Vantrix, a provider of content adaptation and optimization solutions for converged wireless, broadband and cable networks, reportedly has signed a five-year contract with a major North American converged operator for delivering multimedia content to its subscribers.
Under the agreement, Vantrix technology will be supporting high-quality user experiences across a number of services offered by the operator, including mobile video and Web TV, user-generated content, video-on-demand, electronic programming guide and a mobile client.
“Converged operators, particularly those engaged not only in broadcasting but also in interactive multimedia development, Internet access services, telephony and wireless services, are in a great position to capitalize on the promise of three-screen convergence,” said Allan Benchetrit, president and chief executive officer at Vantrix.
Benchetrit also said that it’s important to optimize the viewing experience and offer new services in order to be truly a revenue generator.
Montreal-based Vantrix has been offering a comprehensive suite of solutions that delivers any multimedia content to any device, which ultimately drives consumer adoption of premium services like MMS, Mobile and Web TV, User Generated Content and Video On Demand.
With the Internet industry growing steadily, Vantrix has been launching various products and solutions that enable cable, broadband and wireless operators with the ability to launch and maintain an ecosystem of advanced multimedia services.
