Accelerate your deployment
Android TV is attractive in a number of markets and our experienced experts are here to give you responsive support pre and post-launch, reducing risk and accelerating integration whether that’s on the device, headend or both.
We’ll help you navigate pitfalls, swerve device vendor lock-ins and open up flexible delivery options.
Having our extensive experience by your side can avoid setbacks and overcome the complexities of implementation and configuration.
Realise the possibilities
While Android brings the opportunity of fast innovation and state-of-the-art features at an attractive price, several complications can stand in the way of success.
Operators will need more than just an application to get started, you may also need a broadcast stack, CA and PVR. This all adds up in time and money, but we can reduce your time to market and your total cost of implementation.
We simplify the process, fix the snags, and help you solve problems so you can focus on making your customers happy.
We can then help you deliver your vision and create a TV application and fully integrate it, or help you partner with an ODM and assist in the integration of the full Android TV platform into your current ecosystem to give you complete freedom to grow or innovate in the way you need. Or, we can augment Android TV with exciting features, for example, data and analytics to improve the customer experience.
More control for growth
In order to retain subscribers, and attract new ones, the flexibility of your offer is key. Lack of flexibility can be an issue when locked into contracts with middleware providers.
RDK-V provides the potential for you to gain back some control with a royalty-free solution, enabling you to take ownership of your own proprietary user interface and STB management. This means you can improve the quality of your offering, creating subscriber loyalty and customer satisfaction.
Helping you innovate
If you’re looking for an alternative to proprietary middleware solutions, Consult Red is here to help.
We bring over two decade’s of experience in media, working for some of the biggest names in Pay TV.
As one of Europe’s largest RDK teams in the industry, we support our clients all the way from initial planning to implementation. Giving you the unique opportunity to innovate and differentiate your offering at the application and services layer.
We ensure unique solutions delivered on time and within budget, with sustainable cost savings in the future where you are free from royalty fees.
From the start, we offer a feasibility study and coordinate all partners and third parties, fully managing the process from design and development to deployment.
Harness the power of RDK
To generate better end-user experiences, operators often desire more control of their broadband termination. But vendor lock-ins and lifelong contracts can stand in the way.
RDK-B allows you to undertake the development and delivery of your own broadband router, with management of everything from the interface to the backend. This means you can tailor the offering to your subscribers, delighting the customer and boosting revenue streams.
As one of the leading RDK solutions providers for the media industry, we have the experience and expertise to develop unique solutions that put you back in the driving seat.
We have capabilities to take you through every stage, from planning and design to implementation and delivery of RDK-B projects.
You’ll have control of the entire process and will direct every aspect of the software delivery. With a royalty-free broadband network, you’ll also have better control over costs and you can focus on driving quality and performance for the end-user.
If you’re looking for an alternative to proprietary communications equipment solutions, get in touch with Consult Red today to discuss your vision.
Assess your options
As the media space changes and customers have growing demands, customisation and innovative new features will be vital elements in your strategy. When it comes to Middleware, you may feel that you need to seize control over your ‘software destiny’, or you may have a vision but are unsure whether to add functionality to your existing Middleware solution, or embrace new technology.
We can assess your options and develop a strategy to manage, integrate and optimise your middleware solution.
Develop your own middleware
We can implement a project to plan, design, develop, integrate and maintain your own middleware, or work with Android TV, RDK-V and RDK-B, to give you control of your offering or remove costly supplier dependencies.
From the user interface to backend functions, we can help you create a tailored solution that delights your customers and helps your business thrive.
Consult Red has years of experience customising and creating bespoke products for some of the largest media operators. We’ll work with you from planning to integration and can seamlessly coordinate with any third-party partners.
Let us help you lower costs and provide a quality solution with complete ownership and freedom.
Get to market, fast
The addition of YouTube, Spotify, DAZN and Netflix or other OTT services can be a great way of providing customers with choice and convenience. Instant access to their favourite channels and apps is what the digital users of today demand.
Whether you need integration support, help to add new services or upgrade to Cobalt or RHoL, or application porting advice, our team can provide the resource and expertise without the time and cost of hiring and training new people.
A track record of porting OTT
We have years of experience in porting many OTT applications onto the most successful broadcast Operator platforms. The complex nature of porting means that the process can be protracted.
But with our help, our clients have been able to cut costs, integrate faster, and focus on delighting their customers. We also manage and achieve certification on behalf of clients.
The world’s leading operators turn to us time and time again, and they benefit from our in-depth knowledge of operator platforms, our responsive support and being able to tap into talent as and when they need.
