Falcon Media House, the digital technology and media group, has agreed to provide live and on demand digital streaming technology to JPR Network, the Mumbai-based cable network provider.
The deal extends Falcon’s global footprint to India, following agreements in Nigeria, South Africa, Canada and Mongolia. JPR Network benefits from a partnership in which Falcon provides subsidiary Quiptel’s patented Q-Flow open Internet streaming technology, also known as OTT, and Mumbai-based Media Nucleus provides systems integration.
“We’re looking forward to delivering the first of many such systems as OTT platforms represent the future of broadcasting,” comments Falcon Media House Executive Chairman, Gert Rieder. “Local networks and mobile services in India, Africa and Southeast Asia are not always reliable enough to provide high quality streaming experiences – which is where the Quiptel technology makes a big difference.”
