- Comprehensive OTT solution with a strong focus on fast deployment and revenue security
Teleste, a leading technology and engineering service provider of broadband video and service platforms, has today announced its new Teleste Ubique OTT product providing complete turnkey solution for small and mid-sized cable TV operators to enter OTT service provision promptly and without excessive costs.

Over-the-top video delivery (OTT) has taken the TV industry by storm. As content owners now have a direct connection to consumers, the role of cable operators is in jeopardy. OTT presents a huge challenge especially to small and mid-sized European cable operators, who may have high threshold in investing and building their own OTT services. Teleste Ubique is targeted to solve this challenge.
"We at Teleste have an extensive experience in cable TV industry and know the challenges our customers are facing. We were inspired by these challenges and wanted to smooth our customer's way to utilise a complete OTT service solution with pre-integrated revenue protection that is easier and faster to deploy than ever before. We believe Teleste Ubique is just the product to close the gap between small and mid-sized operators and access to professional OTT services," says Harri Pietilä, Director, Service management solutions, Teleste.
Teleste Ubique is a solution for cable operators to bring their services everywhere; to the customers' living rooms as well as their portable devices, wherever they are. As a complete pre-integrated platform with headend, transcoders, service management, content security and end-user applications it allows managing and delivering DVB, IPTV and OTT services and adding OTT to the service portfolio quickly and easily. In addition, differentiating service development is guaranteed by the platform's build-your-own possibilities and large feature support.
VCAS for Internet TV, powered by the multi-network VCAS platform, provides a complete digital TV security solution for OTT services over networks implementing HLS. Featuring multi-format support, VCAS for Internet TV secures OTT services to multiple screens and across multiple network types, including both broadcast (linear) and VoD delivery modes.
"We are pleased to cooperate with Teleste in bringing standards-based revenue security for OTT video services
closer to operators' reach. Integration of VCAS content security platform into Teleste Ubique service management solution solves the revenue security for any device," states Steve Oetegenn, chief sales and marketing officer, Verimatrix.
