The future of TV is with Zenterio at IBC 2018

Today’s television viewers want to be engaged with the content they are viewing. They want access to live TV and VOD content, as well as apps and premium movie rentals all in one place.

To succeed, pay-TV operators must provide compelling content as part of a unified service offering in the home. The challenge is to match the content with the subscribers’ ever-evolving tastes to reduce churn and increase ARPU.

At IBC 2018, Zenterio will introduce Zenterio TV, a one-stop-shop TV entertainment experience platform comprised of client software, UI, and cloud components that guarantee viewer satisfaction and vendor flexibility. Offering pre-integrated, premium OTT content and apps, including YouTube, Netflix, and others, combined with full support for DVB and IPTV, Zenterio TV keeps viewers watching longer and operators in control of the television experience.

Zenterio TV includes cloud-based tools that make the client independent from the backend, allowing quick customization and optimization of content layout, UI, and content presentation. Operators can easily create a tailor-made experience for viewers using the platform’s content layout and editorial content tools. As an HTML and native application platform, Zenterio TV ensures seamless integration on high-end 4K and legacy customer premise equipment, allowing operators to deliver a rich television experience to all subscribers.

Zenterio TV is an open alternative to Android TV but is also compatible with Android TV, as it can be delivered as an app.

The French Parliament, Assemblée Nationale, selects DataMiner as their end-to-end monitoring and orchestration platform

Skyline’s award-winning NMS/OSS platform manages the complete media exchange network of the lower house of the French Parliament end to end.

“We’re very pleased the Assemblée Nationale has selected DataMiner to control, monitor and orchestrate the audiovisual workflows of the MediorNet Riedel platform. Those products manage the multiplexing and distribution of signals, whatever the format, be it SD/HD, SDI, DPI, IP, analog, and so on,” commented Alexis Luherne, Regional Account Manager for France and North Africa at Skyline Communications. “Our DataMiner platform gives the Assemblée a global and unified overview of their entire operation, which is not as clear-cut as it may sound, since the ecosystem concerns a complex and variegated multi-vendor product environment. However, being the only NMS/OSS system on the market that provides complete service management regardless of vendor or model, this poses no problem for DataMiner. The system allows an unconditional and unconstrained integration, no matter the interface or protocol.”

DataMiner’s extreme resilience also applies to time; it guarantees to be future-proof, which is an essential feature, as media workflows are constantly evolving. Thanks to the capability to adhere to established as well as new technology and industry standards, the Assemblée can easily extend the DataMiner platform to their future projects. The platform not only smoothly manages legacy equipment, but also UIP and virtualized routers and infrastructures. On top of that, it simplifies and automates the media workflows, with end-to-end monitoring and control, effectively reducing the operational workload while maximizing resource utilization.

“Every single one of our meetings is recorded and stored. With inputs from all the different rooms at the Assemblée coming directly from the camera, the signals are then multiplexed through the MediorNet Micron Riedel products. By deploying DataMiner as our new solution to manage and orchestrate our operation in Paris, our operators can now effectively monitor and control it end to end. And all that with just a single pane of glass,” added Christian Castelli, Audiovisual System Engineer at the Assemblée Nationale. “We are now able to instantly drill down to every single service and parameter with just a few clicks and control any of our products.”

Skyline’s DataMiner genuinely redefines operational environments by changing the way operators manage their ever more complex ecosystems. The number one NMS/OSS solution enables complete end-to-end integration and makes sure media flows are governed thoughtfully to make them available when and where required. Skyline also continues to massively invest in artificial intelligence, making DataMiner an indispensable real-time AI-powered assistance to operators of critical infrastructures. Proactive management is therefore another inherent aspect of the platform; rather than having to resolve issues, DataMiner prevents them, thus denying problems the chance to even occur. These state-of-the-art features will undoubtedly further strengthen Skyline’s position as the global leader of the industry.
