Comigo, a multiscreen TV platforms, and Broadpeak, a CDN technology provider, have unveiled an integrated solution that allows IPTV operators to deliver live TV services to TV screens, mobile devices, smartphones, and tablets, in addition to personalised content, advanced social capabilities, and content-related interactive apps.

Using the integrated solution that combines Comigo’s Android-based STB solution and Broadpeak’s nanoCDN technology, the companies state that operators can provide an engaging viewing experience to their customers at a cost-effective price, unlocking new revenue opportunities.

Comigo’s TV platform is powered by a flexible, cloud-based solution that enables operators to fully manage and control the TV experience on any screen. This allows operators to provide personalised content recommendations, content-related applications including social apps like Facebook and Twitter, and other features and capabilities, increasing interactivity and engagement.

Broadpeak’s nanoCDN technology relies on the usage of home networks devices such as set-top boxes to make them an extension of the CDN. Leveraging the multicast capability of the networks, nanoCDN enables operators to provide subscribers with an improved quality of experience for live video services, while drastically reducing costs.

“We are proud to partner with Comigo,” said Jacques Le Mancq, CEO of Broadpeak. “The integration of Broadpeak’s nanoCDN in Comigo’s Android-based STB brings IPTV operators a truly scalable solution to cost-effectively deploy live multiscreen services.”

“This collaboration with Broadpeak transforms the way that IPTV operators deliver live content while providing them with an effective monetisation strategy for multiscreen,” said Motty Lentzitzky, CEO of Comigo. “By partnering with technology providers like Broadpeak, which offer advanced and competitive video delivery solutions, Comigo continues to be the leader in providing an exciting television experience on any device.”
