Croatia’s Optima Telecom has upgraded its OptiTV service and deployed a next generation end-to-end solution in partnership with SmartLabs.

SmartLabs won a tender in which over 20 companies took part and its solution includes a service delivery platform (SmartTUBE SDP), video infrastructure (SmartMEDIA), an advanced user interface (SmartTUBE UI) and the SML-482 STBs.

The solution gives Optima Telecom customers access to linear TV channels, VOD, pay-per-view services, radio stations, YouTube and Facebook. They can also play user generated content from external devices.

Mikhail Grachev, SmartLabs CEO, stated, ” We are delighted to collaborate with Optima Telecom to work with them to deliver their far reaching and fascinating plans for the OptiTV service. We believe that this ambitious project will bring out the full potential of our products and allow SmartLabs to demonstrate our capability to implement and support state-of-the-art national interactive TV services.”
