TVCABO worked with PerceptionTV Limited to roll out the integrated TV service. The Perception platform delivers live TV with instant rewind, Catchup TV, nPVR, VoD, all pre-integrated into a single end user application available across multiple screens. It is completely scalable enabling TVCABO to manage and control cost, ensuring the company only invests more when there is demand from subscribers.
Perception was developed from the ground up to provide operators with a commercially sound, feature rich platform for the secure delivery of IPTV/OTT multiscreen video entertainment. It provided TVCABO with a complete end-to-end solution to the service provider. Many TV platforms only include multiscreen middleware. Perception also includes all video server software and front end applications which can be easily branded for clients.
The specialist skills required to make online TV a success are formidable and the availability of end-to-end TV platforms that can be rolled out quickly and cost effectively are still not easy to find. Taking advantage of technology to create and deliver an engaging service across all manner of devices can transform the opportunities open to service providers. Television need no longer be a complex and expensive service but a scalable platform for customer engagement and revenue opportunities. As TVCABO has demonstrated across Central Africa, forward thinking service providers can use television to generate revenues, reduce churn and engage customers more effectively.
