Mirada continues increasing its list of major partners with the addition of Spain's Movistar+ at the same time as announcing it will launch a cloud-based solution for smaller customers.

Mirada's Iris user interface has been deployed on Movistar+, Telefónica's leading pay-TV platform in Spain following the commercialisation of the multiscreen product for Cablevisión Monterrey in Mexico, part of the Televisa Group, in February 2015.

Mirada will also be launching an advanced cloud-based proposition for its smaller customers, called 'mirada as a service' (maaS). MaaS aims to address the needs of a wide range of potential customers with a bundle of products and services that the company believes will speed up the deployment and continuous upgrade of these customers' digital TV services.

"The company's primary focus remains to grow its pipeline with the aim of further commercial roll-outs to new customers," said Jose Luis Vazquez, CEO. "We were delighted by the successful adoption by Movistar+ of the Iris inspire user experience, and negotiations are continuing with prospects for a number of potential customers in Latin America and Europe."
