Sezmi and YTL deploy wifi hybrid TV

October 11, 2010

Sezmi and YTL Communications, the Internet arm of YTL Corporation, Malaysia’s leading utilities and infrastructure company, have inked a partnership to launch Asia’s first converged intelligent TV and Internet service, which will provide wireless delivery of all consumer entertainment and communications services to homes and mobile devices in Malaysia by the end of 2011.

The companies claim their wireless “quadruple play” service will be the first of its kind in the world, offering voice, data and television services to the home and mobile devices over a hybrid broadcast and 4G wireless network. This hybrid television component of the offering is based on Sezmi’s television solution, which has already been successfully deployed in the US market. The Malaysian system is being developed and deployed by Sezmi in partnership with YTL Communications and will establish Malaysia as a digital broadcasting hub for the Asia Pacific region.
