Uniguest announced the acquisition of UCView, a leader in engagement technology with a focus on digital signage and IPTV. UCView will merge into Tripleplay, Uniguest’s digital signage and IPTV brand, but will continue to serve its customers across stadiums, corporations, education, retail and other industries.
UCView is able to be installed as a cloud solution or on a local server. The hardware-agnostic solution offers standard digital signage features, including content automation, real-time player communication, smart TV support, API integrations and IPTV solutions.
“Adding UCView to the portfolio is an exciting next step in the growth of our company,” Uniguest CEO Jeff Hiscox said. “The technology stack and customer base is similar to our Tripleplay division and will be a complementary fit into our organization. We look forward to continuing to offer our customers the best in digital engagement technology and 24/7 support.”
Guy Avital, UCView founder and CEO, will stay on after the acquisition as EVP of UCView.
“Tripleplay has focussed its development on creating simple to use, comprehensive and secure digital engagement technologies and UCView has done the same,” said Steve Rickless, Tripleplay CEO. “Bringing our businesses together will allow us to continue to provide best-of-breed, use-case specific solutions to our partners and clients and further extend our position as market leader in the IPTV and Digital Signage space.”
