NAB: GulfPines chooses Falcon, Verimatrix

Mississippi-based GulfPines Communications is using the Falcon IP/Complete IPTV delivery system and the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System for IPTV, the companies announced at NAB 2009 in Las Vegas, where the two vendors are demonstrating the Falcon system.

Falcon IP/Complete, which is the U.S. partner of French video technology firm Thomson, and Verimatrix long have supported an integrated, end-to-end solution for content aggregation and delivery that appeals to regional and rural telcos looking for wholesale help. The companies also recently worked with GTel Teleconnections in Germantown, N.Y.

GulfPines President Charles F. Fail said in a press release: "We selected the integrated Falcon IP/Complete and Verimatrix solution because it is the only one that meets all our needs. The solution is a standards-based IPTV solution featuring all elements from a single provider, from satellite to the set-top box. Because it is completely integrated, the solution offers flexible delivery for optimal efficiency. With the Falcon solution, we will make one call - 24/7 - for any service or technical issue.  This will allow us to provide the excellent service our customers expect.  It will also enable us to promptly offer new services in the future."
