Kralendijk, Bonaire - Netherlands Antilles, Netherlands, 2010/02/19 - Manycast Consultancy, Inc. and Telefonia Bonairiano N.V. partner for Digital TV projects in the Caribbean and South- & Central America by establishing an International Content Distribution Platform.
The Caribbean based content strategy and content acquisition specialists Manycast Consultancy Inc. and the 1st IPTV deployment in the Caribbean and South/Central America operated by Telefonia Bonairiano, aka TELBO N.V., form a strategic partnership. The International Content Distribution Platform that has been build will deliver Digital TV content such as Linear Digital TV Channels, VOD and PPV services to Telecom, Media and Hospitality companies in the Caribbean and South- & Central America.
‘Many operators in the region are thinking of deploying Digital TV (IPTV, DTV, DVB-T etc.) but costs of building head ends and dish farms is a large investment and is very time consuming to build and to maintain. It is a lot easier and more cost efficient for operators to abstract content from our International Content Distribution Platform at a fixed price per service per month. The partnership will be able to react to the current and future demand to deliver content anywhere in the region from the established platform we created and is currently fully operational on Bonaire. This partnership will further strengthen and extend the turnkey offering to current and potential clients in what is a rapidly evolving marketplace. This partnership has already successfully marketed Eurosport channels and various high quality Dutch channels to clients in the Dutch Antilles.’ commented Jorris Uding, MD of Manycast Consultancy Inc.
‘By using our full service digital headend, our expertise and our investments in optical submarine cables and our other international transport partners, we will be able to deliver content almost anywhere in the region. This will most certainly help others to rollout Triple play services in a time span even shorter than ours’, said Gilbert de Bree, General Manager of Telefonia Bonairiano N.V.
