ActiveVideo accelerates industry shift to Cloud-based UIs
June 6, 2013
ActiveVideo has announced major advances in its CloudTV H5 platform that will propel service providers and content aggregators to deliver the next generation of television user experiences from the cloud to any connected device.
The announcement marks major advances in platform and network scalability — enabling the accelerated rollout of TV services embedded with modern UIs that support guide, navigation and rich media applications across a range of device and network paradigms. In conjunction with the announcement, ActiveVideo said that CloudTV has been enlisted to fulfill cloud-based UI strategies for Charter and interactive applications for Cablevision in the United States.
ActiveVideo also is partnering with Sumitomo to target deployments in Japan and in the Asia-Pacific market. Sumitomo is an international conglomerate corporation that provides a diverse range of products and services with 140 offices in 66 countries. In the Media Sector, Sumitomo holds ownership stakes in J:COM, the largest MSO in Japan, as well as in Japan’s top movie, sports and shopping channels.
“With billions of connected devices in the market, the need is growing exponentially for cloud-based solutions that can reduce device and experience fragmentation,” said Jeff Miller, president and CEO of ActiveVideo. “Our continued commitment to improving the CloudTV platform will help our customers address multiple needs: delivering the best possible viewer experiences, accelerating time to market, and providing the operational scale to roll out TV Everywhere-style services, all while minimizing infrastructure costs.”
