future.”
Teleste’s video headend portfolio is designed to offer operators and service providers innovative and flexible ways to build their services and deliver interactive content from all types of available sources to all consumer screens. Our solutions include such innovations as the Ubique software framework for building complete, interactive video platforms and an application module to our Luminato headend, enabling operators to invent their own tailored headend applications. For Teleste, the Wroclaw University of Science and Technology project continues our active cooperation in transforming future headend services and technologies with several European research projects and institutes, such as the Virtuose and H2B2VS projects under Celtic-Plus of EUREKA.
We will showcase our portfolio at IBC2016, stand 5.C72, 9 – 13 September at the Amsterdam RAI. Please visit www.teleste.com/ibc2016 for more information about our event offering.
