Airlink pick Nordija and Hybroad tech for new Caribbean TV offering
Aug. 23, 2017
Hybroad and Nordija has successfully delivered an integrated IPTV & OTT set-top-box solution for the telecommunications company Air Link Communications Ltd. in the United States, who will launch their upgraded TV offering for viewers in the Caribbean Region in the beginning of 2018.
“We chose Nordija because of their ability to support our existing legacy HFC (Hybrid Fiber Coax) Network along with our New GPON IP based network. Also, our decision was based on Nordija being built on HTML 5 which we see as future proof, as most devices can run web based applications, making integration to new platforms easier”, says Keenan Singh, CEO at Airlink.
The solution is a result of a newly initiated collaboration between the Danish middleware company Nordija and IPTV/OTT Set-Top-Box company Hybroad, which integrates the Nordija middleware platform fokusOn on the new Hybroad box 4K HEVC with new features.
“We’re happy to see the joint solution of Nordija middleware on Hybroad STB, providing the operator market a cost-effective and ready-to-go IPTV/OTT STB solution with functions like EPG, linear TV, VOD, catch-up, nPVR and much more, both available on Linux and Android platform”, says Kevin Xia, VP at Hybroad.
“It has been a great collaboration and we are excited about the possibilities for the future. Airlink has great potential and Hybroad fits excellent in their future plans”, says Jeroen van Vliet, CCO at Nordija.
“We see this partnership with Nordija as playing a critical role in achieving our goal of always evolving to meet the ever-changing demands of the Pay TV Market”, Keenan Singh, Airlink.
