Ericsson Wins IPTV World Forum Series Award for Best On-Demand Technology
The IPTV World Series award judges named Ericsson’s WatchPoint Content Management System as the industry’s Best On-Demand Technology for IPTV at a gala dinner at the Royal Garden Kensington Hotel in London this week.
Ericsson was recognized for developing the best solution for delivering on-demand TV services over a managed IP network. The company’s WatchPoint Content Management System is a centralized multiplatform CMS that enables operators to expand current on-demand services, introduce them on multiple platforms, and accelerate subscriber revenues.
“Being recognized for having the best on-demand technology is an honor which validates our vision and rewards the hard work of our team,” says Staffan Pehrson, Head of Solution Area TV, Ericsson. “On-demand is a strategic part of Ericsson’s TV offering and we are seeing it provide profitable subscriber growth for our customers. Industry research predicts that telco on-demand consumers will more than double in the next 3 years and we have created a content management system with the scalability to support that growth.”
