Sweden's Com Hem to use SeaChange's software platform for its VoD service

MUMBAI: SeaChange International, a global multi-screen video software company, has said that Swedish cable television operator, Com Hem, has selected the SeaChange Adrenalin video platform for its new Tivo service.

Due for rollout later this year, Com Hem‘s new offering will include broadcast TV channels, VOD (video-on-demand), catch-up TV and start-over for DVB-based (Digital Video Broadcasting) TiVo set-tops, Lan set-tops, smartphones and tablets.

Com Hem will use the Adrenalin video platform to integrate and manage a wide range of third-party components. These include TiVo‘s client solution and other third-party vendors in the ecosystem. SeaChange will provide its Professional Services to handle integration, customization and deployment.

Com Hem manager R&D Jens Persson said, "Com Hem aims to offer subscribers the latest services in compelling bundles. With SeaChange‘s technology and services we can do that. The open Adrenalin architecture means we can integrate our existing equipment and systems effortlessly. And because it‘s easy to expand, the back office can grow as quickly as we do".

SeaChange SVP & GM Europe Middle East and Africa and APAC Andrei Noppe said, "We are delighted to support Com Hem in its rapid growth. Throughout Europe, customers come to SeaChange for our deep experience and expertise in on-demand service development. Our agreement with Com Hem marks continued expansion of SeaChange‘s strong presence in the Nordic and Baltic region, with customers from Denmark to Estonia."

About 40 per cent, or 1.75 million, of Sweden‘s households are connected to Com Hem‘s network. This gives them access to TV channels, HDTV and TV on Demand, as well as broadband and fixed line services. Com Hem is the latest European operator to choose SeaChange‘s next generation Adrenalin as a foundation for its VoD services.

Adrenalin is based on an open service-oriented architecture which delivers a television experience that scales to serve millions of assets to any video device across multiple network types, either deployed in a network or in a hosted model. SeaChange‘s customers across Europe serve an estimated 36 million subscribers on televisions, PCs, tablets and mobile phones.
