Telenet Selects Cisco Videoscape Snowflake to Provide Multiscreen Yelo TV User 
Experience 
Advanced User Experience for Telenet Builds On the Launch of Cisco's
Videoscape Snowflake for the Liberty Global Horizon Platform; Will
Offer Breakthrough Navigation of Content and Services on Any Device 
LONDON -- (Marketwire) -- 03/05/13 --   Cable Congress, 5-7 March
2013 -- Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) today announced that Telenet, a leading
cable TV operator in Belgium, has selected the Cisco Videoscape(TM)
Snowflake user interface to provide advanced navigation of content
and services across their platform. 
Highlights: 


 
--  As part of Telenet's enhanced Yelo TV service, Cisco Videoscape
    Snowflake will provide a streamlined user interface across multiple
    devices, fulfilling the operator's vision to enable subscribers to
    watch what they want, when they want and where they want -- with an
    uninterrupted experience between devices.
--  Cisco Videoscape Snowflake is a multi-award-winning user experience
    framework that is based on a simple, image-rich model for content
    navigation. It will enable Telenet subscribers to intuitively navigate
    content and services across the platform -- with a focus on providing
    easy access to linear programming. Users will have the ability to
    navigate into the 'past' or 'future' with easy navigation of both
    catch-up and on-demand content, all through a consistent
    Telenet-branded experience.
--  As the portal to the operator's service, Cisco worked closely with
    Telenet to help ensure that the user interface will not only perform
    well, but also bring the operator's brand to life through a unified
    look and feel.

--  Jan Vorstermans, COO, Telenet:
     "With more content choice, our aim is
    to provide a simplified, feature-rich experience to complement our
    premium content offering. With Videoscape Snowflake and the support of
    Cisco, we are confident that we will have an experience that
    supersedes anything else in the market. It was very important for us
    to bring this experience to our existing customer base by using
    Videoscape Snowflake on our current platform through our collaboration
    with our local software partners."
    
    
--  Yves Padrines, vice president and general manager, EMEAR, Service
    Provider Video Technology Group, Cisco:
     "As the industry and the
    technology landscape grows, we risk losing subscribers' attention in a
    complex mix of electronic program guides, apps and widgets. We
    strongly believe that the user experience must remain intuitive and
    central to the platform, whatever the device. Telenet is taking
    important steps to enhance their platform and position the customer at
    the centre of the service. We are excited to partner with and support
    them through this transformation."
