Multi-screen hybrid television platform provider Sezmi Corporation and Netgem, a provider of connected home solutions, have partnered to include Netgem’s set-top-box hardware and software as part of Sezmi’s comprehensive TV offering. (For more on Sezmi, click here).
Sezmi brings a differentiated multi-screen TV experience to consumers with a system that adapts to varying network capabilities. With Netgem, Sezmi adds high-performing end-user devices.
For Netgem, whose technology already has strong penetration throughout Western Europe, Sezmi provides a turn-key service platform for operators and broader international distribution building on Sezmi’s deployments in the United States, Latin America and South-east Asia.
The first customer deployment resulting from this collaboration is under way with Grupo Iusacell, a Mexican communications and television services company, whose new Totalplay service will be available to its consumer base later this year. Grupo Iusacell will deliver multiple next-generation video services for its mobile businesses and its fiber-to-the-home business based on the Sezmi platform.
