- Powers the evolution of IPTV into true multi-screen consumer experiences
- Combines broadcast and IP to enable multi-platform service delivery for all operators
- Shows industry’s most complete portfolio for multi-platform, multi-screen TV
At IP&TV World Forum 2012 (Olympia, London, March 20th – 22nd), Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC) will demonstrate how it is driving the future of television with the industry’s broadest portfolio of solutions and services. As the market adapts to meet the challenges of increasing consumer desire for multi-screen television; multi-platform delivery is the essential route to uniting different delivery networks, back-office systems and consumer devices.
“Traditional IPTV has evolved into multi-screen TV, but it’s important to understand that to be successful new multi-screen services will need to go much further than just content on the move or on multiple devices. The whole experience must be one that consumers embrace and integrate into their social and personal lifestyles. Our focus is on helping any operator to combine broadcast networks with the power of IP to provide richer and more convenient ways for viewers to consume, share, and discover content on more devices – driving greater usage and revenue opportunities,” said Staffan Pehrson, VP and Head of TV, Ericsson.
Visitors to Ericsson’s stand (117) will be able to see how the company is enabling all operators and content owners to harness greater efficiencies, launch new differentiating services and grow revenues. Key demonstrations will include:
Staffan Pehrson continues: ”Our TV solutions are based on a foundation of strong consumer insight and deep expertise in video and networks. They have been built to enable operators to respond to the unprecedented challenges that the paradigm shift in consumer expectations of multi-screen TV will bring.”
Ericsson’s record breaking deal with Chunghwa Telecom, Taiwan’s largest telecom operator, is a perfect example of how operators are choosing Ericsson as their partner to integrate and deploy new multi-screen TV services that replace existing IPTV systems. This means that operators can quickly respond to the latest demands of consumers, and overcome the inherent limitations of their previous systems. With the Chunghwa Telecom deal Ericsson will reach 5 million subscribers with its multi-screen TV solutions.
Ericsson has been shortlisted for four IP&TV Industry Awards at IP&TV World Forum, making it the solutions vendor with the most nominations in the whole awards program.
