OSLO -- NDS, now part of Cisco, and Canal Digital, the leading DTH pay-TV provider in the Nordics, today announced that they are collaborating to launch a next-generation TV platform as a hosted, managed service. Enabling both satellite and Over-the-Top (OTT) service delivery, the new platform will allow Canal Digital subscribers to access content anytime, anywhere and on multiple devices – whether in the home or on the go.

NDS Snowflake, the award winning user experience framework, will provide the basis for the UI to be implemented across all devices as part of the Canal Digital service. NDS Snowflake enables unified, intuitive navigation of content and services that centres on linear programming with the ability to scroll into the ”past” or “future,” providing fluid discovery of both catch-up and on-demand content, all through a consistent branded experience with integrated programme recommendations and applications.

Powered by a hosted NDS Unified Headend, which will reside outside of the Canal Digital network, the subscriber’s home will be connected through a multimedia gateway that distributes content and metadata-based services around the home over IP to complement satellite delivered programming.
