Total Media Networks and OTT Networks today announced that they have merged to form UUX. UUX was created to provide network operators with a one-stop, market ready Internet TV-as-a-Service (iTaaS) platform.
The UUX iTaaS platform is built on the philosophy that initial user engagement with video is increasingly taking place outside of the living room – on one or more connected devices. With its unique smartphone-based user interface, iTaaS enables a whole new approach to discovery, control and consumption of Live and Catch-Up television and Video-on-Demand (VoD) content across all Internet connected devices and screens.
The UUX iTaaS platform also includes all of the software and services necessary to enable a network operator, whether fixed or mobile, to launch an Internet television service, without having to endure the cost and complexity of traditional on-premise software systems, encompassing traditional software workflows, plus the deployment experience, marketing, billing, content acquisition and other specialized expertise needed to launch a successful TV service.
The company is incorporated in the UK and has offices in London, Madrid, Miami, Mexico and Sao Paulo. It will be run by a strong board and management team, headed by newly appointed CEO, Lou Schwartz, formerly CEO of the Americas for Piksel.
“We have launched UUX to remove the pain for Mobile and Fixed operators and systems integrators looking to quickly deploy Internet television services,” says Lou Schwartz, CEO, UUX.
