Paris, France. July 19, 2010. Netgem (www.netgem.com) today confirmed its participation at this year’s IBC (www.ibc.org) in Amsterdam, where it will showcase its latest technology developments. At the event Netgem will demonstrate the new functionality offered by its hybrid media centre STB range and highlight the new business opportunities offered by upgrades to its home networking functionality. The company will also show the latest enhancements to its NetgemTV middleware platform, including social media integration and a new 3D carousel.
Netgem will also highlight how it is helping operators, through recent customer deployments with Telstra and Monaco Telecom, to use OTT services to supplement their existing broadcast content in a cost effective and scalable way. The company will outline how pay-TV players can position themselves at the centre of the connected home by providing consumers with value-added services, such as home networking and next generation interactivity, that will reduce churn for the long term.
