Accedo AppGrid Powering More than 10 Million OTT Users

Stockholm, Sweden, 10th September 2015 –
Accedo, the global market leader in TV application solutions, will be demonstrating the latest version of its award-winning application management solution, Accedo AppGrid®, at IBC.

Driven by a growing demand for multiscreen services, Accedo has experienced a significant surge in demand for its AppGrid solution, which is now powering more than ten million OTT users globally.

The solution enables content providers, service providers, broadcasters, and other publishers, to adapt, maintain, and analyze applications in real time, thus increasing flexibility and improving ROI of any multiscreen deployment.

The latest version includes a next generation content management module, enabling a much more flexible way to handle multiscreen publishing in an increasingly fragmented environment.

Leticia Berián Sánchez, Strategic Planning, Telecable, commented: “User experience with AppGrid has been really positive for us. It allows us to adapt and customize the application presence in a very easy and fast way. Also, performance and platform operation is very simple and intuitive, so from starting to use it, the benefits have been almost immediate”

“We’re incredibly excited to join the global Appgrid community, ” commented Tore Fjaertoft, Director of Product, TV4. “As one of the true pioneers in new media, we constantly strive to stay ahead of the curve. AppGrid enables us to handle end-to-end application and content updates in a dynamic and efficient way – a key factor in our next generation offering, helping us maximize traffic and usage across all platforms.”

Accedo AppGrid is platform agnostic and supports all major connected platforms ranging from phones and tablets to game consoles, TVs and STBs. It reduces maintenance costs and gives full management and UX control of apps, regardless of platform and geography, to the content service provider.

“With more and more devices being used to find and consume premium content, creating an exciting and intuitive user experience which provides meaningful differentiation is becoming ever more complex,” commented Michael Lantz, CEO, Accedo. “Traditional content management platforms lack the flexibility needed to support this proliferation of devices. With AppGrid, we provide a truly modular and flexible approach to application management across any given range of platforms.”

The latest version of AppGrid will be demonstrated on the Accedo booth (14.E14) from 11th – 15th September 2015.
