Tucano is device agnostic and supports multiple payment methods. Providing a comprehensive CMS/CRM backend, allowing an out-of-the-box integration with video infrastructure and metadata providers, Tucano enables swift integration with legacy systems. Tucano software includes access portals for system administrators, operators and resellers.

This partnership stems from the common understanding of the needs of the Pay TV / Connected TV / OTT actors. They want to innovate by bringing a new TV experience to their end users but they need a flexible solution that will integrate with their actual devices (STB, connected TVs…) and actual CMS, streaming platforms, billing systems…In addition, it allows our partners to have a better control over the management, the update and maintenance of their TV service. By being flexible, multiscreen and multi devices, the solution Tucano – TIMELESSUI also improves the Time-to-market.  

TIMELESSUI and Tucano bring to the market the best user experience and backend features across all device types and all video technologies. This integration, fully based on API, has been done in couple of months, thanks to the complete alignments between the teams and technologies used
