11/15/2011 by Mike Robuck | GLDS and Clearleap have teamed up on a cloud-based IP content delivery system that allows service providers to create their own streaming service to connected set-top boxes, TVs and other devices.
The joint solution, which is being demonstrated this week at the SCTE’s Cable-Tec Expo in Atlanta, combines GLDS’ WinCable subscriber management and billing system with Clearleap’s Stream On Demand platform.Stream On Demand is a cloud-based IP content management and delivery system that enables television service providers to create a fully operator-branded subscriber experience.
The demonstration features the joint solution operating on a Roku set-top box, an LG Smart TV, a TiVo DVR and an iPad. 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.
“By integrating with GLDS, we’re making it easier for TV operators to monetize new services that are seamlessly connected to GLDS’ popular billing and subscriber management system for independent operators worldwide,” said Clearleap CEO Braxton Jarratt.
Orbitel Communications, serving more than 9,500 residential and business cable TV and high-speed data subscribers in Maricopa, Ariz., launched the Clearleap/GLDS platform in October.
