IENTC Telecomunicaciones, an Internet and television service provider operating in the Mexican market, has announced it is launching VectorMax´s turn-key IPTV Platform as the software to support its new television product, the company said.
Serving the market for more than 10 years, IENTC Telecomunicaciones´ new service augmenting its consumer offering reflects the growing shift from broadcast television to IP delivery of live linear TV.
This marks the first commercial deployment of an all software solution enabling operators to transition from broadcast to online delivery of live linear television without having to upgrade their network architecture. The software leverages USD 73M of R&D from teams out of MIT, IBM Labs, Bell Labs, DARPA and MPEG related projects to deliver multicast live linear as a turn-key, fully integrated, multicast software platform for cable operators, telcos, and high-speed access providers.
IENTC´s new +TV service is bolstered by a recent study from Hub Entertainment Research. The study found that the average number of television services accessed online per viewer in the US in the past 24 months reflected a rise of over 50%. That number is expected to trend globally. IENTC is also tracking the Hub findings reflecting pay-TV subscribers who have used an operator provided set-top box to watch streaming services tend to keep using it; 58% do so to access Netflix, 61% for Amazon, and 57% for Hulu.
VectorMax´s pioneering of technologies that increase the efficiencies in delivering IP video over large scale, fully developed, and imperfect networks, solves the evolution of live linear broadcast television to on-network online delivery. The Company holds 102 worldwide patents grounded in software-based IP transport delivery technologies. Discover more at www.vectormax.com.
