Over-the-top (OTT) and IPTV software vendor Anevia has been selected by Egyptian real estate developer SODIC to provide a head-end to support triple play and smart home services.
The centralised head-end Flamingo will enable the developer’s new GoSmart service in SODIC West, the largest planned mixed-use development in Egypt’s Sheikh Zayed area of West Cairo. SODIC West currently has 6,000 residents and can accommodate up to 60,000 people, offering residential, commercial and retail spaces.
Anevia’s Flamingo is an all-in-one modular solution that captures TV and radio signals from various sources such as satellite, digital terrestrial TV (DTT), cable, fibre and HDMI, to stream video content directly to SODIC West homes. Flamingo is modular and can be upgraded to answer additional demands of innovative TV services such as multiscreen viewing, time-shift and recording.
“Anevia is very pleased to take part in such a high-profile project,” said Jérôme Goubier, sales director at Anevia. “The Flamingo solution deployed at SODIC West will answer clients’ expectations by offering a high-quality TV experience… I’m sure our multiscreen offer will be of interest for other key real estate programs throughout Egypt.”
Hisham Salah, chief information officer at SODIC, added: “Anevia’s products are simple to deploy, easy to operate and reliable to stream content to any device, anywhere at any time, and are a perfect choice to please our demanding residents.”
