Corpus and Jiuzhou have joined hands to offer an STB solution bundled with value added services (VAS) applications to enable operators monetize their digital investments and achieve faster ROI and profitability. This solution is available for MPEG4 Standard definition and High definition version with ABV and NSTV Conditional access systems.
It’s a great benefit to the Indian cable TV MSOs to opt for the pre-integrated VAS Ready STB as it will increase their per subscriber valuation with the revenue generation potential on each STB deployed.

Exponential technological advances are forcing companies to reexamine their business models. The Cable and Satellite T.V industry must also position itself to leverage new inventions. Multi System Operators (MSOs) are now being presented with the opportunity to monetize the Internet of Things (IoT). However, there are barriers to the adoption of IoT namely: cost, complexity and security. Therefore, MSOs must be innovative to ameliorate the barriers and Corpus, a cutting edge software solutions company, can help them to this end.
MSOs are already losing revenue due to phenomenon of 'cord-cutting' and need to discover additional revenue streams. The niche IoT space of smart/connected homes provides fertile ground, especially since MSOs are inherently well suited for this market as they are the last mile operators and have a proven track record in providing households with bandwidth and data. However, there are barriers to the adoption of IoT by households and this is where MSOs can provide solutions with the help of Corpus.
'Smart home' devices from different manufacturers have their own communication protocols and require their own hubs and apps. This makes it costly and complex for households to adopt them. Furthermore, even though the devices are 'connected' they are also disconnected from each other. MSOs can work with Corpus to reduce the costs by integrating the IoT devices with Entertainment. Corpus will use its middleware platform to integrate the different IoT device mobile apps into a single app for STBs that will be featured on the TV screen. The middleware integration solution creates a seamless and intuitive dashboard providing a room temperature control, security camera feed, baby crib camera feed etc. on the same screen that is playing a movie for the end user, thereby overcoming the barrier of complexity. Thus, Corpus helps to create a single ecosystem where all connected devices can converge. This also improves security as it reduces the access points to one device in the network.
In the end, MSOs can increase their ARPUs because Corpus helps them remove the barriers to the adoption of IoT by integrating IoT devices with Entertainment for a seamless and intuitive UX for the subscribers.
