​Teleste Releases Ubique Content Management For OTT

Finland’s Teleste Corporation, has a software framework for video content management for operators called Ubique. It can be used to build tailored and comprehensive content management systems in a multivendor, multiscreen environment. It allows operators to create an access point to all interactive video services for their customers.

“As the availability of interactive video services is driving a change in how TV and video are being consumed, the provision for OTT content has become of great value for consumers and businesses. Although new OTT players are challenging operators and their offerings in the market, operators are still in the pole position when it comes to offering a superior user experience for consumers ”,stated Hanno Narjus, SVP of Network Products for Teleste. Teleste’s Ubique has been designed for operators who wish to offer their customers an attractive navigation point to all available interactive services, combined with carrier-class linear television broadcasts.”

Taking interactive services to consumers requires a huge amount of content that must be managed and served, states Teleste. The Ubique framework, it says, allows operators to build comprehensive interactive video platforms by the means of integrating together their existing servers, billing, CAS, middleware and transcoders as well as managing EPG and PSI/SI information. It also makes it possible for operators to control set-top boxes and decide what their customer EPG should look like.

“What makes Ubique unique is the fact that it is a video content management system, whereas many other available content management systems do not have such a sharp focus on video,” says Narjus. “Ubique supports video files in various formats and makes it possible to stream them to one, several or all customers. It also allows operators to control set-top boxes and offers such functions as video capture, easy upload and flexible searches based on metadata."

Cable operator Multimedia Polska is already using Ubique to control streaming video delivery to various consumer devices and support delivery of new TV services to its subscribers.
