Liberty Global, Ericsson expand DVR services in LatAm

September 26, 2016

Ericsson and Liberty Global have confirmed a new two-year deal between VTR in Chile and Liberty Cablevision of Puerto Rico, both part of LiLAC Group (Liberty Latin-America and Caribbean, part of Liberty Global Group).

With Ericsson’s Video Storage and Processing Platform (VSPP), the TV operators will be able to expand the reach of their DVR services across their countries.

Ericsson’s VSPP simplifies the recording capabilities and provides enriched functionalities for LiLAC’s linear TV services. It also offers a unique, proven infrastructure that allows for seamless augmentation and replacement of legacy television services with new cloud-based services. Furthermore, Ericsson’s VSPP provides outstanding performance gains and greatly simplifies Cloud DVR and VoD architectures, allowing operators to avoid many of the complexities and costs associated with these new services.

Adrian Gioia, Head of TV & Media, Ericsson Latin America and Caribbean, says: “We are looking forward to supporting LiLAC Group in delivering ever-improving content, quality and features that delight TV consumers and meet their unique and ever-changing needs. With our solution we are addressing all customer segments with unique configurations, while providing LiLAC Group with the ability to future-proof and grow as they see necessary.”
