Entone, a provider of Hybrid TV and Connected Home solutions, has announced that Moldtelecom, the primary telecommunications provider in Moldova, is deploying its Kamai 500 Hybrid Media Player to deliver advanced video services.
Moldtelecom provides a full range of next-generation TV, high-speed broadband and telephony services to Moldova, a nation of 3.6 million people. As part of its IPTV service expansion, Moldtelecom now offers advanced TV services such as network digital video recorder (nDVR), pause and restart of live TV programs (PLTV), and Catch-up TV.
“We needed a reliable and flexible solution for delivering high-quality video services while expanding our service offering to include emerging cloud-based services,” stated Constantine Sevciuc, Marketing Director at Moldtelecom. “Because Entone’s Kamai is fully integrated with our existing eco-system, we are able to quickly and cost-effectively roll-out advanced services to our growing subscriber base.”
The Kamai 500 series provides a powerful and flexible platform for decoding popular video formats, including MPEG-4 (AVC/H.264), MPEG-2 and VC-1, as well as advanced audio formats and transcoding capabilities. To further aid service providers, the Kamai 500 series offers enhanced features such as carrier grade 5 GHz Wi-Fi and Adaptive Bit-Rate (ABR) streaming to help reduce installation time, cost and complexity.
“To differentiate and position themselves for growth, operators need a hybrid solution that offers subscribers more programming choices today while also enabling them access to tomorrow’s next-gen services,” said Bart Vanderostyne, Director of EMEA at Entone. “We are proud to play a key role in Moldtelecom’s innovative digital television service and look forward to supporting them as they expand their services.”
Moldtelecom’s deployment further validates Entone’s leading position as the market leader in IPTV and Hybrid TV solutions. Over 100 of the world’s leading service operators are deployed with Entone to support their IP and Hybrid TV video services.
