Club iT and Alcatel Supply Gaming-on-Demand in Cyprus

Club iT Corporation, a subsidiary of SOFTBANK Broadmedia Corp., partnered with Alcatel to supply an on-demand gaming solution for CYTA, the incumbent telecommunications organisation in Cyprus.

Club iT's G-cluster solution is fully integrated with Alcatel's Open Media Platform (OMP) IPTV middleware suite. Customers are able to play the latest console and PC games on their set-top boxes (STBs). The games are hosted and executed in one of 6 miVision server centers. G-cluster servers stream the video and sound output to the STB. User input (jump, move left, fire, etc) is sent from the STB to the appropriate server centre. Players can use remote controls, keyboards, or USB game pads connected to the STB as input devices.

Alcatel serves as the reseller and system integrator for the DSL-enabled service.
