Kingston inmedia introduces new iTV services

Kingston inmedia, the satellite-centric broadband solutions provider of Kingston Communications (KCOM.L), has announced that its services designed specifically for interactive TV (iTV) producers and operators are being enhanced with new offerings that lower the cost of entry, and are designed to drive the take-up of interactive TV.
"Up until now interactive TV applications have mostly been the preserve of large broadcasters wielding large budgets," says Nick Thompson, Managing Director, Kingston inmedia. "We believe that it is crucial for the broadcast industry that iTV takes off and we are playing our part by introducing cost-effective services specifically designed to lower the cost of entry for channel owners and producers wanting to integrate interactivity into their programming mix.
"We already provide interactive TV hosting services for TXT ME, TV. We believe that our co-located media centre provides the perfect combination of facilities and services at the right price to attract many more broadcasters and channel owners that want to deploy iTV but do not necessarily have the enormous budgets that were previously required for iTV projects."
Kingston inmedia is a leading provider of global satellite-centric broadband applications, offering consultancy, products and services that enable organisations in the enterprise, broadcast and internet/carrier sectors to create, manipulate, store and distribute multimedia solutions. A strong commitment to investment in technology and facilities supports Kingston inmedia's team of experts, placing the business in a unique position to offer end-to-end solutions for content owners, programme makers, broadcasters, corporations, carriers and internet service providers.
