Entone will integrate France-based Anevia's ViaMotion over-the-top (OTT) solutions with its hybrid TV devices and media hubs.

The integrated Anevia-Entone solution is meant to enable service providers to accelerate their time to market with next-gen, Web-enabled TV services for multiscreen. Operators can deliver advanced IP and OTT services throughout a subscriber's home without requiring new wiring or a set-top box at each TV set, resulting in a notable cost savings in both capital and operating costs for the operator.

Anevia offers a range of IP video streaming solutions for live and VoD content over managed IP networks as well as the Internet. Entone's Hybrid TV devices and media hubs enable operators to deliver a TV service that blends traditional linear TV programming with cloud-based/multiscreen media and applications - all from a consistent user interface and a unified service offering.

"OTT technology is a major breakthrough in video. It allows early adopters from telco and pay-TV operators not only to reduce churn, but also to monetise content in new ways," said Morsy Cheikhrouhou, vice president of global sales at Anevia. "The integration with Entone enables operators to immediately deploy multiscreen solutions for further lucrative business opportunities."
