Polish Telecom Operator Delivers VOD Leveraging SeaChange|eventIS Scalability

ACTON, Mass. (Feb. 23, 2011) – INEA, Western Poland’s largest telecom operator, is now live to subscribers with its Wypożyczalnia Filmów video-on-demand (VOD) service, which is built upon a comprehensive solution from SeaChange|eventIS, the world’s leading multi-screen video software company.  Available commercially since the end of 2010, INEA’s VOD service is running on the open converged Service Delivery Platform (cSDP) from SeaChange|eventIS, which also served as systems integrator on the project.

With the launch of INEA’s Wypożyczalnia Filmów service, SeaChange|eventIS is now the platform provider for four VOD services across Poland.  The launch also signifies SeaChange|eventIS’ continued market traction throughout the region, where it has already turned on VOD services in Slovenia and Hungary.

“SeaChange|eventIS offered the combination of technology flexibility and systems integration expertise that INEA felt was critical to building a platform that can meet our current needs and scale in concert with expanding requirements,” said Janusz Kosinski, president, INEA.  “We successfully rolled out our VOD service within the preset timeline and have enjoyed extremely positive customer feedback since its introduction.”

“SeaChange|eventIS’ work with INEA is a powerful example of our unique ability to combine open VOD systems with strong systems integration capabilities to deploy a platform that addresses very particular technology and market requirements,” said Erwin van Dommelen, president, SeaChange Software.  “As one of Poland’s larger telecoms, INEA is now positioned to serve its existing customer base and grow alongside the increasing popularity of its services.”

INEA currently offers over 150 programs through a variety of packages in digital and HD versions, and also provides high-speed, unlimited internet access to more than half of its more than 137,000 subscribers. Since January 2010, it has also offered 4-play packages with mobile telephony as well as fixed-line services. Its entry into VOD marks yet another expansion to its services.
