AirTies in Orange Spain win

December 17, 2013 11.14 Europe/London By Julian Clover

AirTies Wireless Networks has deployed its advanced set-top box platform for Orange Spain.

Its OTT technology is being used to run multiscreen and pay-TV services for the telco.

The hybrid deployment combines traditional broadcast technologies with IP/OTT technology using Microsoft Smooth Streaming and PlayReady DRM.

Bulent Celebi, executive chairman and co-Founder of Airties said: “Two years ago, AirTies adopted a futuristic strategy that OTT will have a disruptive impact on the pay TV market, not just with streaming services but also integrating these technologies in traditional pay-TV.”

Yves Bazin, GM product development of Orange Spain, said “We were impressed with the responsiveness and experience of the AirTies team delivering a complex innovative project on time. This has made possible an outstanding successful commercial launch of our Orange TV service.”

The Orange Spain project means AirTies has had to fully integrate with the Orange ecosystem including their UI/resident application, remote device management based on TR-069, Viaccess-Orca Purple DRM and RIGHTv as well as Verivue CDN.
