Nortel Exhibits IPTV Solutions Delivering Interactive Viewing Experience at IBC 2007


Leverage Existing Voice Infrastructure with Nortel IPTV Solutions

SEPTEMBER 04, 2007, LONDON - Nortel* [NYSE/TX:NT] will demonstrate IPTV solutions that combine video onto mobile phones as well as deliver telephony and communication services into the home TV at IBC 2007, the RAI Amsterdam convention centre, Amsterdam, The Netherlands September 6 - 11.

With entertainment and communications increasingly blending together, and accessed through whichever device the viewer chooses Nortel believes that the TV will dominate more than the living room in modern homes. How can TV operators deliver the TV experience to multiple devices including laptops, mobile phones and portable media players? How can viewers get the enhanced multimedia experience? At IBC, Nortel will show a range of standards-based applications for enabling consumers to enjoy a full, feature-rich, interactive “viewing” experience and show how blended video services can help businesses bring in money as well as viewers.

“At IBC 2007 we’ll show how Nortel’s IPTV solutions can deliver a full, feature-rich, interactive experience. This will include video content sharing across different devices, managing call activity, instant messaging and even using the TV’s remote control, to text a message to order pizza,” said David Holt, head of IPTV, Nortel in Europe, Middle East and Africa.

Nortel’s IBC exhibit (Hall 4, Booth #4.298) will showcase how IPTV:

* will deliver blended communication and entertainment services that leverage current voice infrastructure and investment;
* can deliver interactive transactions blended with entertainment-leveraging web services, such as online ordering and advertising;
* can deliver any content, anywhere, anytime using an open standards approach and IMS;
* is scalable and provides a path to offering new revenue-generating services;
* will enable TV operators to securely deliver the enhanced TV entertainment experience on multiple devices including laptops, portable media players and mobile phones.

Nortel was recently awarded a contract from Nsight Telservices, a midwestern U.S. regional telecommunications provider, for increasing entertainment options for Nsight customers with an IPTV solution. Nsight Digital TV provides television programming and local content through its broadband network, and a path to new blended interactive services such as combining communications with entertainment.
