Building IPTV Application Components for a New Era
February 25th, 2013 - (Atlanta, GA) Tulix Systems, the innovation leader in managed CDN and multi-screen services, today announced it is growing into a comprehensive IPTV solutions provider. Tulix Systems now provides comprehensive IPTV solutions for embedded website applications, content portals, channel aggregators, SmartTVs and dedicated device services including Roku, NeoTV and Android set tops.
Tulix Systems recognizes that CDNs alone don’t provide an IPTV service, although successful IPTV services require cost effective bandwidth and quality streaming services. As such Tulix Systems provides along with its core CDN services, a set of IPTV application components that together end-user service providers can build a successful IPTV business around.
For the programming provider or channel aggregator, a major shift is occurring today from previously where they had to attract viewers and drive them towards a destination. Now these providers must follow viewers as they use a variety of multi-screen devices, and aggregate these now mobile eyeballs in a way that sustains and quantifies their viewership and value. This new era of new services requires new and evolving business models. As part of this, Tulix Systems makes available its world-class CDN combined with IPTV application components that enables the IPTV end-user service providers to create and evolve their business models to be able to harness these new redistribution opportunities and monetize them.
"Effective IPTV services require a range of application components used to build a practical IP television service,” said Mark Myslinski, Sales and Business Development at Tulix Systems, “that is why Tulix has developed a number of key IPTV application components including a playlist generator enabling a linear stream to be derived from VOD assets, online DVR, satellite linking for linear channel extensions, time-shifting for global primetimes, monetization and analytics.”
