March 3, 2022
Blonder Tongue Laboratories, a designer and manufacturer of video telecommunications, cable, and fibre transmission technologies, and TiVo have unveiled the new Blonder Tongue NXG Cryptolink for TiVo Managed IPTV Service, an OTT Bulk IPTV Video Redistribution Technology for small and medium sized businesses (SMB) and hospitality location deployments of cloud-based IPTV video services.
The new solution is a complement and enhancement to Blonder Tongue’s NXG EDGE Video Delivery Platform. It aims to simplify and streamline OTT to linear broadcast conversion allowing every TiVo Managed IPTV Service customer to support their business and bulk video needs with a single IPTV network making it easy for people to find, watch and enjoy what they love, on their terms.
“The transition to IPTV technologies is in full swing, but for many service providers, duplicating or replacing their video infrastructure to support SMB and hospitality locations is out of the question,” said Ted Grauch, President and CEO of Blonder Tongue Laboratories. “We’ve seen a lot of customer requests recently for a simple OTT to broadcast conversion technology that can be scalable, customisable and cost effective to support the larger system wide conversion to using IPTV as the back-bone for all video delivery to every type of location and device. Working together with the great team at TiVo, we can now provide a complete solution for video deployment at all types of business customer locations while still modernizing and futureproofing the operator’s IPTV video systems.”
“The NXG for TiVo Managed IPTV Service is our new integrated solution for operators servicing business, institutional and hospitality properties,” added Jeff Glahn, Senior Vice President of Global Sales at TiVo, an Xperi company. “The new OTT to broadcast conversion technology provides the flexibility needed for our customers’ deployments by using the power of our managed IPTV service to provide signal formats that might be needed at any property type.”
