Turku, Finland – 1 September 2015 – Teleste Corporation, a leading provider of video and broadband technologies and related services, announced today that the company will introduce a new application module to its Teleste Luminato headend platform.

Code your own headend applications!

The new application module harnesses Teleste Luminato with a full-featured Linux computer. As an integral part of the headend, the module makes it possible to code headend applications for various needs and application areas,
including remote management, stream analysis, Near Video on Demand, CA Server and many more.

As an example, you could code an application to deliver Internet radio and video channels to the hotel TV. Or, for emergency cases, you can develop a messaging application that allows you to deliver emergency alerts and notifications to TV screens in guest rooms and public areas. Also, different types of EPG applications are possible, as shown by Teleste’s own EPG module that addresses the needs of easy and flexible EIT information gathering and management.

For any type of application that addresses your needs: you can independently code the application by yourself, just as you would do it on a separate server. Only imagination is your limit! Or, if you have an idea, but no desire to code the application, Teleste can provide the coding for you as a service.

In order to answer their customers’ expectations of supreme TV and video services, service providers need video headend solutions that meet the various demands flexibly and efficiently. As a part of our complete headend solution, the Teleste Luminato, Teleste now wishes to take headend development even a step further and offer service providers a means to address their case-by-case requirements”, stated Pasi Järvenpää, SVP of Research and Development for Teleste. “Introducing open application development to headends also opens up new possibilities for all those developers who pro-actively search for visionary solutions for future TV and video services”, continued Mr. Järvenpää.
