LAS VEGAS -- Kabel Deutschland (KD), a Vodafone Company and, by supplying households in thirteen German federal states with TV and broadband services, Germany's largest cable operator, announced today the partnership with Cisco to create its next generation video service. Uniquely, the next generation video service converges TV content, including broadcast, on-demand, catch-up, and time-shift TV with Internet video of all types, to create the industry's first comprehensive video-hub for the home.

Subscribers can access all the video they consume through a single immersive user interface which works across all their TVs and personal devices, and is their unified portal to all the forms of video they consume. The next generation video service presents content choices personalised to the needs of each viewer and drawn both from TV and the Internet.

Kabel Deutschland‘s next generation video service is based on a new cloud-powered TV platform which KD is developing together with Cisco. The platform moves control and functionality into the cloud, making it quick and easy for Kabel Deutschland to update features, and offer new services. In the home, the next generation video service will use connected devices from Cisco, again selected to offer the capacity, connectivity and features necessary to deliver on the open, integrated home-hub concept.
