White Label STB VOD Frontend
For glowria/Netgem a 10-feet VOD UI was designed and implemented as a white label solution. Based on this White Label VOD Frontend a SFR version was being created and implemented. The solution was already in 2007 capable of search by actors or directors and recommendations based on business rules were displayed. The solution was webbased and JS-enhanced with a quick reacting and extremely easy to use and handy navigation. Despite the low performing technical environment on the STB, we succeed to implement a modern solution using multimedia (images and video) in the navigation and in the preview. The takerate of VOD content compared to the old interface was increased by 40%.
NeufCegetel was the leading triple play provider in France serving 1.7 Mio IPTV customers until N9UF was purchased by SFR. N9UF had a streaming network with STBs in 1.7 Mio french homes and wanted to integrate the glowria VoD-service into its service offering. The chipset as well as the browser and middleware being used on the STB was quite old making it a challenge to implement a modern looking high performance VOD interface.
