OBERHAUSEN, Germany -- ACCESS CO., LTD, a global provider of advanced software solutions to the mobile, beyond-PC and digital TV markets, today announced that its ACCESSMyTV™ social TV and over-the-top platform is planned to launch in Germany during Q4 2012. ACCESSMyTV is integrated with a new Fortis DVB-S2 HbbTV ready set-top box, enabling consumers to build and share OTT channels through Facebook. Expected to be available in German retail from Q4 2012, ACCESSMyTV will be demonstrated running on a Fortis set-top box at IBC on the ACCESS (14.103) and Fortis (4.B70) exhibition stands.

The ACCESSMyTV powered set-top box from Fortis enables German consumers to watch and interact with terrestrial TV, enjoy OTT content using HbbTV plus build their own personal TV OTT web video channels, watch them back on any device connected to the internet and take part in the Social TV revolution through integration with social media networks such as Facebook. This social network sharing of user-built personal web video channels will drive consumers towards ACCESSMyTV and the Fortis set-top box and enable them to see how they too can share in Germany’s ACCESSMyTV powered social TV revolution.

“ACCESSMyTV really puts German consumers at the frontier of next generation TV through its integration of social media and OTT with Germany’s HbbTV Smart TV applications,” said Dr. Neale Foster, VP of Global Sales IA, ACCESS. “With this launch Germany’s consumers can build personal web video channels, watch them back on any device and use social media networks such as Facebook to publicize and share these channels. I’m really looking forward to watching this powerful viral marketing effect working for both ACCESS and Fortis,” concluded Dr. Foster.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
