A new platform could soon be transmitting more than 100 HDTV and SD channels into the Middle East, using IPTV protocols.
The idea is to serve Middle East ex-pats. Talia IPTV, hosted via their Talia teleport in Germany, and in an agreement signed at IBC, will see Talia provide a complete end-to-end solution for a 100+ channel IPTV OTT network targeting the worldwide Middle Eastern ex-pat community.
Talia IPTV says it already offers providers of ethnic, specialty, and regional content the ability to extend their reach to audiences spread throughout the world. From Arabic channels in America, to Nigerian Church broadcasts in Australia, Talia IPTV connects broadcasters with customers anywhere, live, with video on demand, and employing the newest technologies and apps to deliver interactive content.
“The Talia Teleport opened in September 2009, with the goal of combining enterprise-class technical services with the customer service Talia is already known for,” said Alan Afrasiab, President and CEO of Talia. “We have accomplished a lot in a short time, and we are proud that industry-leading companies choose to host their services with us.’
