Slovenian Telecom Operator Amis Quickly Rolls Out Services Based on eventIS VOD Experience
Eindhoven, the Netherlands – eventIS, a SeaChange International company and market leader in metadata solutions for linear broadcasting and video-on-demand (VoD), today announced the successful completion of an end-to-end VoD solution for Slovenian IPTV operator Amis. Responsible for the overall system integration, eventIS enabled Amis to roll out services extremely rapidly through a combination of technical expertise and deployment of eventIS’ VOD back office. With its open interfaces, the eventIS back office allowed Amis to combine video servers, middleware, conditional access and applications from an ecosystem of trusted suppliers.
“When we were faced with the challenge of introducing advanced content on-demand services to compete in the highly competitive Slovenian IPTV market, eventIS provided outstanding expertise as well as a flexible middleware solution,” said Tomaž Stegel, IPTV project manager, Amis. “The integration – involving many different market-proven IPTV ecosystem component providers – went smoothly and in an impressively short time. This was largely due to all the internal and external interfaces being highly stable and well-documented. Now, in the operational phase, we’re finding the system management intuitive and easy to handle, with very little maintenance involved.”
“eventIS has enormous experience in implementing VoD services and we are committed to providing best-of-breed, open back office solutions. These offer excellent flexibility and scalability for dynamic markets like Eastern Europe. And by also applying our deep expertise in system integration, we can help service providers like Amis seize market opportunities,” said Marcel Simons, vice president of EMEA sales, eventIS.
The initial roll out took just four months and now Amis is offering a complete range of services to viewers in Slovenia and Croatia. These include both on-demand and subscription-based VoD, quota-based nPVR, time-shifting of the 30 most popular TV channels, pause live TV, restart-TV and historic EPG with 48 hours of catch-up TV.
The eventIS back office at the heart of the Amis solution gives broadcasters and service providers comprehensive tools to manage converging TV services and deliver a highly personalized viewing experience.
