African IPTV Energized by Backspace Communications' Power Plant System
LAGOS, Nigeria, Dec 09, 2008 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Backspace
Communications, LLC has delivered their IPTV Power Plant, a complete IPTV /
Internet Television system, to Africa. The "IPTV Power Plant" is a complete
IPTV solution-in-a-box. The system includes all components necessary to
encode, broadcast, manage, and display IPTV and Internet Television. It is
shipped pre-racked, pre-cabled, and pre-configured so that all a customer
needs to do is to plug in power, video sources, and an Internet connection
-- and then begin signing up subscribers for service. Prior to delivery, the
system can even be customized with the customer's name and logo on the
Interactive Programming Guide and delivered complete with pre-programmed
sign-up interfaces. The Backspace Communications "IPTV Power Plant" system
allows subscribers to view content on all three screens: a television
screen, a computer, or even a mobile device.
"We view Africa as a
strategic growth area," said Fling Traylor, CEO of Backspace. Infonetics
reported that Africa has been one of the fastest-growing markets for
broadband connections. CTO Joseph Lea added, "As IPTV relies on broadband,
we believe that this makes a ripe market for new business models based on
Backspace IPTV solutions."
Backspace Communications offers a full complement of services to providers
who wish to begin offering IPTV - the customer experience begins with a new
business consultation, realistic advice about equipment requirements, and
comes full circle with support consultations. "Since we also built an IPTV
broadcast company utilizing our own solution, we completely understand all
the challenges someone will face as they start their own venture," says Lea.
"We can offer first-hand insight into what it takes to run a broadcast
company, bringing knowledge and experience that other IPTV System vendors
can't provide to their customers."
