Turner Taps N2; N2 Taps Teissler


N2 Broadband Inc. will supply Turner Broadcasting System Inc. with next-generation video-on-demand products for use in Turner's newly created platform research and development lab under a deal announced Tuesday.

Turner will evaluate the technology for delivery of new on-demand content and advertising services, the companies said.

N2 also announced that Turner chief technology officer Scott Teissler has been named to its board of directors.

"The on-demand solutions from N2 Broadband offer superior flexibility for testing new interactive-TV services, such as on-demand advertising, news on-demand and on-demand menu applications, and allows us to run them simultaneously on a single, open-standards-based platform," Teissler said in a prepared statement.
