mgMEDIA has come to an agreement with Altran, European leader in innovation and strategic consulting, for the distribution of mgMEDIA's Open4Content multi-device platform in various European countries. Over 30.86% of Altran's activity is dedicated to telecommunications. Altran works with top companies such as Spanish Telefónica and UK's Vodafone, and has agreements with other companies like Nortel, Microsoft or Opencloud.

The strength of this agreement is founded in the power of mgMEDIA's over-the-top technology and Altran's experience in the IT sector. Open4Content, mgMEDIA's four screen digital distribution platform (Smart TVs, tablets, Smartphones and computers), is already the technology used in digital distribution strategies of leader entertainment companies such as Samsung Movies in Spain or Fastweb(Swisscom) in Italy. Thanks to Open4Content, users can enjoy contents purchased in any of their internet-connected devices, which are also synchronized, so the content purchased in one device is available in all the others, and users may resume that content in the exact point they paused it in another device, among many other benefits.

Altran's European delegations will offer Open4Content as a product in its portfolio, which will allow the innovative technology of mgMEDIA become well known among big companies of this sector in this decisive moment when Smart TVs are becoming more popular. The 20 million existing Smart TVs will increase to 800 million units in the next five years.

"We are convinced that our agreement with Altran will make our digital distribution technology reach the most important European telecommunication companies, which have always been in our strategic spotlight. This way, millions of clients will be able to enjoy the four screen experience and watch movies and any kind of digital content while they're on the bus or simply on the living room couch, for example, but also very accessible prices and high definition or 3D", declared Jerónimo Macanás, CEO of mgMEDIA.

"The inclusion of mgMEDIA's technology in our European solutions portfolio is of key importance in Altran's strategy, since connected solutions are one of the most important elements in our worldwide activity. Relying on such a powerful Spanish company is a vital motivation boost in the multinational development of these solutions", said Luis Manuel Díaz de Terán, Business development director of the telecommunications and media division of Altran.
