Specialist Applications Company Digisoft.tv Launches CastOS at IBC

CORK, Ireland, September 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --


Digisoft.tv the specialist middleware applications company is to launch its new CastOS framework at IBC. Aimed at the Telco market, the service simplifies and reduces the costs of any OTT/IPTVdeployment. The CastOS framework leverages existing consumer electronics by coupling them with the operators' smartphones. It takes the casting paradigm beyond basic video on demand services, delivering linear TV without the truck roll.

The CastOS framework allows service providers to "cast" without worrying about the underlying protocols on the target connected devices, delivering a carrier grade linear TV replacement with VOD and cloud DVR across multiple devices.  Service providers can choose one of three deployment options. The Hybrid option allows Telco's to deliver a traditional 10ft TV user experience via a mobile phone. The advanced service covers Live TV, VOD and cloud DVR and allows the consumer to interact with their TV with "One Click". They can download the app and cast in minutes.

Next stage deployments include, dongle and remote control, a low cost device implementation for the family, with optional voice control. The voice search feature gives fast accurate results, overcoming the limitations of TV search interfaces.  

"We are really excited about this breakthrough which we believe represents the future of IPTV", said Fearghal Kelly, CEO of Digisoft.tv. "CastOS connects our mobile application to multiple devices. Mobile phones are the gateway to unconverted customers and increased ARPU, and are central to a software based TV strategy. Telco's have lots of protocols and platforms to deliver their services on, costing time and money. CastOS cuts across all of these issues and delivers future proof TV."  

Digisoft.Tv will unveil the CastOS Framework at their stand at IBC in Hall 14, Connected World stand 14: E27

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities."

Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability.

We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Enterprises are striving to become digital businesses for differentiated innovation and customer-centricity. Traditionally, they focused on digitizing processes and paper workflow.
