Ålcom is a company from the Åland Islands that sells broadband, mobile telephony and digital TV services. The following products are delivered outside the Åland Island.
IPTV is defined as the secure and reliable delivery of video and related services to subscribers. These services may include, for example, Live TV, Video On Demand (VOD) and Interactive TV. These services are delivered across an access agnostic, packet switched network that utilizes the IP protocol to transport the audio, video and control signals. In contrast to video over the public Internet, with IPTV deployments, network security and performance are tightly managed to ensure a superior entertainment experience, resulting in a compelling business environment for content providers, advertisers and customers alike.
From a TV watcher’s point of view, IPTV is very simple: instead of receiving TV programs as broadcast signals that enter your home from a rooftop antenna, satellite dish, or fiber-optic cable, you get them streamed (downloaded and played almost simultaneously) through your Internet connection. You watch the program either on a set-top box (a kind of adapter that fits between your Internet connection and your existing television receiver, decoding incoming signals so your TV can display Internet programs) or directly through an app in your Smart-TV.
By using Smart TVs, you can reduce the need for the STB devices for the users already owning Smart TV at home. This improves the TV experience for the end user, with a decreasing number of home devices and using only one remote control, and most importantly, it reduces the investment costs spent on STBs.
We use modern standardized HTML5 web technologies to create stunning user interfaces for our customers. Every TV service is unique and that is how we perceive every new project.
Our mission is to offer a solution that give the customer an opportunity to watch TV on what devices it likes, anywhere at any time. Therefore, we have interfaces for Set-Top-Boxes, Mobile devices, the Web and of course Smart TV. We can also deliver content to you using IPTV or OTT (Mobile-IPTV).
Smart features like pause and resume Live TV, Start-over & Catch up, Network PVR and Video on Demand gives you as a customer many options on how you like to consume TV.
We operate our own head end function, receiving more than 300 channels by IP and satellite from multiple sources. We have direct agreements and contacts with content providers around the world. By having our own head end with direct contacts to the content providers enables us to offer an extraordinary TV solution that always have up to date content from the biggest TV-channels.
