Sony Australia and Tripleplay to deliver IPTV, video on demand and digital signa
SYDNEY, 2 October 2013 – Sony Australia and Tripleplay Services today announced that they have formed a new strategic partnership to deliver IPTV, Video on Demand (VOD) and digital signage solutions into healthcare, hospitality and education facilities and stadiums across Australia and New Zealand.
The partnership combines Sony’s leading edge hardware and expertise in the design and delivery of complex broadcast systems and studio installations with Tripleplay’s specialised IP media solutions which are specifically designed to meet the requirements of communities including corporate, education, hospitality and healthcare.
Globally Sony has already been working closely with Tripleplay for some time on a variety of projects including Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in South Africa. At this site Sony screens stream Tripleplay Video on Demand, IPTV channels and live broadcasts to all areas of the stadiums. They also provide digital signage showing live games, advertising for concourses and present dynamic menu boards in food and beverage outlets.
The Sony Tripleplay solution also enables all content to be scheduled and zoned so that the correct content is on the correct screens at all times. Sony screens can also be controlled remotely and linked to emergency systems so that fire alarm notices or emergency messages take priority and are displayed automatically.
Garry Rhodin, General Manager, Sony Australia Professional Solutions Division, said, “Successfully delivering and streaming live content to so many Sony devices at any one time makes the partnership with Tripleplay unique. As a result we have now extended our proven relationship with Tripleplay into Australia and New Zealand. Our strategic partnership enables us to provide innovative IPTV and VOD solutions for healthcare, hospitality, education facilities and stadiums that will be cost effective, reliable, high quality and critically, built with leading edge technologies.”
The Tripleplay platform also provides its customers with a robust and secure IPTV and VOD delivery infrastructure – a must in the marketplace and a key factor in any industry requiring IPTV and VOD solutions.
Jamie Hind, Tripleplay Managing Director for Australasia said, “We have already jointly created many proven, successful IPTV, VOD and digital signage solutions with Sony. Both companies work well together as a true partnership where the emphasis is on providing the end user with the best possible experience. We see Sony as an ideal strategic partner as its brand, solution set and industry experience cannot be matched in the technology market.”
