SeaChange International has given some of the technical details of the back office system it is providing to Kabel Baden-Württemberg for its recently launched VOD platform.

Videothek went live in December to 2.3 million subscribers in south-west Germany. SeaChange and subsidiary eventIS has been acting as the systems integrator on the project and were responsible for system testing, launch support and integration with set-tops, applications, middleware and network components from third-party suppliers.

“The launch of our ‘Kabel BW Videothek’ demonstrates the innovational power of the established cable network standards and the top performance of our interactive platform,” said Stefan Beberweil, head of product management of Kabel BW . “Our customers can simply enjoy through easy-to-use software and not have to worry about complicated technology.”

Videothek is also supplied with Hollywood blockbusters and local independent content from On Demand Deutschland, the joint venture between SeaChange International’s On Demand Group and Tele München Gruppe, which delivers top titles from Dreamworks, FOX, MGM, Paramount, Universal, Warner Bros. and other major film studios, as well as independents including Constantin and Tele München Gruppe.
