Great Lakes Data Systems (GLDS) announced that its flagship WinCable subscriber management and billing system has been integrated with Clearleap’s Stream On Demand Solution.
The Stream On Demand solution is a cloud-based IP content management and delivery system that enables television service providers to create a fully operator-branded subscriber experience such as those offered by Netflix, Amazon and Hulu by streaming content directly to connected set-tops, devices and TVs.
Clearleap and GLDS showcased the joint solution for the first time at the recently-held SCTE's Cable-Tec Expo 2011, the television industry’s engineering show of the year, which took place in the US.
The two firms demonstrated the joint solution operating on a Roku set-top box, an LG Smart TV, a TiVo DVR and an iPad tablet.
The Clearleap solution enables delivery to any IP connected device and allows operators to cost-effectively provide their own branded IP video services solution rather than investing in a completely new IP infrastructure.
Operators can use Clearleap’s Stream On Demand Solution to stream unlimited hours and titles over existing broadband networks, creating a compelling content offering delivered directly to the TV.
With the Clearleap and GLDS integrated solution, operators now have a fully hosted, end-to-end advanced TV offering—addressing content management and delivery to billing and subscriber management―at a fraction of the cost traditionally associated with larger TV operators’ on-demand offerings.
