UTStarcom Inc. has launched its end-to-end Internet TV solution, and also won its first commercial contract to build up an Internet TV platform for a local cable operator in Northern China.
The new end-to-end Internet TV solution is derived from UTStarcom's core RollingStream technology system, which is based on cloud computing technology, has an open system structure and can expand for large scale deployments in the future.
The idea is to enable the customer to easily operate, manage and control the system and subscriber information. "We believe this is the best time for us to launch our Internet TV solution which will hopefully help us capture the great growth opportunity of the Internet TV market," said Jack Lu, president and CEO of UTStarcom, in a statement.
Meanwhile, UTStarcom will help to build a comprehensive Internet TV operational system which includes a broadcasting control platform, content distribution network and terminal, for the cable operator, who was not named. The platform will provide a service where subscribers can access Internet, multimedia and telecommunications, as well as interactive digital TV, video-on-demand, and many other services under one subscription. This platform will help UTStarcom's cable operator clients to further increase their revenue opportunities through an enhanced subscriber experience.
