OTT solution from Akuzi, D-Link
May 21, 2012
Video delivery specialist Azuki Systems has formed a go-to-market and technology partnership with networking connectivity firm D-Link with the aim of allowing TV cable operators to offer customers affordable access to over-the-top content in their living rooms via multi-screens and home TV sets.
D-Link’s companion set-top-box (STB) embedded with the Azuki Media Client is designed to help TV cable operators capitalise and monetise multi-screen TV Everywhere opportunities at home, faster, better and much less expensively than traditional infrastructure solutions.
John Clancy, President and CEO of Azuki Systems said the technology partnership came at a time when TV cable operators were faced with increased competition, demand for multi-screens and the prospect of a long and expensive journey to upgrade their systems to support TV Everywhere and IP content.
“Now, TV cable operators don’t have to rely on expensive infrastructure upgrades to become a powerful player in the multi-screen TV Everywhere market,” said Eugene Yen, Vice President of D-Link.
