Metrological wants you to develop content that goes Over The Top

Metrological has announced a new method for operators to deploy premium Over-The-Top(OTT) content on Set-Top boxes (STBs). By using cloud-based frameworks and standardized key components, operators can streamline premium OTT integrations and speed up the time to market.

Key features:

- Simplified player abstraction

- Security and provisioning

- Code streamlining, reducing the overall footprint and resource consumption

- Lifecycle and application management

Metrological's Application Platform integrates TV and OTT experiences with full lifecycle support for TV app stores and OTT content. Operators are able to manage their branded TV app store via a cloud-based back-end that also provides real-time business intelligence data and marketing analytics. Operators have access to the App Library, which contains over 300 apps, or build their own apps with an open software development kit. Liberty Global, an international TV and broadband company, is the first to implement the new approach for its Netflix rollout.

"At Metrological, our focus is to reduce the complex engineering and to introduce lifecycle management of premium OTT content. This enables our customers to focus on the viewer experience instead of the technical integration," said Jeroen Ghijsen, CEO of Metrological. "By leveraging our experience with browser-based application frameworks, we have standardized key components, simplifying the integration of premium OTT content. This results in a reduction of the required STB resources, deployment cost and time to market. Both Liberty Global as well as Netflix benefit."
