Cheseaux, Switzerland – September 03, 2007 – Quative Limited, a Kudelski Group (SWX:KUD.VX) company, is supplying its IPTV Service Delivery Platform (SDP) to T-Com Innovations GmbH, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom, for an interactive TV pilot project. A demonstration of the Quative powered T-Com Innovation GmbH interactive TV pilot services can be seen on the Nagravision – Kudelski Group stand #1.461 at the IBC2007 trade show in Amsterdam.

“With this interactive TV pilot we are testing innovative service concepts with a limited number of subscribers under real deployment conditions,” said Thomas Staneker, SVP of T-Com Innovation GmbH. “The Quative IPTV platform allows us to easily support multiple application partners for a host of new interactive services.”

Besides the next generation Quative IPTV SDP, the pilot is using the hybrid ADB-3810TW settop boxes supporting IP on-demand applications and DVB-T free-to-air channels.

“We are delighted to work with T-Com Innovation GmbH and its chosen set-top box providers to support them in the development of new IPTV services,” stated Sebastian Kramer, CEO of Quative Limited.

The Quative next generation IPTV SDP is based on the industry leading "Service Oriented Architecture" approach where core Java services are fully published to application developers on the server side. Different embedded client application environments such as browser, Flash Macromedia, SVG, or Java for different devices can be supported on a case-by-case basis using independent APIs to ensure the portability of such applications across different vendors’ devices. Using the Quative platform and its server and client side open developer program shortens the time it takes to develop a new IPTV application and provides a quicker time to market for new and innovative services.
