Oregan Networks, a supplier of hybrid Digital TV software for telecoms and broadcast operators, opened a regional headquarters in Mexico City as part of its expansion into the Latin American market.
“The rapidly growing rates of connectivity as well as expanding options for purchasing and consuming media have sparked an unprecedented consumer interest in cloud-based video and applications,” said Milya Timergaleyeva, vice president of market strategy, Oregan Networks. “This has catalyzed demand for middleware and systems that allow operators to deploy Over-the-Top video in conjunction with traditional broadcast systems quickly.”
Opening to serve the growing Pay TV sector and the acceleration of the systems upgrade cycle in the region, the Mexico City office aims to offer fast-track access to Oregan’s media client technology and expertise in the area of converged Internet and broadcast video.
“The nature of the evolving Pay TV market dictates the need for software solutions that can uplift currently deployed devices as well as lay a future-proof middleware foundation inside the next generation CPE. Oregan will continue working with ecosystem partners to deliver bespoke cross-platform solutions that enable operators to address these challenges in a cost-effective manner,” said Timergaleyeva.
The new location will cater to local broadcasters’ technology requirements. Industry-wide trends lean toward an upgraded consumer experience and greater service coverage, including unmanaged IP (Internet Protocol) networks, and reduced capital expenditure on Consumer Premises Equipment (CPE) have reached the critical mass and generated a demand for new technologies.
Oregan Networks’ office in Argentina is also part of it Latin America expansion plans. Headquartered in London, the company also has branches in Singapore, Mexico, Korea and Taiwan.
