London, United Kingdom, March 21, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Minerva Networks, a leading provider of software solutions for the delivery of television services, will demonstrate a complete multiscreen solution running simultaneously over a hybrid and a pure IP network infrastructure at the TV Connect Conference this week in London, UK. Built around Minerva’s award winning iTVFusion, shortlisted as Best Service Delivery Platform at the Conference, the solution enables operators to offer advanced television services including whole-home DVR, video on demand and multi-screen video delivery over both traditional cable plants as well as through pure IP broadband networks.
“Operators can now use a single service management platform to deliver enhanced television services while preserving their investments in legacy access and customer premise equipment,” said Mauro Bonomi, CEO of Minerva. “The solution we are demonstrating today has already been adopted by several operators looking for a seamless upgrade path to all IP services.”
Migration to IP Services
Minerva’s iTVFusion platform can support the delivery and management of multiple content formats to support the seamless integration of QAM, IP multi-cast, or adaptive bit rate streaming content to set-top boxes and other consumer electronics devices inside or outside the home. Advanced features like whole-home DVR, restart TV, along with a compelling and intuitive user experience can be offered to subscribers equipped with hybrid-IP gateways or cost-effective IP STBs. The Minerva iTVFusion platform is integrated with both legacy and new cloud-based VOD services, and natively support multiscreen navigation and playback of content sourced from either the hybrid home gateway or the cable operator's headend. Several cable operators worldwide have adopted the new solution, now commercially available.
