Ziggo, the largest cable operator in The Netherlands with 2.2 million digital TV subscribers, has picked ActiveVideo Networks' CloudTV virtual set-top box platform to deliver an advanced VOD user interface from the network.
Under the agreement, Ziggo will use the CloudTV H5 platform to initially deploy video-on-demand navigation and guide functionality -- including enhanced search, discovery and previews -- to existing set-top boxes. The deal represents ActiveVideo's first win with a major European operator.
"Service providers deploying advanced navigation, guides and other content need long-term, flexible solutions that will support any current or future device," Ronald Brockmann, ActiveVideo's managing director for Europe, said in a statement. "The selection of CloudTV will allow Ziggo to deliver rich, engaging services without replacing existing set-top boxes."
