Netgem Demonstrates Latest Innovations at #IBC2015

Netgem, a provider of #TelcoTV will be demonstrating how its platform and latest innovations can satisfy end-user needs while shortening time-to-market, adding new revenue streams and reducing overall operational costs.

In July, Netgem announced the addition of Netflix to their list of services on the Netgem platform. At IBC in September, Netgem will demonstrate an advanced set of personalized and enhanced multi-screen features that was successfully launched by one of Netgem's major customers in the United Kingdom.

"Our #TelcoTV strategy relies on three essentials: fantastic range of content, best multi-screen experience and operational excellence, " says Joseph Haddad, CEO of Netgem. "[We give] access to the best premium, time-shifted, linear VoD and OTT content... this content must be accessible from any screen, mobile companion, TV tablet, [or] smartphone, [and] the experience must always be beautiful and personal."

The demonstrations at Netgem's IBC booth will showcase social TV features within Netgem's 4K-optimized UI, and include features like content "flick" and "follow-me" from one screen to another.

Netgem invites all Telcos to view customer successes that focus on multi-screen solutions, achieving shorter time-to-market, Cloud TV features like nPVR, reducing total cost of ownership and honing an open ecosystem.

Lord Michael Dobbs, Creator and Executive Producer of Netflix's "House of Cards," will be a Keynote speaker at IBC2015. His Keynote: In Conversation with... Chaos and Quality - the foundations of TV's New World Order will take place Friday, 11 Sept at 18:00.

Netflix has become a Worldwide phenomenon and the company to beat, not least due to hit original content like House of Cards. Creator of the original novel and Executive Producer on the Neflix show, Lord Michael Dobbs, joins us at IBC to talk about how breaking down the old rules of broadcasting has forced up the quality of programmes and broken down barriers around the globe. He will explain why when he was approached by the little known service, he took the risk rather than seeking out a traditional broadcaster to make it and what experiences he has had working with the Netflix team.
