Mirada Scoops New Contract With Skytel

News Image
Mirada has scooped a new contract for its Iris multiscreen solution with Skytel for their subsidiary SkyMedia.

Skytel has chosen Mirada's Iris multiscreen technology to power their next-generation pay TV service in order to provide their SkyMedia customers with the ultimate viewing experience anytime and anywhere. The contract will initially see their customers able to enjoy live, catch-up and on-demand content on their smart-device of choice, including laptops, iOS and Android smartphones and tablets.

The viewing experience will be provided seamlessly through Mirada's state-of-the-art user interface, Inspire and will include many cutting-edge features of Iris including multiscreen viewing, the ability to pause viewing on one device and resume viewing on another, cloud DVR and more, all be managed by Mirada’s cloud-based back-end platform, Iris SDP.

Following the initial launch of this project, which is expected to occur towards the end of the current fiscal year, Skytel plans to expand its IPTV offering across set-top boxes and other connected devices. This will be the first commercial deployment of Iris in Asia, establishing a valuable product reference for Iris within the region and further demonstrating Mirada's ability to deliver a complex solution across a leading IPTV provider's network.

José Luis Vázquez, CEO of Mirada plc, commented: "It is fantastic to see yet another established operator choose our Iris technology to power their service to subscribers, in what is new and exciting region for Mirada to enter. We are thrilled to announce this latest contract and we look forward to seeing the results of what we are sure will be a long and fruitful partnership with Skytel."
