Elemental Technologies, a specialist in software-defined video solutions, has announced that it will power a unified video headend built by Cable Onda, a Panamanian pay TV leader. Elemental will facilitate a consistent user experience across Cable Onda broadband networks as well as help Cable Onda provide consumers with access to catch-up TV, networked PVR applications and VoD services. Elemental solutions will also prepare the company for future 4K video offerings.
“Our business requirement was to offer innovative services to every device, along with lower cost of operation and simple and secure management tools,” said Michael Maduro, Vice President of Strategic Projects for Cable Onda. “Elemental could demonstrate precisely what we were looking for and worked well with our engineering and integration team, and with other technology partners. The result is the most modern unified headend in the region, achieving our vision of a next-generation subscriber experience that retains and builds on our already loyal audience, engaging them over HFC, OTT and mobile.”
