Sony, Tripleplay Services team on IPTV service to facilities in Australia, New Zealand

Australia and New Zealand-based hospitals, hotels, schools and stadiums will be the targets of a partnership formed between Sony Australia and Tripleplay Services that aims to deliver IPTV, video-on-demand and digital signage to non-residential facilities.

The companies will use Sony's hardware in "the design and delivery of complex broadcast systems and studio installations" and Tripleplay's "specialized IP media solutions … specifically designed to meet the requirements of … corporate, education, hospitality and healthcare," according to a joint press release.

It's not the first time the two have worked together. Other projects have included the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in South Africa where Sony screens stream Tripleplay VOD, IPTV channels and live broadcasts as well as digital signage.

"Successfully delivering and streaming live content to so many Sony devices at any one time makes the partnership with Tripleplay unique," Sony Australia Professional Solutions Division General Manager Garry Rhodin said in the release. "As a result, we have now extended our proven relationship with Tripleplay into Australia and New Zealand."
