Las Vegas, NV, February 27, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Minerva Networks, a leading provider of software solutions for the delivery of television services to connected devices, will demonstrate a complete multiscreen hybrid-IP cable solution at the NCTC Winter Educational Conference & Technology Showcase in Las Vegas. Built on Minerva’s iTVFusion platform and third-party components, the new solution enables cable MSOs to enhance their traditional QAM linear television services with whole-home DVR, video on demand and multi-screen video delivery.
“Cable operators can now offer enhanced television services while preserving investments in their legacy infrastructure,” said Mauro Bonomi, CEO at Minerva. “The solution we are demonstrating today enables a seamless upgrade path to all IP services.”
Solution For Next Generation Services
The Minerva solution blends QAM-delivered content with IP-based video streams and interactivity – all delivered over existing cable networks. Advanced features like whole-home DVR, restart TV, pause live TV, and a compelling and intuitive user experience can be offered to subscribers equipped with new cost effective hybrid-IP set-top boxes, while preserving the investment in traditional digital and CableCard-based set-tops already deployed in the field. The Minerva iTVFusion platform is also integrated with both legacy and new cloud-based VOD services.
“Cable TV operators continue to invest in the expansion of Internet Protocol-based technologies and services,” according to Mike Paxton, senior analyst at Multimedia Research Group.
“The increasingly competitive global pay-TV market is driving the cable industry to enhance their traditional TV and broadband offerings with IP-based services in order to support TV Everywhere capabilities, OTT video, and next-generation home control services.”
The Minerva solution has already been successfully deployed in North America, Latin America and Europe, and it is now available with special pricing to NCTC members.
