24i Smart Operator enables T-Mobile Czech Republic and Slovak Telekom to efficiently launch best-in-class branded IPTV and TV Anywhere experiences on a wide range of mobiles, tablets, Smart TVs and STBs
Amsterdam, The Netherlands –
March 2020 – 24i, the
industry-leading, global video experience company, today announced that its
Smart Operator product has been deployed by
T-Mobile Czech Republic and Slovak Telekom to provide IPTV and TV Anywhere video experiences to T-Mobile
TV GO, Magio GO and Digi GO customers
in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
The deployment has now gone live on iOS, Android, Android TV, web
and Smart TVs from Samsung, as well as Linux and Android IPTV set-top-boxes
(STBs). 24i has provided a single code base approach across
all three of the T-Mobile Czech Republic and Slovak Telekom services and includes data-driven content optimisation, discovery
and engagement tools including recommendations, analytics, targeted content and
audience measurement. The 24i-powered services
are proving to be highly popular throughout the Czech
Republic and Slovakia and, together with 24i, have been nominated for a Connected TV Award in Advancing the TV Experience.
Key deployment achievements
“24i Smart Operator provides us with a productized solution that provides a next-generation, personalised video experience for each subscriber.“ said Marcel Šatánek, Head of PM Connected Home & Terminal Management, Slovak Telekom. “A key motivation for choosing the solution is it's unique ability to enable a ‘develop once, deploy everywhere' content workflow, effortlessly handle device proliferation, legacy and third-party integrations, while providing instant access to new technologies and platform capabilities. Furthermore, Smart Operator has the ability to manage the linear and on-demand content services for all three brands via a single centralised back-end system. By combining the functionality to provide IPTV and TV Everywhere, 24i saves us time and effort managing our services and the power and flexibility of their solution enables us to provide our customers with an incredible video experience on all devices, both now and in the future.”
“I am thrilled that Slovak Telekom is the first, large-scale multinational to deploy our new, next-generation Smart Operator product,” said Martijn van
Horssen, Joint-CEO of 24i. “We worked very closely with the Slovak Telekom and T-Mobile Czech Republic project teams to ensure that our platform provides all the
functionality they need, as well new features that really excite customers such
as continue watching (cross-platform), binge viewing, view showtimes and
recordings to a STB or the cloud. Before creating our solution for
operators, providing a unified experience across
territories and so many devices would have required a massive engineering
effort. Both operators are already seeing the
benefits of combining IPTV and TV Everywhere in one platform with powerful
branding capabilities. We’re looking forward to ensuring that the T-Mobile
Czech Republic and Slovak Telekom video experiences we
are powering continue to excite and attract consumers throughout the region.”
Operator is a turn-key streaming video app development product that enables
operators to deliver live, linear and on-demand video services via an intuitive
user interface on to any and all devices.
