Zurich (29/05/2017) Zattoo has launched the next generation of its White Label IPTV service and NetCologne is the first German network operator to go live with it today. The service was successfully rolled out for Swiss network operators last month.
With a completely reworked user interface and using one of the most cutting-edge programming languages, the course is set for the White Label IPTV service’s next upgrade phases. Zattoo’s IPTV solution has become even more powerful with the new release, and more companies will be using it as a state-of-the-art upgrade in the future.
The new Zattoo user interface for the First Screen is supported by the ABOX42 M20 and M30 set-top box platforms.
Zattoo will be presenting the new release live at the ANGA COM with NetTV, NetCologne’s Multiscreen IPTV solution as an example. The new and very modern user interface will be on show, and there are plans to integrate additional features into this.
As an important regional network operator, NetCologne provides the metropolitan area of Cologne/Bonn/Aachen with future-proof communication technology. The Cologne-based company has been established as a cable TV provider for the housing industry for many years. For its new IPTV service NetTV, which was launched one year ago, NetCologne uses Zattoo’s IPTV Multiscreen solution – a TV solution that is completely hosted and managed by Zattoo.
“The cutting-edge user interface lays the foundations for NetTV’s next expansion phases. We are seeing increasing demand for innovative TV functions”, Daniel Rehkaemper, Product Marketing Team Leader at NetCologne is pleased to explain.
Gernot Jaeger, the Chief Officer of B2B TV Solutions at Zattoo adds: “We are pleased that NetCologne is the first German network operator to launch the new release of generation 3.0. The implementation in Switzerland has been very promising so far. This upgrade will be rolled out to more customers soon.”
“With the joint First Screen product from Zattoo & ABOX42, our customers have not just chosen one of the most cutting-edge TV solutions with all the relevant functions for the local market, but also to continually receive new product functions and service upgrades so that they can market a great product both today and tomorrow” explains Oliver Soellner, Member of the Executive Boad at ABOX42.
The White Label IPTV solution allows network operators to roll out a complete TV product under their own brand and with their own project profile – without having to invest in expensive software or hardware components. With the complete operation of the platform and the TV service by Zattoo, network operators benefit from continual updates and developments and are able to become and remain as competitive as the big established TV operators.
