Information and technology giant Infosys and French telecommunications corporation Orange on 23rd April have inked an agreement to provide internet TV to its customers.
In a statement, Infosys said that it will deliver a portfolio of interactive TV apps on the Orange Livebox Play. The TV apps will be powered by Infosys DigitizeEdge, a digital asset and experience platform for TV operators, media companies, advertisers and content publishers, the statement added.
Further, Infosys will leverage this cloud-based platform to enable Orange to deliver a range of lifestyle-centric video and contextual over-the-top (OTT) services through TV apps to enhance viewer experience and interact with their TV sets.
The platform will customise content for Orange’s viewers in France and enable them to see TV content on mobile devices or inside their cars, according to Infosys officials.
Digitize Edge is a part of the Infosys Edge series of solutions, which contributes to its products platforms and services (PPS) revenues. Since 2011, when it was launched, PPS revenues contributed 5.2 per cent of its total revenues in 2014 fiscal, down marginally from 5.7 per cent in fiscal 2013. Also, the telecom business, which comes under Energy, Utilities, Communications and Services, in the 2014 fiscal contributed 8.3 per cent to its revenues, down from 9.7 per cent in the 2013 fiscal.
