Netgem rocks down Music Avenue

September 6, 2016

End-to-end video entertainment provider and #TelcoTV solution specialist Netgem has launched the Music Avenue, a multi-room music aggregation and playout service for music lovers.

Forming part of Netgem’s strategy to move from connected TV services into connected entertainment, the Music Avenue is an integral component of Netgem’s range of content services, representing the first step towards Netgem’s Connected Home ambition. In addition to new content-centric UI developments across the platform, the cloud-based service incorporates multi-source discovery and personalisation capabilities to seamlessly deliver audio content around the home and on-the-go.

Music Avenue enables users to aggregate and access content from their complete and unified music library on a range of audio services, including radios, playlists, music files and CD collections, which can be played out through wirelessly connected speakers using the TV remote control or the smartphone / tablet app.

Netgem has partnered with Voxtok Music for the Music Avenue, the audio entertainment suite recently joined by several brands and music experts such as French audio company Elipson, Tangent, a Danish Hi-Fi designer, DiDit High-End (a premium audio device designer), and InProdicon, a leading provider of WW Digital Content.

The Music Avenue will be launched as a white label proposition, available for telecoms operators to enable a consumer offer that includes a full suite of entertainment services, through one central curated source, presenting relevant content and audio services to each user.

The new solution, which will be offered to all existing Netgem #TelcoTV clients, will enable telecoms operators to offer quick to market bundling proposition that incorporates TV and audio entertainment alongside existing Internet and mobile packages.

Sylvain Thevenot, managing director of Netgem Europe said: “Consumers are increasingly demanding simpler access to all of their digital content within the home to enhance the compelling entertainment opportunities provided by connected TV devices. With the launch of the Music Avenue, Netgem’s #TelcoTV operator clients can offer a richer set of bundled connected entertainment services through one simple and unified interface.”
