Anevia ViaMotion chosen by Philippines cable operator
March 5, 2015
Telmarc Cable, a Philippines CATV and Internet service provider, has chosen Anevia’s ViaMotion Streamer as the core of a newly launched wireless multichannel television service being operated from its headquarters in Manila. The service has successfully completed its trial phase and is now being offered on a subscription basis over Wifi.
“The Anevia solution was recommended to us by a partner as the market leader in packaging” says Edgardo Paynor, CEO at Telmarc Cable. “Combining ViaMotion Streamer with existing encoders creates a very resource-efficient system. We are currently sourcing about 30 programme channels from satellite. Running on a server in our main apparatus room, ViaMotion Streamer then multiplexes these into a single system for live viewing on mobile phones, tablet computers, laptops or internet-connected television receivers. The total system was very easy to integrate with our existing infrastructure and can be upscaled at any time to accommodate additional channels or an expanding subscriber base. ViaMotion Streamer is easy to operate and practically runs itself. Our trials with live content have worked so well that we are now planning to add a video-on-demand service.”
“We are very pleased to be partnering with Telmarc Cable is this innovative project,” comments Anevia CEO Laurent Lafarge. “One of the great features of ViaMotion is that it can be deployed quickly without requiring additional hardware. This contract also demonstrates the widening worldwide adoption of ViaMotion as an enabling technology.”
