Oregan Networks, the British IPTV software and systems specialist, and CAT Telecom Public Company Limited (CAT) have announced a successful launch of an Over the Top entertainment service to broadband subscribers on CAT’s 3G and fixed line networks.
Following the unveiling of the service in Jangwattana Road, Bangkok, in December 2012, Ms Anothai Klampaiboon – Exclusive VP at CAT e-Business commented, ‘The PayTV market in Thailand and APAC is growing at an incredible pace. CAT plans to deliver over 100 channels of paid and free to view television within Thailand’s domestic market, as well as internationally within APAC.’
She added, ‘CAT chose the IPTV client platform from Oregan for a simple reason: CAT could hit its timing targets without compromising on features or quality of service. Importantly, the remote upgrade feature of Oregan Media Browser will allow CAT to stay in tune with its users’ evolving tastes and new requirements.’
The internet streaming Set Top Box powered by Oregan’s middleware delivers information widgets, user generated content and PayTV channels via multicast and unicast modes, as well as enabling users to stream personal content from home network devices.
British company Packetship was chosen to provide HLS adaptive bitrate video and AES content encryption servers, integrated by Oregan’s Thailand based representative company Digital Media Interface.
Oregan’s hybrid middleware for cloud-based and broadcast media delivery, as well as multi-screen applications, will be showcased at the TV Connect Exhibition, held in London on 19 – 21 March 2013.
