STC and Net Insight rollout Live HD TV Broadcast Network

Saudi Broadcasting Corp leverages STC MPLS network for more flexible and dynamic broadcast media contribution and distribution network

 Stockholm, Sweden – Net Insight, the leading provider of media transport and resource scheduling, today announced the ongoing implementation of a future-proof high capacity nationwide broadcast media network for Saudi Telecommunications Company (STC). Advanced Communication and Electronics Systems (ACES), Net Insight’s Saudi Arabian partner, is deploying the network for TV and radio broadcast media contribution and distribution for the Saudi Broadcasting Corporation (SBC).

The network from Net Insight will utilize STC’s underlying Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) infrastructure and effectively provide a modern broadcast media network, where any broadcast media service, transported in any video or audio encoding, can be set up quickly and dynamically between sites, enabling SBC to create new and highly efficient workflows.

The new broadcast media network also helps to meet SBC’s need for higher video quality, through Net Insight’s industry leading, low latency JPEG2000 compression for production and contribution feeds, while MPEG will be used for distribution feeds. The network will initially be deployed for high-definition (HD) content, however it has the capability to scale up to 4K and 8K in the future. For digital audio interconnection, the network supports the AES/EBU and MADI standards. An integral part of the contracted solution is a complete range of professional services providing expertise in planning, designing and implementing the high quality network.

“This is a market making application of technology and will change the way broadcasters cover live events and the broadcast media engineering sector in general. Essentially, our network is almost everywhere, meaning that SBC or any broadcaster who has an agreement with them can generate a live feed from anywhere in the country. Separately, this also means that broadcast media signals will be ingested IP first from their source, meaning TV audiences will have access to amazing new viewing experiences,” said Dr. Tarig M. Enaya, STC Separately Senior Vice President of Enterprise.

“Our impact and presence in the Middle-East and across a number of other geographies across the world is growing,” said Fredrik Tumegård, CEO of Net Insight. “Partnerships and deployments such as the STC implementation shine a strong light on the pathway for telcos in the region to migrate further towards a more agile, on-demand, infrastructure that the entire broadcasting world is moving towards, where network capacity can be booked and services can provisioned instantly and automatically. This is the first stage in that journey.”

The implementation is carried out through local network engineering company ACES, Net Insight’s partner in Saudi Arabia, supported by Net Insight’s professional services team. ACES is also providing managed services of the new network.

“STC’s network is now more robust and provides far greater flexibility in delivering high quality media at both a lower cost and in a reliable manner, which are key goals for the company,” said Dr. Akram Aburas, CEO of ACES.

Deliveries were made and revenues were taken in the second and third quarter of 2016.

Black Box Adds Low-Smoke Zero-Halogen (LSZH) Jackets to its Multicolor Fiber Patch Cable Line to Enhance Safety

PITTSBURGH, PA, March 8, 2017  Black Box, a world leading technology solutions provider of 
high-performance KVM, professional A/V signal distribution and extension and switching solutions, today has expanded its line of multicolored fiber optic patch cables to include cables with Low-Smoke Zero-Halogen (LSZH or LS0H) jackets.  
This type of jacket reduces the amount of smoke and toxic gases emitted during combustion. In case of a fire, this improves occupants safety as they have more time to exit safely. It also increases safety for fire fighters. LSZH cables, widely used in Europe, are becoming more popular in the United States. The cables are well suited for use in aircraft, rail cars, sea-going vessels and other poorly ventilated, confined-
space areas. 
The new cables are an addition to Black Box’s existing line of multicolored fiber optic patch cables. The cables are available in 12 standard colors making them ideal for color-coded network applications. Instead of having to place a custom order for colored fiber, users can order them using convenient standard part numbers. The line consists of nearly 24,000 SKUs making it the largest line of fiber patch cables in the industry. 

The multicolor fiber optic patch cable line includes:   
 

  • 5 cores: OM1, OM2, OM3, OM4 and OS2  
  • OFNR, OFNP and LSZH jackets 
  •  10 connector combinations  
  • 12 colorsfrom white to violet  13 lengthsfrom 1 to 30 meters 
“This expansion is in response to the increased use of Low Smoke Zero Halogen cables in this country,” says Ryan Hopkins, cable product manager at Black Box. “We see the cables being used in high-risk areas, particularly in transportation industries.”
About Black Box 
Black Box is a world leading technology solutions provider specializing in complete high-performance KVM, professional A/V signal distribution and extension and switching solutions for mission-critical applications.

NAGRA enables High Speed Train Travelers in Spain to enjoy Telefónica’s Movistar+ Streaming Pay-TV Service

 

  • Renfe high-speed train passengers can now stream their favorite Movistar+ TV programs on their mobile device
  • Launch enables Telefónica to extend the Movistar+ OTT service beyond the home and marks a European first in delivering premium TV anywhere services to high speed environment
  • Service is powered and secured by the NAGRA MediaLive platform

CHESEAUX, Switzerland– March 7, 2017 – NAGRA, a Kudelski Group (SIX:KUD.S) company and the world’s leading independent provider of content protection and multiscreen television solutions, announced today that Telefónica in Spain, one of the world’s largest telecommunications company, has launched “PlayRenfe,” a first-of-its-kind infotainment service, available to travelers on Alta Velocidad Española (AVE) high speed trains operated by Renfe, the state-owned rail network.

A first in continental Europe, PlayRenfe is a complete entertainment streaming platform that goes beyond on-board WiFi access to provide passengers with access to their favorite Movistar+ programs. A rich content catalogue is available to passengers equipped with an open device (smartphone, tablet or PC) via a downloadable PlayRenfe application and web portal. The new service is powered and secured by the NAGRA MediaLive platform and studio-approved DRM.

“Our goal for this project was not only to provide a unique and high-quality experience to Renfe passengers, but to deliver a reliable and advanced service in a highly challenging environment–this required an expertise that few technology companies can provide. NAGRA is one of these companies and the launch of PlayRenfe would not have been possible without their support,” said Fernando Enrile, TV Product Director at Telefónica. “By leveraging our existing OTT video platform powered by NAGRA’s technology, we are able to deploy a reliable and secure solution for Renfe with exclusive content and the best mix of entertainment and information services for their passengers.”

“We are thrilled to be a part of this unique and exciting launch and support Telefónica and Renfe as they roll out their service to the entire AVE fleet,” said Thierry Legrand, SVP Sales EMEA at NAGRA. “Our MediaLive Suite delivered on the requirements of a very complex project, leveraging the current OTT infrastructure we deployed at Telefónica. The result not only allows Telefónica to extend their service offering beyond the home, and in this case in the public transportation sector, but to deliver a one-of-a-kind, on-board consumer TV experience that connects people to the content they love, anywhere they go – even on trains traveling at more than 300 kilometers per hour.”

PlayRenfe is currently available on the Madrid-Sevilla rail line and will progressively roll out to the full Renfe AVE network which includes 100 high speed trains. It provides connectivity, entertainment and information services to passengers with a choice of two packages – basic or premium – featuring exclusive content tailored to Renfe travelers including live TV, films, popular TV series, sports, current events and travel programs. Online books, music and a range of Renfe services are also available.

NAGRA AND SAMSUNG ANNOUNCE WORLD FIRST LAUNCH OF TVKEY BY HD+ IN GERMANY

 

  • German satellite operator HD+ deploys next generation direct-to-TV solution TVkey
  • TVkey allows consumers to access high quality programming including 4K and HDR directly on newer model Samsung TVs without a set-top box
  • Direct-to-TV solution meets stringent Hollywood requirements for premium 4K and HDR content

CHESEAUX, Switzerland – March 6, 2017 – NAGRA, a Kudelski Group (SIX:KUD.S) company, and the world’s leading independent provider of content protection and multiscreen television solutions, and Samsung Electronics, the market leader in home entertainment for over ten years, today announced the world’s first commercial deployment of TVkey at German satellite operator HD+ (a subsidiary of SES). Jointly developed by Samsung and NAGRA, TVkey is the next-generation security solution for consumers to access encrypted pay-TV services directly on their TV sets without a set-top box or second remote.

A CES® 2017 Innovation Awards honoree, TVkey provides TV-platforms and pay-TV operators with a low-cost route to market for their services (including 4K and HDR channels). It entices new TV buyers to experience the beauty of 4K Ultra HD/HDR programming from the TV-platform or pay-TV operator instead of automatically defaulting to 4K OTT services. It is one of several strategies operators can use to attract new subscribers while reducing the cost of sales.

During a promotional period, buyers of compatible Samsung TV sets at participating dealers in Germany will receive the HD+ TVkey free of charge by registering on HD+ website. This also entitles them to a free six-month HD+ subscription, which upon expiration, can be converted to a regular subscription.

“The HD+ TVkey gives consumers HD+ channels without the need of a separate receiver or CAM module with smartcard – meaning access to HD+ becomes even easier,” said Georges Agnes, Managing Director and COO at HD PLUS GmbH. “Working with Samsung also gives us the ability to reach new customers as soon as they buy a new television through instant HD+ service activation. And because the solution uses the security we know and trust from NAGRA, we know our content partners will be satisfied.”

“We are delighted to be part of the first commercial launch of TVkey,” said Hyogun Lee, Executive Vice President, Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “By being the first company to launch TVkey, HD+ is showing true market leadership in how this exciting new technology can be deployed in a way that is beneficial to both operators and new TV customers.

TVkey content security approach meets stringent Hollywood requirements for protection of 4K and HDR content. It also allows pay-TV operators to easily add new subscribers and broaden their existing business models, strongly reducing customer acquisition costs.

“We are providing consumers and pay-TV operators with a flexible and cost effective route to high-quality services, while offering state-of-the-art pay-TV security,” said Pierre Roy, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Digital TV at NAGRA. “By integrating our latest content protection technology alongside open standards, such as USB and HbbTV/HTML5, we not only ensure excellent security, but also deliver a feature-rich, operator-branded user experience directly to the consumer’s TV.”

For more details on when the open market deployment will be available, please visit the official TVkey website.

Cortado Unveils Enhanced Enterprise Mobility Offerings for Service Providers

Cortado Corporate Server’s new multi-tenant capabilities ensures maximum security with minimal operating costs and administrative effort
(BERLIN/DENVER, March 1, 2017) Cortado Mobile Solutions, manufacturer of the productivity-enhancing enterprise mobility solution Cortado Corporate Server, today announced the release of the multi-tenant version of its software. Service providers can now create secure and separate areas for individual business customers on a single server, while managing all customer accounts through a centralized management console. The multitenancy capability allows service providers to significantly lower hardware costs and increase efficiency and simplicity in managing devices and apps.


Without multitenancy, service providers offering mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM) to their customers required a separate server for each business customer for security reasons. The consequences were high hardware costs and complicated setup and management of new customers.

With the multi-tenant version of Cortado Corporate Server, service providers can create strictly separate areas for multiple business customers on just one server. Each tenant has their own SQL database and connection to Microsoft’s Active Directory.
“With the new multi-tenant feature, Cortado is meeting the needs of service providers who want to offer their customers enterprise mobility combined with maximum security, minimal operating costs and little administrative effort,” said Armin Lungwitz, CIO of Cortado Mobile Solutions. “This feature is also ideal for companies that want to manage individual sites or subsidiaries separately.”
For more information on the multitenancy feature and a free demo, please visit: https://www.cortado.com/en/tour/multitenancy/
Press information and photos can be found at: https://press.cortado.com

Cortado Mobile Solutions

Cortado Mobile Solutions GmbH is a wholly owned subsidiary of Cortado Holding AG, and is responsible for all operations relating to the enterprise mobility solution Cortado Corporate Server. The unique enterprise mobility solution offers the perfect balance between security for the organization, easy manageability for the IT department and maximum flexibility for users.

The on-premises software includes all the tools required for successful enterprise mobility; mobile device management, mobile application management and mobile content management, and can be fully integrated into the Windows backend. IT administrators continue to work with their known systems, Active Directory groups and Windows privileges, and users can access network drives, SharePoint and intranet pages directly from their mobile devices.

Cortado Mobile Solutions follows the philosophy that working natively delivers the highest levels of user acceptance. So Cortado’s enterprise mobility solution fully supports native app management and instead of focusing on separate storage when it comes to file sharing, enables a direct connection to the corporate network. The result is a significant increase in productivity for mobile employees, improved collaboration among teams as well as convenient management for the IT department. Cortado’s enterprise mobility solution is developed and tested at its headquarters in Berlin, Germany. Also experts in offices in the United States, UK, Australia, Japan, and Brazil, highly qualified consultants at our Berlin location as well as a trained, worldwide network of channel partners provide presence and support to local customers throughout the world.

DIMOCO to Showcase the Latest in Carrier Billing, Mobile Messaging and Payment Service at Mobile World Congress 2017

 

Barcelona & Vienna 20 February 2017 – DIMOCO today announced it will showcase the latest trends and innovations in carrier billing, mobile messaging and payment services at Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona, February 27 to March 2, at the App Planet Hall 8.1, stand #8.1A67.

 

“It has been a tremendous ride for DIMOCO since the last Mobile World Congress, and this successful industry momentum will be a key area of focus at this year’s show,” said Gerald Tauchner, DIMOCO president and CEO. “The combined presence of the three DIMOCO business entities will encapsulate everything attendees need to know about carrier billing, mobile messaging and payment services.”

DIMOCO to Release the “Future of Digital Payments in Europe 2017”

 DIMOCO’s 2017 publication of “The Future of Digital Payments in Europe” white paper will, once again, be released at the Mobile World Congress. This white paper provides an essential appraisal of the key trends for both carrier billing and payment services in a rapidly developing marketplace. The publication highlights the primary factors shaping market growth and presents a series of recommendations for current and prospective players across the payments value chain. Show attendees can collect a copy of the publication at the DIMOCO exhibition stand.

DIMOCO Carrier Billing Strengthens Presence in Europe and Expands into MENA and Asia Markets

“New carrier billing verticals are poised for strong growth in 2017,” continued Tauchner. “As proof of this opportunity, DIMOCO recently signed its first customer in the iGaming industry in Europe, further strengthening our core business in the region. With this momentum in place, DIMOCO is also on track to gain a foothold in new MENA and Asian markets.”

DIMOCO Carrier Billing has a unique position in the industry as one of the first companies to become a regulated payment institute. In compliance with the requirements of the Payment Services Directive (PSD) and the respective EU-regulations, DIMOCO since MWC 2016 attained a payment service act license from the Austrian Financial Market Authority (FMA), which was then passported to all 28 EU member states.

 DIMOCO Payment Services to Makes Mobile World Congress Debut

Launched in late 2016, DIMOCO Payment Services introduces merchants to a new way of understanding payments and proactively increase their conversions. The innovative payment service provider (PSP), with a strikingly merchant-centric approach, offers tailor-made solutions for merchants, highly adaptable checkout-pages, risk- and fraud-management tools and dynamic reporting. The state-of-the-art platform is expandable and easy to integrate, aiming to proactively increase success rates through constant and personal monitoring of all transactions.

DIMOCO Messaging to Showcase Advanced Features for its Carrier-Grade Messaging Platform

DIMOCO Messaging powers communications between companies and consumers through their preferred SMS channel.  The company will feature its new carrier-grade messaging platform with advanced capabilities at this year’s Mobile World Congress. The geo-redundant platform supports multiple protocols and interfaces, including powerful features necessary to support businesses in transmitting mission-critical and time-sensitive messages ranging from financial services to retail, healthcare to advertising and much more. The new messaging platform continues to deliver the highest standards of security and reliability while combining state-of-the-art APIs helping to reduce the complexity of sending text messages worldwide and improve customer experience.

“To keep pace with the changing communications landscape, businesses must engage with their customers through the most trusted communication channel on a truly global scale,” said Mathias Höllerl, managing director, DIMOCO Messaging.  “With our industry expertise and unique DIMOCO Messaging platform, these businesses can leverage a direct communication channel to targeted consumers to generate business results.”

Mobile World Congress attendees are encouraged to book an appointment and visit the DIMOCO exhibition stand to speak to the DIMOCO team to learn more about the three DIMOCO business entities.

DIMOCO Unveils “The Future of Digital Payments in Europe” at Mobile World Congress 2017

White paper features essential appraisal of the key trends for both carrier billing and payment services in a rapidly developing digital payments marketplace

 Barcelona & Vienna 27 February 2017 – DIMOCO today announces the release of the 2017 publication of “The Future of Digital Payments in Europe” white paper at Mobile World Congress.

 Developed in a joint effort between DIMOCO and Juniper Research, this year’s report marks the fourth annual publication of DIMOCO’s white paper to provide comprehensive insights into the European digital payment market.

 The publication presents the primary factors shaping industry growth and assessing the opportunities presented by emerging payment mechanisms, including carrier billing, credit and debit cards, SEPA direct debit and SEPA credit transfers. Insights also include a series of recommendations for current and prospective players across the payments value chain.

“Online merchants are facing a real threat of losing customers over lack of payment choices,” said Gerald Tauchner, president & CEO. “As competition in the online space intensifies, merchants that offer payment choices and an optimal payment experience will not only ensure the acquisition of a single transaction, but more importantly a loyal customer for the long term.”

Additional takeaways from “The Future of Digital Payments in Europe” 2017 publication includes:

Mobile Payment Market Growth on the Rise:

  • In 2015, the value of mobile and online physical, virtualised and digital goods sales in Europe passed the €500 billion mark for the first time, reaching €570 billion.
  • Overwhelmingly, the momentum for growth comes from the mobile devices becoming primary mechanisms for the access, payment and (for digital goods) delivery of services.

Carrier Billing Revenue Forecast Shows Significant Growth:

  • Revenues from digital content billed via carrier billing in Europe will increase sharply to more than €11.5 billion by 2021 (average annual increase of 27%)
  • Carrier billing is believed to account for around 21% of all European digital content billing by 2021 (presently 11%)

 Industry Growth and Legislation Drive Increasing Need for Payment Services:  

  • European credit/debit card spend on digital content will reach €36 billion by 2021 (average annual increase of 7.9%)
  • With the increasing liberalisation of the European payments market, enshrined in key legislation such as PSD (Payments Service Directive) and PSD2, the traditional banking monopoly of offering SEPA direct debit services has eroded, allowing payment service providers to enter the space.

 

Show attendees can collect a copy of the publication at the DIMOCO exhibition stand at the Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona, February 27 to March 2, at the App Planet Hall 8.1, stand #8.1A67 or download a copy.

Black Box Adds IN-SESSION Room Scheduler To Expand Full Suite of Conference Solutions

PITTSBURGH PA, February 7, 2017  (Integrated Systems Europe 2017, Amsterdam)  Black Box, a world leading technology solutions provider of high-performance KVM, professional A/V signal distribution and extension and switching solutions, announced today the IN-SESSION Room Scheduler. Developed to improve the room scheduling process, increase productivity and maximize space availability, the multi-lingual system enables users to instantly reserve, extend, end or cancel meeting rooms via a user-friendly interface.  Users can manage room scheduling with IN-SESSION via a touch panel display mounted outside the conference room. IN-SESSION works with Outlook, Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Exchange
Server as well as G-Suite (Google Apps for Work.) The interface displays the current meeting, meeting details and a room calendar. Red and green LEDs on the sides of the touch panel indicate whether the room is occupied and can be seen from a distance, such as from down the hallway.  Additionally, the system supports meeting confirmation to eliminate unused reserved rooms as well as the functionality to make requests for room catering, cleaning and technical support.  IN-SESSION integrates with ControlBridge™for seamless room automation. The room scheduler is suitable for small offices as well as large corporations. It’s scalable, enabling the use of dozens of touch panels, which can be interconnected via an Ethernet network. IN-SESSION is designed for lecture halls, auditoriums, conference and boardrooms, classrooms and other meeting places. 
Black Box created this system to help organizations make the most of their meeting spaces,” said Erik 
Indresovde, AV product manager for Black Box. This system is a logical complement to our suite of conference room solutions which include room control, monitoring, presentation switchers, video walls, and collaboration systems.”  Installation of IN-SESSION is easy, as it requires no programming. It mounts either directly on the wall or in the wall and is PoE powered. Users can choose models with either a 7″ or 12″ screen. To learn more about Black Box’s Conference Room Solutions, visit here
