Paris, Ile-de-France, France, 2007/02/05 - EXPWAY, the world leading provider of Electronic Service Guides, will present at 3GSM FastESG™ V3 - MobileTV Platform dedicated to Mobile Network and Broadcast Operators deploying MobileTV services. Hall3, Hospitality Suite #3.1HS174.
FastESG™ V3 provides Operators with a full platform solution to design, manage and deliver ESG, Interactive and Data Casting services compliant to DVB-IPDC standard.
A simple and intuitive Authoring Tool gives Mobile Network Operators and Broadcasters the ability to edit their ESG, design Interactive services (such as voting, betting, quiz or advertising insertions) and create Data Casting services (non-linear audio-video services, such as podcasts or videocasts) to be broadcasted alongside the live A/V content.
FastESG™ MobileTV Platform then takes care of aggregating and partitioning the services in order to allow multiple operators to broadcast their own ESG over the same broadcast network. It interfaces with CAS & CMS systems to generate service bundles and finally delivers the services over either the Broadcast (DVB-H) or the Cellular network (3G) depending on the Operator’s strategy.
All services are supported by a Usage Monitoring function providing Operators with a precious tool to generate usage reports measuring the services audience and key usage patterns of deployed services.
“FastESG™ V3 helps Operators generating revenue opportunities through SMS traffic or cross selling with cellular network web sites by enabling converged services over DVB-H & 3G networks”, said Antoine Weil, CEO of EXPWAY. M. Weil also commented that “Both RAI and Vodafone Italy are currently using EXPWAY “iKit”, the FastESG™ V3 Lab Kit, for developing and testing their future interactive and data casting services”.
FastESG™ MobileTV Platform was already commercially deployed by 3 Italia, Telecom Italia and Vodafone Italy and is interoperable with DVB-H handsets such as Samsung, LG, Sagem, Nokia and Onda.
