January 31, 2011
In a development that will revolutionise the region’s connected home entertainment industry, Techstorm, a UAE-based new media technology company, has partnered with Silicon Valley-based Verismo Networks and their Internet TV Platform to launch the VuMax service and bring HD quality entertainment directly to TV sets through broadband Internet.
This will be an operator-independent OTT platform service to be introduced in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region and targets a huge market of Internet users who seek entertainment through their broadband connection. The Verismo Platform allows Techstorm to deliver OTT videos, including live TV channels, linear channels and value-added Internet applications. Additionally, the new platform brings social networking applications such as Twitter, Facebook and MySpace directly to the TV.
