Exset and Digital Telemedia Partner for Emerging Markets and India

NEW DELHI and LONDON, January 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

In a move set to redefine digital migration in India and the digital pay-TV space in other emerging markets, Exset, pioneers of TV ecosystems for emerging markets, and Digital Telemedia (DTM) have announced their co-operation with Digital Telemedia becoming a Digital Monetization System (DMS) technology partner.

DTM, a Shenzhen Jiuzhou Co., Ltd. subsidiary, will develop value-based MPEG-4 set-top-boxes for digital cable in South Asia as well as for deployment with some key DTH platforms using Exset CAS. The boxes will also be suitable for use with Exset's DMS technology. DMS allows digital television platforms to be created that can then be monetized where previously impossible. This means populations can benefit from new information and entertainment services, while partnering governments can achieve digital switchover bringing social transformation.

Gary Ellis, CTO of Exset, said, "DTM's management vision, global presence and ability to address customers need in the context of Indian and African digitization was a defining factor in this co-operation."

Huang Wie, Director International Sales, DTM, said, "Exset's DMS philosophy - that digitization can be monitized across emerging markets, allowing digital switchover and empowering populations via TV screen-based information dissemination - is very exciting to us. The DTM set-top boxes that are designed and implemented for DMS will be a game-changer globally. We're very pleased to be able to jointly offer high-value STB's across emerging markets and in particular the Indian cable market."

Rahul Nehra - Global Head of Sales and Marketing, Exset, said, "Exset is delighted to extend its philosophy of 'Digitization is Monetization' through its award-winning DMS technology to these markets using its CAS, which is implemented on more than 13 million STB's globally. This includes the largest DTH in EMEA, which has more than 10 million subscribers. A proven STB partner like DTM helps us in offering value-based technologies to our Indian cable partners and our pay-TV customers globally."

DMS is an award-winning solution which bridges the gap between technology and value-added services. It allows digital television platforms to be created that can then be monetized where previously impossible. The result allows populations to benefit from new information and entertainment services, while partnering governments to achieve digital switchover and bringing social transformation.

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation.

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes.

As-a-service models offer huge opportunities, but also complicate security. It may seem that the easiest way to migrate to a new architectural model is to let others, experts in their field, do the work. This has given rise to many as-a-service models throughout the industry and across the entire technology stack, from software to infrastructure. While this has unlocked huge opportunities to accelerate the deployment of new capabilities or increase economic efficiencies within an organization, i...
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, will look at di...
