MediaKind, a media and entertainment technology leader, is launching MediaFirst Client for Mediaroom, a new solution that enables existing Mediaroom operators to upgrade to the MediaFirst TV Platform. Mediaroom is an IPTV platform with more than 40 million STBs deployed worldwide.
The introduction of MediaFirst Client with a cloud-based SaaS platform enables current Mediaroom operators to deliver a converged multiscreen experience and respond to the fast-paced nature of the video delivery market. MediaFirst provides the economics, agility, and innovation at web speed using the latest cloud technologies, Continuous Delivery, and DevOps.
Gowton Achaibar, COO and Head of R&D, MediaKind says: “In this new media age, viewers are constantly seeking more immersive and personalized ways to experience the media content that enriches their lives. For TV providers with legacy STBs, the challenge has always been how to evolve their offering and provide the rich content experiences that consumers expect today, across all their devices. With MediaFirst Client for Mediaroom we have created a simple way for our Mediaroom customers to make this transition and gain the benefits of the MediaFirst TV Platform, with minimal disruption to existing subscriber bases.”
