Infinite TV: Through InfiniteTV, connected TV viewers have access to complementary over the top (OTT) Internet video services and applications such as catch up-TV and on-demand content through a single, intuitive user experience with a rich electronic programme guide (EPG).


Using both broadcast channels and the Internet, InfiniteTV adds rich metadata to broadcast programmes and integrates advanced search and recommendations engines to provide a seamless ‘over the top’ television experience.


-NDS Video On Demand (VoD) with Progressive Download : NDS’ VOD service, based on Progressive Download (PDL) technology, enables the delivery of both SD and HD content over IP whilst managing the problems associated with low bandwidth connections to deliver uninterrupted viewing - ensuring a quality of service matching that of traditional VOD. Using the internet to download content to the DVR hard drive; once enough content is cached, the viewer can start playback and any remaining content is downloaded in background mode.


-Unified Gateway: NDS is working in partnership with Jungo, an NDS group company, to address the potential of a truly connected home environment. At ANGA, NDS and Jungo will be showcasing a proof of concept demonstration of an end-to-end system that takes a unified approach to distributing video, data and voice services in and around the home from a single point.


NDS GM Yves Padrines says, “As the pay-TV market embraces a hybrid future and competition intensifies in markets such as Germany, choosing the right technology partner becomes more critical than ever. NDS is ideally placed to partner pay-TV operators of all sizes as they seek to increase their subscriber base, improve customer loyalty and grow revenues through the deployment of differentiated hybrid services.”
