In the first commercial deployment of the technology in Asia, Mirada’s Iris multiscreen technology will see use in powering next-generation pay-TV services for Skytel subsidiary SkyMedia. Customers will be able to enjoy live, catch-up and on-demand content on their smart-device of choice, including laptops, iOS and Android smartphones and tablets.

The viewing experience will be provided through Mirada’s Inspire user interface and will include many Iris features including multiscreen viewing, the ability to pause viewing on one device and resume viewing on another, and cloud DVR. These will all be managed by Mirada’s cloud-based back-end platform, Iris SDP.

Following the initial launch of this project, which is expected to occur towards the end of the current fiscal year, Skytel plans to expand its IPTV offering across set-top boxes and other connected devices.

Mirada regards the deployment as establishing a valuable product reference for Iris within the region and demonstrating its ability to deliver a complex solution across a leading IPTV provider’s network. “It is fantastic to see yet another established operator choose our Iris technology to power their service to subscribers, in what is new and exciting region for Mirada to enter,” commented Mirada CEO José Luis Vázquez. “We are thrilled to announce this latest contract and we look forward to seeing the results of what we are sure will be a long and fruitful partnership with Skytel.”

Added Skytel CEO Narantuya Dash: “Mongolian digitalisation and the ICT sector are in a rapid development stage and the key players have been engaging in a quad-play strategy in recent years. Skytel has established telecom subscribers and decent success in the IPTV business, so deploying the OTT service to telecom and household subscribers will bring our business to the next level. We seek for the best of the best, and I’m so glad to announce that after a careful selection process we have concluded to work with Mirada as our OTT solution provider. We are sure that this partnership will lead to definite success and a world class product and service to customers.”
