3 Screen Solutions (3SS), a provider of customised software solutions and services to the multiscreen digital entertainment industry, has been selected by Germany’s largest cable operator, Vodafone Kabel Deutschland, to enhance the attractiveness and functionality of its Select Video VoD service.
Building on system middleware already deployed at Vodafone, 3 Screen Solutions delivered software innovations which successfully enhanced the functionality and usability of the existing Select Video VoD service, comprehensively refurbishing the VoD application.
In the first step of a staged Select Video launch, Vodafone this month enabled the newly enhanced VoD store for the operator’s approximately 1.7 million subscribers with legacy digital STBs. These legacy STBs were manufactured by multiple providers including Technicolor, Sagemcom, Humax and Samsung.
“It’s an honour to have been selected by Vodafone to deliver the new Select Video service,” said Kai-Christian Borchers, 3 Screen Solutions Managing Director. “In our competitive media landscape, we know how important it is to offer subscribers a really attractive VoD service. To keep those viewers happy long term, it’s vital that the user can navigate and transact with the service smoothly, and we are so glad to help make this a reality for the Vodafone Kabel Deutschland audience.”
