BeeSmart achieves a 300% customer growth in 12 months

January 24, 2011

BeeSmart, the acknowledged interactive TV solution provider for service operators and Ekioh, a developer of compelling end user interface engines,  are proud to announce a fast growing number of IPTV users on SVG based client technology.

The  companies report that there are already over 130,000 end-users running BeeSmart middleware clients  and the Ekioh SVG UI Engine.

This achievement represents more than 300 per cent growth over last year’s figures, which is a  result of excellent team performance, modern software design and the right mix of partners involved in  IPTV projects.

A significant number of customers select BeeSmart because of its ease of use and compelling visual  experience. BeeSmart client software is driven by Ekioh’s SVG engine, which is rapidly becoming the defacto standard TV UI rendering technology.  BeeSmart was the first middleware company to recognise  the benefits of SVG and particularly Ekioh’s compact and high performance implementation. This  partnership yielded a solution which is delivering huge satisfaction to end customers and TV operators  alike.

“BeeSmart’s early confidence in our SVG UI Engine has been very helpful in driving our technology to  telcos, and has helped us tailor the product for their needs.” said Piers Wombwell, CEO at Ekioh, “We are  delighted that BeeSmart has benefitted from the fast and attractive user interface design they deliver to  their customers.”

“The Ekioh SVG UI engine provides us a very flexible environment in which we are able to design  responsive and visually attractive user interfaces for the end-client.” said Marko Hiti, CTO at BeeSmart,  “Since our solution comes with a complete set of tools for development of custom applications, the same  level of flexibility can be achieved by our partners who use BeeSmart Software Development Kit for  designing their own tailored TV applications.”
