NPlay 2015: Local contents and multiscreen option to attract television users

Lower investment cost, be efficient and manage a successful operation from a low number of customers. With these concepts began the presentation "Pontis TV, IP TV deployments for cooperatives" by Leonardo Gioino, Executive VP of Sales and Marketing at Pontis Technologies.

He explained how the company’s platform works, with presence in Argentina and in different countries of the region and emphasized local content. He noted that his company offers radios, newspapers and local channels, plus transport information and pharmacies on duty, among others, to differentiate its service from other providers.

He also mentioned that a good experience across multiple platforms is a very important factor to consider. "More devices, more services, more content and greater interactivity to give the added value that the user demands," he said.

But the companies raise objections to the contest rules due to the price of the spectrum, the obligation of a social rate and the allocation of the upper part of the 3.6 GHz - 3.7 GHz band to Arsat, the Argentine state operator. This week is the deadline to apply, but operators say it will be "difficult" for them to participate.

Following merger announcement between Echostar and Dish, Hughes consolidates with new capacity in the region

Hugo Frega, General Manager for the Caribbean and Latin America of Hughes, shared the company's progress in the region after the launch of the Jupiter 3 satellite. The manager also highlighted the synergies with the Argentine operator Arsat and the opportunities that the company sees in that country as a result of the 5G tender and the recent merger between Echostar - the group to which Hughes belongs - and Dish, a process that will give rise to a global terrestrial and satellite wireless connectivity giant. In this context, Hughes is positioned as one of the main references in the sector in the region, both for its leadership in the manufacturing and distribution of terminals and gateways, and for its fleet of satellites and high-density payloads with coverage over the American continent.
