Zattoo offers NEW Hybrid TV Solution to compete with offers from multinational corporations

LIVE at IBC: From Multiscreen IPTV to OTT & TV Everywhere to latest Hybrid DVB / IP Solutions

Zurich (09/01/2016) Zattoo, the Swiss solutions provider for IPTV Services and White Label TV Solutions is showcasing a new Hybrid TV Solution at IBC from September 9 - 13.

Network operators, media companies, OTT and VoD providers face the growing challenge of competing with multinational corporations: Often, they neither have a comparable budget nor the organization to implement complex TV projects in-house.

This is particularly the case for cable network operators - they feel the heat very directly. Zattoo now provides regional and national operators with a fully fledged Hybrid DVB-C/IP product combining the best of two worlds: The distribution efficiency of DVB-C for live TV and all the IP benefits, from catch-up TV to cloud based recordings, premium EPG and VoD across all screens.

The fully hosted and managed Zattoo service comes with a proven track record and the solution can be implemented with short time to the market. Reference include operators and media companies across Europe that have already been benefitting from the fully hosted and managed TV Services.

Gernot Jaeger, the chief officer of B2B TV Solutions at Zattoo confirms: "This TV Service boosts our customers to the next level. We provide a real turn key solution covering live TV, live pause, catch-up TV, network PVR and Video on Demand in optimal quality on any network - both in all IP and in Hybrid DVB IP setups.”

In this model, Zattoo acts as a technical service provider by offering a complete solution. The services cover ingest and backend (cloud encoding) as well as the middleware and a wide range of White Label applications for all relevant devices: IP and Hybrid set-top boxes, mobile devices (iOS, Android, Windows 10) as well as Smart TVs and streaming devices such as Amazon Fire TV or Apple TV.

With this approach, an operator can launch a full TV product under its own brand without having to invest in expensive software or hardware. With the complete operation of the platform and the TV Service by Zattoo, customers benefit from continuous updates and enhancements.
