Espial to Demo Orange TV at IBC 2015

Canadian multi-screen software vendor Espial will demonstrate Orange Cle TV featuring its HTML5 based client software for User Experience (UX) at IBC 2015. Launched in July in France, Orange is promoting the dongle based version of its Orange TV service accessed via an HDMI stick marketed as “Cle TV”, or the TV Key. It is available to Orange’s 24.3 million French mobile customer base, 42% of the country’s cellular market.

Orange Cle TV provides access to over 65 channels of live and on-demand content and was launched nationwide in France after a pilot in Romania. The service will be extended to additional European countries later this year, where the operator has around 70 million other mobile subscribers if we include the 32 million in the UK through EE, its 50/50 partnership with Deutsche Telekom. The Espial demo at IBC will highlight how Orange Cle TV enables subscribers to share personal content on TV, as well as the tablet and smart phone.

Espial will also show its G4 STB Client on 4K and HEVC IPTV and QAM set-top boxes. The firm says this will feature a full production user experience and user interface, as well as concept UX for core video use cases such as EPG, VOD and Search. The aim is to help operators achieve their business and branding objectives with scope for innovation through an immersive UX and rapid service innovation.

The third of Espial’s demos will include its latest OTT applications integrated into a UX through app dashboards and an app store. This will feature a range of OTT applications including news, games, music, social media and lifestyle all tuned for set top boxes.Espial also offers professional services to back up its software and assist with integration to backend systems, as well as porting client software across different chipsets, RDK extensions and UX customization.
