Best Business Solution Grand Award
TFI Digital Media Ltd.
HERMES OTT Platform

Description of Entry:
This is a solution for TV broadcasting platform to deliver contents through the Internet and via an Over-the-top (OTT) device connected to a TV set. It is also commonly referred to as Internet-TV.

Comparing to traditional terrestrial broadcasting (Overthe-air), OTT broadcasting has very little geographical limitations. To offer the service, it does not need a license from the government. Two-way interaction between user and the content source is supported. This new on-demand broadcasting (or unicasting) approach for TV content delivery has opened up many new business opportunities. For example, TV commercials can be highly customised to suit the needs of viewers, resulting in the best promotional effect. In Nov 2014, this solution was used by Hong Kong Television Network Limited (HKTV) to launch its online TV services in Hong Kong.
Comments from Judging Panel:
The solution is robust and highly scalable. It has been deployed successfully by a number of large online TV operators in the region. The product is well-proven and it has excellent market potential to find applications in entertainment, education, new broadcasting areas. The solution is an excellent example for the integration of different technologies to become an innovative product. It includes data streaming, content transcoding, digital right management, network bandwidth optimisation, advertising bidding and dissemination system.
