Edgeware, the technology expertin distributed video delivery systems and Minerva Networks, a supplier of broadband Television management and delivery platforms, have announced an integrated fast channel change and packed retransmission solution for IPTV operators.
The joint solution enables service providers to offer superior Quality of Experience (QoE) to their television subscribers. With Fast Channel Change users can change channels almost instantaneously avoiding typical delays of between 2 and 5 seconds. Packet retransmission maximises picture quality over lossy delivery networks enabling operators to extend the reach of their broadband television services.
In the Fall of 2010 Minerva announced the integration of Edgeware’s distributed video delivery solution with its new xTVFusion platform to enable a range of advanced video delivery services including video on demand, network-based digital video recording and time shifted television. Further integration of the two platforms has now enabled fast channel change and video retransmission for enhanced quality-of-experience.
Earlier today Minerva announced that Go Malta a leading European operator had adopted its platform to provide advanced video services to its subscribers. Go Malta will benefit from the new capabilities of the integrated Edgeware and Minerva solution.
The solution will be demonstrated at IPTV World Forum in London, 22nd-24th March 2011. Edgeware’s stand number is 167 while Minerva stand number is 214.
