Now, IPTV, cable and mobile operators, and content providers have access to the industry's leading experts in embedded video software to accelerate their application development and design projects.
Bluestreak Creative Labs distinguishes itself with a dedicated team of experts skilled in the creative design and intelligent development of cross-platform and Over the Top (OTT) applications optimized for connected televisions, set-top boxes, mobile phones, and other consumer electronics. The team of architects, designers and application developers has deep expertise in a wide range of embedded device environments, reflecting over a decade spent optimizing cross-platform user experiences for operators and technology companies such as Bouygues Telecom, Orange, Time Warner Cable and Videotron. By providing companies with the solutions that only come with years of experience, Bluestreak Creative Labs accelerates time to market and reduces the risk in launching critical TV and mobile services.
"Given the years of experience and expertise we have in-house with OTT video and multimedia products, launching this consulting practice is a natural extension of our capabilities," said Dominique Jodoin, Bluestreak Technology CEO and President. "The creation of this practice comes as a result of our customers' increasing demand for Bluestreak's unique expertise in multimedia embedded systems. That expertise is evident in our realistic approach to architecture, design and development of embedded applications. Bluestreak guarantees a consistent and high quality user experience across any connected devices, yet optimized for each platform."

3) Application developers, who validate designer proposals, build the appropriate software, and develop the services in the selected presentation technology.
4) Content specialists, who will analyze, document, and recommend content strategies to produce an application interface that is intuitive for the end user to follow and understand.
