Greece’s WIND Hellas has tapped Zappware’s turnkey TV technology solution in a bid to launch a multiscreen video service by the end of the year.

The platform includes video headend infrastructure and a cloud-based back-end that includes personalisation capabilities, as well as client software for Android TV set-top-boxes (STBs), smartphones, tablets and Web browsers. The whole video delivery chain is managed by Zappware.

WIND Hellas will offer linear and catch-up TV, network recordings and a video-on-demand (VOD) catalogue. The STB platform adds the ability to integrate third-party content and applications as well.

“Our goal is to offer our customers a unique TV experience both in terms of technology and content. To this end we are partnering with top-tier providers with a proven track record of success, such as Zappware,” explained Hermann Riedl, chief strategy and digital transformation officer of WIND Hellas.

“The state-of-the-art cloud-based video solution we have chosen is simple to use, fun and personalised. It’s a high-end technology solution that along with the content that WIND Hellas will secure, will bring a new way of entertainment to our customers no matter where they are, no matter which device they will be using.”

“We are proud and excited to deploy our cloud-based TV solution for WIND Hellas,” added Patrick Vos, CEO of Zappware. “WIND and the majority of telecom operators we talk to, tell us that they require a platform to really engage towards their customers, create loyalty and trigger users to enjoy all the available content. Now, here is the challenge: there is a lot of very valuable content ready to be consumed, but how can viewers easily find their favourite TV shows, movies and series? Our NeXX 4.0 turnkey video solution is the Zappware answer to that challenge.”
