Mirada Plc (LON:MIRA) has announced the commercial launch of its Iris multiscreen solution for One Communications, the leading telecommunications provider in Bermuda owned by US investment firm ATN International Inc.
The provider of integrated software solutions for digital TV operators and broadcasters said the commercial rollout is a successful result of the new contract win announced on 29 August 2017 and will be followed by other deployments in ATNi-owned telecommunication providers.
It added that the deployment of Mirada's multiscreen technology across One Communications' network is the biggest since the launch of Iris for izzi telecom in Mexico.
The group said it is being accompanied by an extensive marketing campaign on behalf of One Communications across Bermuda, a territory that benefits from a TV penetration rate of 98% and one of the highest levels of GDP per capita in the world.
The company pointed out that the product - to be commercialised under the brand FiberWire TV – will allow subscribers to view live and cloud DVR content across advanced hybrid set-top boxes, smartphones, tablets and laptops, with a user interface working seamlessly utilising Mirada's Inspire user interface.
Following the successful launch in Bermuda, Mirada said it expects to replicate the deployment of the FiberWire TV components across the US Virgin Islands with Viya, another operator owned by ATNi.
In addition, the group continued, other affiliated TV operations in the Caribbean are being planned in the near future.
José Luis Vázquez, Mirada’s CEO commented: "We are thrilled to announce yet another commercial launch for our Iris multiscreen technology, this time with One Communications in Bermuda.
“We look forward to seeing this new location enjoy the ultimate viewing experience provided by our Iris multiscreen technology and working alongside ATNi for further upcoming projects."
At the start of December, Mirada unveiled the first commercial deployment of its complete Iris multiscreen solution in Asia after confirming the signing of a contract with Sky Media Corporation LLC, a subsidiary of Skytel LLC, a leading communications service provider in Mongolia.
