Alcatel-Lucent and thePlatform team up to take TV everywhere | TV Everywhere |
Alcatel-Lucent has formed a strategic partnership with Comcast’s thePlatform to make it easier for pay TV operators to deploy authenticated IP video services. The partnership will integrate thePlatform’s video distribution platform with Alcatel-Lucent’s Velocix content delivery network, ensuring ISPs can more easily and efficiently deliver IP video over their pre-existing networks. Cable, IPTV and satellite TV providers are working hard to enable new TV Everywhere services that will allow them to serve up authenticated streams on new devices. The goal for Alcatel-Lucent and thePlatform is to take traditional linear TV services into the cloud and make them available to consumers everywhere and on any device.
