Doug Strachota, Director of Product Management for OTT Solutions with Technicolor, believes network service providers in Latin America face significant challenges from OTT content providers, but Android TV technology offers a means for them to effectively respond to this threat. We caught up with Strachota, and asked a few questions regarding the matter
In the race to feed the need for speed demanded by consumers, DOCSIS 3.1 offers cable providers an opportunity to deliver gigabit performance to subscribers that competes effectively with fiber technologies. Moreover, operators can choose from a wide array of migration strategies depending on market conditions in the regions they serve.
By combining new cable-based gigabit access technologies with managed Wi-Fi services, cable operators will be well positioned to make further inroads into the rapidly growing multi-billion dollar small and medium-sized business (SMB) market in North America.
Edge computing is the natural next step from cloud computing and provides network service providers (NSPs) with an opportunity to leverage its unique position inside subscribers’ homes to create new revenue streams .
"Technicolor is working with chip-set partners to integrate all the necessary parameters, interfaces and other information needed to support managed wireless services in the home – using Wi-Fi Doctor -- into its software development kits (SDKs)."
In the regions of Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), adoption of Wi-Fi in the home is on the rise. With that comes increasing pressure for network service providers (NSPs) to deliver Wi-Fi services that meet customers’ performance and quality expectations and also generate new revenue opportunities. The Future Trust recently sat down with Bart Vercammen, Vice President Of Product Management at Technicolor’s Connected Home Division, to hear about the Wi-Fi opportunities for NSPs in...
Network service providers (NSPs) are scrambling to deliver integrated over-the-top (OTT) TV, video-on-demand, and content experiences their customers can enjoy anytime, anywhere, and on any device they choose. But they face challenges. There’s stiff competition from over-the-top (OTT) providers, and telcos and traditional NSPs are struggling with upgrading all of the legacy equipment they have already out in the field.
Consumer expectations for continuous connectivity across a range of devices in the home are elevating the importance for network service providers (NSPs) to offer robust “always on” Wi-Fi services in the home. People around the world have become accustomed to constantly consuming content and services on smart phones and tablets. This is creating demand for in-home Wi-Fi connectivity that is both pervasive and resilient.
As Wi-Fi technology continues to advance, opportunities are being created for network operators to offer new services and improved functionality to meet growing demands for high-quality wireless services in the home. Technicolor and Quantenna Communications are working closely to provide communication service providers (CSPs) with the products they need.
The Spanish television market has become increasingly active and exciting as new players and service providers enter the market. Pay TV, in particular, is at an inflection point, providing new opportunities for telecommunications operators to differentiate themselves from competitors. This is becoming an increasingly important issue as the pay-to-view TV market continues to grow across the board, and new over-the-top (OTT) services penetrate the Spanish market.
The surge of interest in – and deployment of – high dynamic range (HDR) and deep color technologies, such as wider color gamut (WCG), is fast becoming a game-changer for content creators, broadcasters, consumer electronics manufacturers, and consumers.
Barbara Lange, Executive Director, Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers, discusses how standards are more critical than ever in this technologically advanced and video driven environment.
The Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) continues to advance the delivery of next-generation broadcast services by defining how to support mobile television, 3D television, 4K ultra-high definition (UHD), high dynamic range (HDR), high frame rate (HFR), and wide color gamut (WCG) video capabilities. We sat down with Alan Stein, Technicolor’s Vice President for Technology Development and Standards, to discuss ATSC 3.0, the standards process, and how the SL-HDR1 solution creates new...
Globalization, complexity, costs and eCommerce are creating key challenges and forging business-to-business and direct-to-consumer models into a single omni-channel.
