Next generation cable provider Layer3 TV has selected SeaChange International as a key vendor for its in-home platform, which will launch in the US in 2015. Layer3 TV will use SeaChange’s open Nucleus video gateway software to deliver a service that incorporates the best of television, social and digital life – all within the existing distribution paradigm.
Nucleus positions Layer3 TV for rapid innovation of cloud-based services that orchestrate video delivery from a variety of sources together with social media for today’s digital lifestyle.

“Nucleus is helping Layer3 TV hit the ground running with an array of capabilities that can quickly evolve with consumer habits and preferences,” said Layer3 TV CEO Jeff Binder. “Building our in-home strategy with SeaChange’s software and systems integration expertise puts us in control of our gateway hardware options and lets us keep our focus on innovating at the service layer for high-impact subscriber engagement across devices.”
“Layer3 TV is preparing to transform video services and SeaChange is thrilled to be its partner in delivering a breakthrough service-oriented IP gateway,” said SeaChange CEO Jay Samit. “Nucleus puts our customers in the best possible position for capturing the opportunities raised by disruptive technologies. We’re eager to support Layer3 TV as it enhances the programming and distribution ecosystem with vastly differentiated entertainment experiences.”
