Anevia technology selected by telco consortium in southern Spain to power Zapi TV service
Spanish telco consortium Plataforma Multimedia de Operadores (PMO) has chosen a complete video delivery technology from Anevia, a leading provider of OTT and IPTV software solutions, to power its new Zapi TV service. Zapi will give local telecom operators the resources they need to offer a wide range of subscription-based programmes for viewing on Android set-top-boxes, smart TVs, smartphones and tablets. The new resource is a joint venture by PTV Telecom and Opencable, Acutel (Association of Local Operators of Andalusia) and Aotec (National Association of Local Telecommunications Operators).
“Zapi TV is designed to be a nationwide service offering the highest possible quality of experience,” comments PMO CTO José Carrillo. “We selected Anevia as a best-of-breed end-to-end video-delivery partner able to function as a single point of contact, speeding up the entire deployment and integration process. The result allows the consortium’s members to offer their subscribers high quality-of-experience plus a rich set of features including cloud-based content search and personalised digital video recording. We have already announced the service and will be promoting it strongly from Q1 2020 with the aim of attracting up to 600,000 customers. The service will also include a package of sports channels for ultra-low-latency delivery.”
“Choosing Anevia’s end-to-end solution is enabling PMO to achieve a fast deployment, ensuring the solution goes on air quickly and starts generating revenue,” adds Alfredo Navarro, Anevia’s Sales Director Telco Central Latam. “Low latency was a specific demand which this solution delivers, because all the products work together to reduce latency: our NEA-LIVE® packaging software, NEA-DVR® and NEA-CDN® plus the latest version of our Genova encoders.”
Thanks to Anevia’s solutions, Zapi TV features:
- 4K and UHD content capabilities, with the ability to handle high dynamic range (HDR);
- Streaming scalability, so that the service can start small and grow smoothly with the audience;
- A Cloud DVR solution giving subscribers the freedom to schedule their own recordings through an EPG-based or instance-based programme;
- Storage scalability, ensuring that PMO will never be short of Cloud-DVR storage space.
