ActiveVideo Networks has licensed its CloudTV H5 platform to Comcast. Comcast is using this platform in an enhanced VoD user experience trial. The cloud-based user interface provides a graphically rich way for Xfinity On Demand customers to search and discover VoD content.
“Our goal is simple: to help Comcast make it easier for customers to search and discover new content from their vast on-demand library,” said Jeff Miller, CEO and president of ActiveVideo Networks. “Leveraging CloudTV’s enterprise-class performance, we can offer providers like Comcast new, rich experiences from the cloud, as well as a consistent look and feel that can be delivered to any set-top box.”
