FINNISH TV OPERATOR ENHANCES SERVICE OFFERING
WITH A MULTI-SCREEN SOLUTION BY TELESTE
Teleste Corporation, a leading technology and engineering service provider of broadband video and service platforms, and Anvia, a national TV operator in Finland, announced the launch of a multi-screen solution for Anvia's digital TV network.
Anvia has a reputation for being an advanced TV service provider with a state-of-the-art service portfolio. As a forerunner in adopting new technologies and services, Anvia has now decided to take another step to further expand its portfolio of TV services. This has created the need for a carrier-class, multi-screen solution enabling multipurpose functionality and high-quality video.
"Our customers expect premium-class services when it comes to the quality of the video content itself and the sophisticated functionality of the video provision infrastructure,"
said Mrs Pirjo Haavisto, content director for Anvia TV. "Our strategy is designed to meet their expectations and we have noticed that our customers appreciate the choices we have made. Teleste's multi-screen solution is the perfect tool for us to execute our strategy as planned and deliver what our customers value most."
Teleste's multi-screen solution is the perfect supplement to the existing and well-received Teleste headend equipment portfolio. The Teleste Luminato is a cutting-edge, full-featured headend solution optimised to provide conventional video services to television sets in the most efficient way possible. The new multi-screen solution complements Teleste's existing offering by adding the possibility to deliver video services to almost any video-enabled consumer device, including game consoles and mobile devices. The solution adheres to Teleste's strict standards for professional quality and exceptional reliability, which makes it a perfect match for tier 1 cable TV operators while also meeting Telcos' requirements.
"We are thrilled to have Anvia as one of the first customers for our multi-screen solution. This represents a great start for us and proves that we can meet the high requirements set by one of the leading cable TV operators in the mature Finnish digital TV market," states Mr Juha Kangas, product manager at Teleste. "We are proud that our headend solution has been well received by the operators, and I'm glad to notice that we are continuing on the successful track with the multi-screen solution."
