WIND Hellas, the Greek telco, will launch a new multiscreen service by the end of the year, delivering a totally new TV experience to its customers. The features include linear and catch-up TV, network recordings and a rich VOD catalogue. Zappware is deploying and managing a turnkey solution to support the service, covering video headend infrastructure, a cloud-based backoffice including personalization capabilities, and the ‘front-end’ client software for Android-TV set-top-boxes, smartphones, tablets and web-browsers.
Patrick Vos, CEO of Zappware, says: “We are proud and excited to deploy our cloud-based TV solution for WIND Hellas. WIND and the majority of telecom operators we talk to tell us that they require a platform to really engage with their customers, create loyalty and trigger users to enjoy all the available content. Now, here is the challenge: there is a lot of very valuable content ready to be consumed, but how can viewers easily find their favourite TV shows, movies and series? The Zappware NeXX 4.0 turnkey video solution is our answer to that challenge.”
Hermann Riedl, Chief Strategy & Digital Transformation Officer at WIND Hellas, adds: “The state-of-the-art, cloud-based video solution we have chosen is simple to use, fun and personalized. It is a high-end technology solution that along with the content that we will secure, will bring a new way of entertainment to our customers no matter where they are, no matter which device they will be using.”
