TRIAX and Ikusi Multimedia transition into one brand

Two great companies becoming ONE even greater

TRIAX—committed to our customers’ success

Hornsyld Denmark and San Sebastián Spain, 4 January 2022

Today we announce the launch of a single merged entity and brand: TRIAX.

Following the announcement of the merger between Ikusi Multimedia and TRIAX, we are excited about this next step in our journey in transitioning the two entities into a single company that has a deeper solution offering to the market as well as a broader expanding global footprint.

The headquarters for the united organisation will be in Denmark with subsidiaries in 11 countries and partner presence in 60 more.

Group CEO Ken Cordes explains the significance of becoming one company:

“Having one name and one brand is the mark of a new beginning. By becoming one company, it will make it clear to our employees, partners and customers what to expect from us. Also, it will allow us to focus further on developing products and solutions for a rapidly changing market.

“Though the company retains the TRIAX brand, we retain the deep product and solutions knowledge that the Ikusi team brings. It is an exciting time for the business, providing our customers with broader offerings and support. It is a new, revitalised company, with shared values and individual strengths combined into one.”

Becoming one company

The rebrand of the company is an ongoing progress. The consolidated product offering will be made available in early 2022.

Chief Client Solutions Officer Alfredo Juarranz says of the transition:

“Becoming one TRIAX brand resolves uncertainty for our customers, while at the same time bringing them all the benefits of full access to our consolidated range of products and services. The new TRIAX global strengths will enable to us to innovate in new ways while maintaining our dedication to local partners.”

TRIAX Global Executive Management Team

The new Global Executive Management Team consists of Chief Executive Officer Ken Cordes, Chief Financial Officer Carsten Frees, Chief Product Officer Carsten Nielsen, HR Director Itziar Lasagabaster, Chief Supply Chain Officer John Berg and Chief Client Solutions Officer Alfredo Juarranz.


First-class TV and WiFi for clinic patients

Kliniken Schmieder

First-class TV reception and full WiFi coverage for patients of Kliniken Schmieder

To make patients’ stays as pleasant as possible, the management of Kliniken Schmieder decided to equip all their sites with a reliable and future-proof satellite TV and WiFi solution.

“Thanks to the good cooperation with TRIAX partner ‘the-company.de’ and the TRIAX team, the installation could be implemented quickly and smoothly. The feedback from our patients on the extended services is extremely positive.”

— Edgar Mattes
Head of IT, Kliniken Schmieder

Kliniken Schmieder clinics in Baden-Württemberg
Since 1950, Kliniken Schmieder has been a renowned quality leader of neurological rehabilitation in Germany. Every year, around 2,200 employees at six locations in Baden-Württemberg treat around 14,000 neurological patients of all severity.

Successful evaluation of the first demo installations

After a detailed examination of the underlying conditions at the Konstanz and Gailingen clinics on Lake Constance, an initial plan for a demo installation of a WiFi solution based on the coaxial infrastructure (Ethernet over Coax + WiFi) was designed together with TRIAX partner ‘the-company.de’ and implemented in March 2021.

Together with the IT department and facility management, the technical concept for comprehensive patient WiFi was established after the successful evaluation phase and extended with an In Touch TV Portal solution. With the In Touch solution, it is possible to offer private patients a more extensive TV offer including Sky channels, and to implement in-house channels.

State-of-the-art headend technology for the Konstanz and Gailingen clinics

For each location, a TDcH compact headend is used to convert the free-to-air satellite transmissions into DVB-C. In addition, there was a TDX headend for the subscribed Sky channels as well as Kliniken Schmieder’s in-house and information channels. For this purpose, DS Players were connected via two HDMI input modules.

The administration and control of the information channels is carried out via the In Touch management tool. The DVB-C output signals of both headends are fed into the networks of the respective locations.

Comfortable guest and patient network for different needs

For the patient and guest WiFi, EoC Coax WiFi End Points and an EoC MediaConverter were connected to the coaxial network in each room. This means that a comprehensive WiFi signal can now be provided, along with IPTV in private rooms. As a result, around 200 rooms at each of the locations in Konstanz and Gailingen can now be supplied with WiFi signals. The control and management of the End Points and MediaConverters, as well as the IP signal feed into the coaxial network, is carried out via EoC Controllers which were installed in server rooms at the two sites. The End Points and MediaConverters in private rooms were assigned to a separate configuration group in order to provide an extended channel list (including Sky).

With In Touch Local Access from TRIAX, the bandwidths for the various user groups can be managed in such a way that sufficient bandwidth is available to all users equally.

All systems can be managed centrally from headquarters in Allensbach, and monitored and managed remotely by TRIAX Support in Berlin.

Up-to-the-minute information over digital signage

Special activities and events inside and outside the clinic, important information for patients and guests or the current menu – all this can be displayed in the right place at the right time via centrally controlled digital signs. Patients can be directed to the right therapy location via digital info boards.

Kliniken Schmieder were so satisfied with the implementation and the associated improvements to TV reception and WiFi services, that the solutions will now be deployed at two further sites at Heidelberg and Allensbach.

Excellent WiFi for an idyllic holiday retreat

Æblehaven Resort

Excellent WiFi for an idyllic holiday retreat

Æblehaven holiday park, situated a stone’s throw from the northern beaches of the Danish island of Bornholm, had everything a guest could wish for – except internet access.

To satisfy soaring demand for WiFi, and to provide the opportunity for guests to cast streaming services to in-room TVs, a fast, modern hospitality WiFi solution was needed.

Wishing to avoid a costly and disruptive installation, the resort owners were also on the lookout for a solution that would make use of the existing park communications infrastructure.

TRIAX EoC (Ethernet over Coax + WiFi) was chosen to meet these criteria. It uses the TV cables already in place, resulting in:

  • Quick, cost-saving installation: no new cables needed
  • Reliable WiFi network for 70 holiday homes

“The EoC system is so easy to install. We’ve introduced a brand new WiFi network to reach 70 holiday homes, simply by using the existing TV cables.”

— Johann Karlsen
Owner, Service Centret Bornholm

Æblehaven Feriecenter, Bornholm
Family-oriented holiday homes idyllically situated in a former apple orchard in northern Bornholm in the Baltic Sea.

A total of 70 holiday homes for 4-6 people are on offer at Æblehaven.

www.teambornholm.dk/her-kan-du-bo/æblehaven/

Technical details

In collaboration with installation partner Service Centret Bornholm, TRIAX provided:

  • 1x TRIAX EoC Controller 64/4 – creating an IP network with 1.0 Gbps throughput over the pre-existing coax cables
  • 49x TRIAX EoC Coax WiFi End Points – transmitting WiFi and TV signals, with no need to retune the TVs
  • More End Points planned to be added throughout 2021 as more holiday home owners express interest in the service

Hornsyld, Denmark, 2 July 2021

The TDcH compact headend is optimised and engineered to meet specific TV distribution requirements in hospitality, multi-dwelling units and related sectors, with an appealing, competitive cost per service ratio.

It is built on a cutting edge new platform where many functions are software-based.

This software platform benefits customers as they will be able to upgrade their already installed TDcH with new software releases and thereby always have the latest functions available.

“TRIAX headends are the truest expression of our values of reliability and innovation. We’re proud to be headend experts, devoting ourselves to their development for over 20 years. We are excited to see our vision for this new platform really come to life with this second wave of new versions and features.

Carsten Nielsen, TRIAX CPO

Additional input types and output modulations

Newly launched versions of the TDcH compact headend make it possible to choose between QAM and COFDM modulation in the software during setup.

A satellite-only configuration is equipped with 4 DVB-S2X inputs distributed to 16 tuners, 16 QAM or COFDM modulators and 8 CI slots. A free-to-air only version is also available.

A new satellite, terrestrial and cable configuration is available with 4 DVB-S2X inputs distributed to 16 tuners, 1 DVB-T2/C input distributed to 6 tuners, 16 QAM or COFDM modulators and 8 CI slots.

The TDcH compact headend is built for both wall mounting and 19″ racks. Each model stands just 90mm tall and the new integrated SCR multiswitch is an additional space-saving benefit.

Advanced functionalities via complimentary software updates

“In the complimentary software update we have not only included popular functions from the high-end TDX headend like Multiplexing via IP pool technology, PID and EPG management, but also new features like the ability to handle multilingual services. In September, a further software update will upgrade all models to include an integrated SCR multiswitch for a time-, cost- and space saving installation”
Dietmar Rauch, Headend Product Manager at TRIAX

The TDcH compact headend has been developed from the ground up at TRIAX’s R&D base in Denmark. It joins the TDH 800 modular and TDX scalable headends in the TRIAX headend portfolio, which has sold over 24,000 units in the last decade alone.

IPTV & WiFi in three Spanish hospitals

TRIAX

Samsung and TRIAX solution keeps patients entertained and connected

Hospitals and patients benefit from IPTV and WiFi, with no new cables needed

Beyond outstanding healthcare, premium entertainment and WiFi connectivity are essential components of a private hospital’s offer to patients and guests.

To provide this, legacy technology often needs to be replaced, but without impacting the day-to-day operation of the hospital or its critical services.

Javier Alonso of Diconplaweb S.L. worked with Samsung Display Solutions and TRIAX Spain to carry out major refurbishments of the patient entertainment systems – without drills, hammers or any wards out of service.

  • Quick, disruption-free, low-cost installation
  • IPTV & WiFi over coax cables already in place
  • No disturbance to hospital staff or patients
  • Does not interfere with critical hospital networks
  • Outstanding patient satisfaction

“The TRIAX solution enables Samsung Smart Hospitality TVs to deliver interactivity and smart functions directly to patients, without the necessity of rewiring buildings and switching rooms off for refurbishment. That’s especially needed now during the COVID-19 pandemic, when all available beds are so valuable.”

—Piotr Lipiec
EU BDM Samsung HTV

Complete IPTV and WiFi system

Smart Hospitality Displays from Samsung Display Solutions provide rich interactive entertainment, also functioning as a private Access Point for patient and guest WiFi access.

They connect to a gigabit IP network provided by TRIAX EoC (Ethernet over Coax).

“The use of existing coaxial cables for the implementation of the system is a great advantage. Execution times and costs are considerably reduced.”
Javier Alonso, Managing Director, Diconplaweb S.L. (Installer)

A TRIAX EoC Controller sends outstanding, reliable connectivity around the hospitals’ existing coax cable network.

A TRIAX EoC MediaConverter is discreetly installed on the back of each Samsung Hospitality TV. It takes the IP signals in via coax, and provides the necessary LAN connection to the TV.

All three hospitals have been delighted with the high speed and low costs of the unobtrusive installation, which has been achieved without having to close any rooms or wards.

The hospitals can then monetise value-added IPTV and WiFi services by offering access on demand.

Combined, the technology provides all a system integrator needs to offer outstanding entertainment and reliable connectivity to the health care sector.

  • Quick, disruption-free, low-cost installation
  • IPTV & WiFi over coax cables already in place
  • No disturbance to hospital staff or patients
  • Does not interfere with critical hospital networks
  • Outstanding patient satisfaction
