Charter Dives Into Tandberg’s ‘OpenStream’

Charter Communications Inc. has expanded its deployment of Tandberg Television’s “OpenStream Digital Services” platform to support a national rollout of digital on-demand services, the vendor said.

The MSO has now deployed OpenStream in multiple markets within seven states -- Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin -- with multiple server vendors, billing systems and set-top manufacturers, Tandberg said.

“OpenStream's flexibility and ability to interoperate with multiple digital networks, video-on-demand servers, billing systems and on-demand applications is a key reason why we chose Tandberg Television to support our VOD deployments across the country," Charter vice president of advanced engineering, digital video Pragash Pillai said in a prepared statement.
