We are proud to announce that years of cooperation with Swisscom have resulted in a new project – a platform specialised for the live streaming of media conferences, in which Swisscom's nangu.TV video platform mediates the archiving and streaming of broadcasts from Federal Palace Media Centre. This is our second project in the broadcasting segment and when we compare this area with traditional IPTV and OTT projects, it represents a new scope of our expertise. Importantly, interoperability of the nangu.TV platform with global CDN providers allows achieving great scalability and a global reach of the service.
Swisscom is a long-standing partner of our company. This beneficial partnership began in 2010 when Swisscom became our first client in Western Europe. They decided to use the nangu.TV’s innovative and comprehensive platform to be able to provide IPTV B2B services to smaller ISPs. The main goal of the new project was to ensure live streaming of the Swiss Federal Council's media conferences .
Swisscom has been providing streaming of broadcasts from the Federal Palace in the past. In 2016, Swisscom decided to completely redesign the platform it had been using for several years: The user's GUI (director's web application) as well as the video platform, and for the latter, they chose nangu.TV. The main goal for the video platform was to capture and store recordings of live broadcast press conferences, and open up recordings and live broadcasts of conferences on theSwiss Federal Chancellery's website. Moreover, our developers also successfully installed new types of streamers and managed a seamless integration with CDN Akamai.
The solution is designed in such a way that Swisscom provides a video link for its customer's website. The videos are then streamed from Swisscom's nangu.TV platform. In the case an administrator wants to create an event or session, a nangu.TV platform API is called by the web application that Swisscom built for the purpose of directing live media conferences. This API commits a command to create a record by time period. This record is held in the storage until the demand of deletion.
To summarize that, we are pleased that we have extended the scope of cooperation with such an important customer as Swisscom is. We look forward to new projects and challenges.
nangu.TV is pleased to announce that a significant change in the top management of the company has been made.

The last week, our delegates visited the BIZIT Conference in Serbia. BIZIT (Business ICT Solutions Conference) is the most important regional conference on building business performance and competitiveness with ICT solutions. Our delegates had the opportunity to discuss key trends in the ICT sector and learn how to apply new ideas in their businesses, striving to improve the overall effectiveness.
The first day of the conference was about the Cloud computing paradigms, business process optimization, and fighting security threats. Our Architect Solution – Jiří Čermak delivered a speech about How to ensure quality video from the Cloud. In his presentation, he focused on the video, which represents the vast (and growing) share of the Internet traffic. He also outlined the way how to benefit financially from this situation and finally how IPTV looks today and how it will look tomorrow.
We are glad that we could be a part of it and contribute with our knowledge of the cloud. A showcase of cutting-edge IT business solutions, top ICT professionals, business leaders, and creative workshops make BIZIT 2016 one of a kind in Serbian region.
The Faculty of Information Technology organizes the Co@FIT (Companies at FIT) event – a meeting of talents with companies. This year was the third one when nangu.TV acted as a partner of this event.
From our perspective, it is a perfect semiannual occasion to meet with a new generation of talents and show them benefits of becoming members of the nangu.TV team. Students had a chance to get a clear idea of for what companies they can work and on which projects we are currently working. We are always open to sharing information and listening to visions of a new generation. We are aware that the future of the field lies in the hands of talented students. Students are future leaders, influencers, managers and supervisor.
During all the day there were nangu.TV’s kiosks where students could get information from our team of experts. Zdeněk Gerlicky – the CTO of nangu.TV – was also present there.
He expressed his thoughts by this statement: COFIT is an unconventional event, which is targeted at a group of future specialized engineers. I had many conversations which were enlightening in every sense. It is inspirational to meet with the new generation of talents in the IT industry.
This event helped us to provide students with interesting facts and offer our participation in their semester projects, thesis or dissertations.
This month, our representatives were present at the ARRIS Channel Conference, which took place in the UK this year. For our team, it is an annual opportunity to build on close relationships and share the vision, product innovation and expertise that serves for mutual growth of strategies.

We would like to share comments about our presence at the international IBC 2016 exhibition, which took place in Amsterdam at the beginning of September. It was our fourth visit and we would like to express our content not just with the attendance figure, which was 55,796 over the six days of the conference and exhibition.
“IBC really is the only forum that attracts a global audience, the most comprehensive exhibition, and the best thought-leaders to spark the debate,” said Michael Crimp, CEO of IBC, and we have to confirm his words. From our perspective, this event is a pure concentration of technology, innovations, and business. What is more, it is nice to see people to gather around and share a knowledge.
We always present a new development at IBC and this year was not an exception. We are proud that we had an opportunity to showcase a live OTT service VIP 4302, which has been invented by Arris for the first time. This compact HD client offers DVR and time-shift support through external USB devices. Optional 802.11ac Wi-Fi connectivity ensures high-quality IPTV delivery. The ARRIS Fast Boot procedure is implemented on this model. We were one of the first integrators.
All in all, we met business delegates from all over the world and had many invigorating conversations. The great number of visitors caused much higher traffic at our stand which made us even more satisfied.This event also represented a good opportunity to strengthen relations with our existing clients.
Thank you, everyone who stopped by! We know that time at IBC is quite limited, so if you have any additional questions, we will be happy to answer them. We hope to see you again next year!
