Machine-learning technology from Liberate AI allows tailored ad insertion for linear TV, VoD and catch-up across all devices including TV, tablet, mobile, and TV web portals. The system also provides search and recommendation services to customers, based on the Liberate AI machine-learning platform.

The new platform supports advanced dynamic user interface generation on all devices, based on mediaClass’ advanced Content and Operational Management. mediaClass uniquely provides all elements of a TV platform including an advanced packager, multi-DRM, OTT backend, CDN plus apps for devices and a TV Web portal. Antenna Hungária plans to launch the full service in December.

Zsolt Sarecz, CEO of Antenna Hungary, comments: “The Azdio team is enabling us to bring to life our long-term vision with their end-to-end mediaClass platform. They have helped at every stage from initially defining our TV strategy through to system design and integration. They have also provided all the products required for the OTT and DTT services, including their high-performance Swiftclass DTT STB software. This will allow the Hungarian market to experience one of the most advanced DTT services in the world.”

Dr. Arjang Zadeh CEO Azdio adds: “We are delighted to support Antenna Hungária’s management and Hungarian viewers to power this pioneering DTT service. It has been a pleasure to work with Antenna Hungária’s forward-thinking management and their excellent business and technical teams. Our focus on system optimisation and low cost execution has meant that Antenna Hungária has achieved long term planned functionality significantly sooner than anticipated and at lower cost.”

Dejero Transforms KNSD-TV and KUAN-LD and rsquo;s Mobile Broadcast Truck into Mobile TV Station

Dejero has made it possible for broadcasters NBC San Diego, KNSD-TV and KUAN-LD, to turn its new mobile broadcast truck into a self-contained, end-to-end mobile TV studio. The Dejero equipment on board the truck — including the Dejero GateWay M6E6 network aggregation device, PathWay E encoder, and a WayPoint 104 receiver — gives KNSD-TV and KUAN-LD the bandwidth to work fully independently in the field, processing, editing and distributing live raw video without reliance on teams and equipment located back at the broadcast facility. The truck, which was built by Emmy award-winning truck builder and mobile integrator, Accelerated Media Technologies, (AMT), is able to act as a backup station in case the main broadcast facility needs to be evacuated, a scenario that could have happened during the recent COVID-19 pandemic.
