STOCKHOLM -- Leading TV technology providers have integrated their consumer devices, content protection solutions, video servers and applications software with the new Ericsson IPTV solution, an open, carrier-class solution that is designed to drive the future of converged and blended communications and entertainment services.

The end-to-end IPTV solution is aligned with the Open IPTV Forum specifications and is the first solution in the world to be pre-integrated with IMS. It brings together core Ericsson solutions - new IMS-enabled IPTV middleware, IPTV network infrastructure, market-leading video processing solutions and video-on-demand technologies - with interoperable third-party products from key TV players such as Accedo Broadband, Agama Technologies, Amino, HP, SecureMedia, Sun Microsystem, Tilgin, Verimatrix, and ZyXEL.

Eric Cooney, head of TV Solutions, Ericsson, says: "Ericsson has combined its leading network solutions, digital television solutions, consulting and systems integration capabilities, with key industry partners, to launch an industry-shaping TV platform that delivers on the vision of the Individual TV Experience. Our focus is on enabling operators to differentiate their TV offerings and offer innovative services that attract, retain and excite the consumer.

"Our new IPTV middleware has been designed in line with open standards so that it can fully interoperate with third-party suppliers. This means that as prime integrator, we can offer our customers a choice of best-in-class, fully-tested products, as part of a pre-integrated end-to-end system."
