Mirada to deploy Iris for Plataforma Multimedia de Operadores in Spain
MADRID, 4 September, 2019 – Mirada, a leading provider of integrated software solutions for Digital TV operators and broadcasters, is delighted to announce it has won a new customer in Spain. Mirada has started working for Plataforma Multimedia de Operadores for the development of its new OTT-based TV platform. Plataforma Multimedia de Operadores is a new Spanish OTT enabler whose main shareholder is Procono S.A.U., and with secondary shareholders Opencable, ACUTEL and AOTEC.
Plataforma Multimedia de Operadores is working with Mirada to deploy a purely OTT solution across their network to deliver content with a cutting-edge viewing experience to subscribers via Android set-top boxes, smartphones, tablets, laptops and smart TVs. Once launched, the customer’s subscribers will enjoy all the advanced features of Mirada’s Iris multiscreen technology, including unique tools for content discovery, personal recommendations, session transfer, cloud DVR and much more.
With Mirada’s new Iris custom launcher for Android TV Operator Tier, Plataforma Multimedia de Operadores will reap the benefits of providing all the features of the Iris multiscreen technology while also providing easy access for its subscribers to all the benefits of the Android environment and easy access to third-party apps available in the Google Play Store.
This project is in line with Mirada’s Bring-your-own-device (BYOD) strategy, which focuses on providing the Iris multiscreen technology across all major consumer electronics devices to serve the ever-increasing demand for content on all platforms.
Amelia Carrillo, CEO of Plataforma Multimedia de Operadores, commented: “For Plataforma Multimedia de Operadores shareholders, this project is totally strategic. We understand that with Mirada our subscribers are able to enjoy the best television experience available on the market, making the most of the TV content, with advanced features as catch-up, start-over, timeshift, VOD, NPVR, etc. and adding the content of the most important Streaming Platforms, and customer’s preferences, in one single recommendation system. We are sure that Mirada’s solution is the key factor to become the fourth TV platform in Spain, unifying the historic cable industry under the same brand.”
José Luis Vázquez, CEO of Mirada plc, commented: “We’re delighted to announce our latest project, this time with the Spanish operator, Plataforma Multimedia de Operadores. It’s fantastic to see another company opt for our acclaimed Iris technology and also to see such interest in our solution for Android TV Operator Tier which we launched only recently. We are looking forward to working with our fellow Spanish company, Plataforma Multimedia de Operadores, and seeing what this great new partnership will bring for both parties.”
