Edgeware has been selected by Spain's regional fibre operator Euskaltel to deliver live streaming and video-on-demand services to set-top boxes and connected devices.

Aiming to increase subscriber satisfaction and loyalty, Euskaltel has expanded its video offerings beyond the traditional linear functionalities, which call for a fully integrated delivery system that could deliver the highest quality content and scale as the service grew.

To meet Euskaltel's requirements, the Edgeware VCP was integrated with NAGRA's comprehensive multiscreen system, MediaLive, to provide the full end-to-end solution comprising of the service platform, secure player and white-label applications to deliver live and on-demand features.

Edgeware's VCP is a single, hardware-accelerated, software-defined platform for all IP video services and device types. When integrated with NAGRA's MediaLive solution, the platform enables premium TV content to be seamlessly delivered to both STBs and a broad range of open devices for an intuitive multiscreen video experience.

"Edgeware's VCP allows us to offer our customers live and on-demand content on any device with a high quality of experience, meeting our customers' demands not just now but also for years to come," said Idoia Uriarte, Euskaltel TV director.

"Scalability was a key reason Edgeware's VCP was selected," added Joachim Roos, CEO at Stockholm-based Edgeware."The ability to address immediate demands and easily and cost-effectively scale to enable new services, devices and customers on one platform is something no other company can deliver."
