Minerva Announces Integration with i-Velozity VOD solution

i-Velozity provides a cost effective VOD solution that is fully integrated with Minerva’s iTVFusion back-office and VOD Storefront.

Alviso, CA, July 31, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Minerva Networks, a leading provider of software solutions for the delivery of converged pay TV services announced today that it has integrated with i-Velozity’s VOD aggregation and delivery platform. The i-Velozity solution significantly reduces the cost for service providers to offer VOD content, and in conjunction with Minerva’s award winning iTVFusion user experience can allow operators to increase revenues while retaining customers from competitive threats.

“The cost of traditional VOD solutions has been a barrier to entry for a number of our customers, particularly smaller cable and telco operators,” said Jean-Georges Fritsch, Minerva’s EVP of Product. “i-Velozity’s approach significantly reduces the cost of deploying VOD services, and allows our customers to further differentiate their service and drive additional revenue.”

i-Velozity has developed new technology that delivers Vubiquity's compelling VoD content to cable and telco customers. Using a proprietary video delivery platform, operators can now generate new revenue streams by offering a full range of transactional and subscription-based on demand content without the need for costly infrastructure investments or dedicated fiber connectivity.

“By offering customers a compelling VOD experience with the features of Minerva’s iTVFusion platform, we are enabling smaller operators with the ability to drive revenues while significantly reducing the one-time and ongoing costs associated with traditional VOD systems,” said Panneer Ramalingam, President and CEO of i-Velozity.
