Set-top box (STB) company EKT has joined forces with software platform specialist Nordija to deploy a pre-integrated DVB/IP hybrid solution for Airlink in Trinidad & Tobago.

The cable TV supplier said it was looking for a next generation flexible and scalable solution to be deployed on a cable network or pure IP network. EKT’s LinuxTV platform, which can be deployed on its hybrid or pure IP STBs, was the basis on top of which the Nordija solution delivered what it says is an ultra-rich and engaging user experience.

“Despite the enormous offer of set tops, middleware and security platforms, we found that really a handful of partnerships could deliver what we were looking for,” explained Airlink CEO Keenan Singh. “Bringing a user experience that is being used by many European operators to our region gives us a real proven advantage. Combined with the flexible platforms of EKT, we are changing the way video is consumed in our region.”

Jeroen van Vliet, CCO of Nordija, added: “We are delighted to strengthen our partnership with EKT by delivering yet another successful project together. Working with a partner like EKT has proven to be a great match and I look forward to advancing and continuing this partnership in the coming years.”

Richard Smith, founder and CEO at EKT, remarked: “We are proud to be partnering with Nordija. Our complete range with their market-leading platform will bring a host of new possibilities for both our companies. We are now looking forward to bring this pre-integrated solution to more clients in the LATAM region.”
