Exset launches DMS 2.0 for interactive Pay-TV

Exset BV, pioneers of pay-TV ecosystems for emerging markets has announced the launch of DMS 2.0 (Digital Monetization System) for interactive Pay-TV networks.

The award-winning solution will be on-show during Convergence India 2014, one of the South Asia’s Largest ICT Expo which will take place  on 21-23 January, Pragati Maidan, New Delhi.

DMS 2.0, available now, benefits from a completely new content publishing GUI and back end architecture. Core processing has always been carried out centrally in DMS Publisher with the content then distributed when the application is accessed via the TV screen. This means that low power set-top boxes can be deployed to receive services. With DMS 2.0 this has been extended.

Jonathan McKee, head, DMS Product Development, Exset BV said, “We keep the power in the back end because network operators are providing access to third-parties who they have sold bandwidth to – government departments, newspapers, local advertisers and so on – and DMS Publisher has to provide strict control and management. This is both in terms of not overloading networks with data that will compromise video performance but also in terms of preventing the publishing of offensive material.”

DMS 2.0 has multiple benefits: a what-you-see-is-what-you-get GUI; tight workflow management with different access levels able to be assigned to users; content control via the use of templates; depending on the assigned role, the ability to restrict user access to subsets of those templates; and template design that automatically constrains data uploading – for example images may be restricted to small file sizes.

PK Acharya, director India, Exset BV said, “A lot of DMS 2.0 is about making that workflow efficient and easy-to-use with better managed services tools. We have worked very hard to create a friendly user interface in order to encourage usage. We are very proud of it.”
