Hutchison Drei Deploys Thomson Video Networks’ Multiscreen Solution for Video Distribution
Advanced Multiscreen Video System Enables Streamlined OTT Video Services to Diverse Array of Mobile Platforms as Well as Highest-Quality Big Screen Delivery to Home Viewers.
Based on Thomson Video Networks’ MediaFlexOS video operating system, the ViBE VS7000 is designed to offer a streamlined and unified video platform that removes much of the complexity from content distribution to multiple mobile device formats. At the same time, the ViBE VS7000 is able to deliver the superior video quality required to secure new audiences and satisfy demanding home viewers accessing content on high-resolution, large-screen displays.
By migrating from legacy video distribution equipment to the ViBE VS7000 and MediaFlexOS, Drei has not only consolidated its operations, but has significantly improved the user experience on every device. The new platform is a central component in Drei’s ongoing strategy to increase video usage and average revenues per user, as well as expand market share among young urban users through new rich media services.
“As one of the fastest growing providers of mobile broadband services and one of the most respected innovators in the Austrian mobile telecommunications market, Drei is committed to offering its customers the highest-quality video experience for live TV and video-on-demand. Adopting our ViBE VS7000 as the basis for its entire video distribution platform is only the latest example,” said Eric Louvet, vice president of sales and services, Thomson Video Networks. “Drei had very challenging requirements for video delivery to a diverse array of platforms, but we were able to meet these needs through an iterative process of OTT platform optimization. As one of our first mobile use cases in the DACH territory, Drei is a textbook example of how to leverage the ViBE VS7000 to retain existing customers and also grow the video client base and video-based revenues.”
