Dalton brings next generation video technology to northwest Georgia community

Dalton Utilities/OptiLink™ has announced the launch of VidLink®, an innovative next-generation video platform, the company said.

Dalton Utilities is one of the first public utilities in the nation to offer the breakthrough cloud-based technology, by MOBITV, the app-based Pay TV platform.

The VidLink announcement builds on the company´s history of innovation. Dalton Utilities was one of the first municipal utilities in the nation to build a Fiber-to-the-Home network in 2003, bringing ultra-high-speed broadband to an underserved market.

VidLink delivers the freedom to watch content in a convenient and simple app that resides next to other popular streaming services. The platform is designed to run on multiple devices, including Amazon Fire TV®, Android TV® and Apple TV®, while reducing installation time and the need for costly, cumbersome and outdated set-top boxes.

VidLink is the next of several innovative products to be launched by Dalton Utilities and OptiLink over the next year.

Dalton Utilities, in operation as a public utility since 1889, provides potable water, electrical, natural gas and wastewater treatment services to the City of Dalton and portions of Whitfield, Murray, Gordon, Catoosa, and Floyd counties. Beginning in 1999, Dalton Utilities branched into telecommunications with broadband services to large industrial/commercial customers. With the 2003 launch of its OptiLink family of services, the company now provides broadband, cable TV, telephone, and Internet services to area residents and businesses. Dalton Utilities serves approximately 78,000 customers and employs over 300 area residents.

MOBITV is the white-label, end-to-end streaming video solution in the market, which enables Pay TV operators to rapidly launch a branded, thoroughly compliant, fully featured app-based Pay TV service. For more information, visit www.mobitv.com.
