TW and TiVo win tech Emmys
August 13, 2013
Time Warner Cable is to be handed two Emmy Awards for Technology and Engineering for 2013 for network DVRs and video-on-demand dynamic ad insertion. TiVo was awarded for its personalisation and video search platform.
One TWC award recognised the MSO’s “Pioneering Work in Implementation and Deployment of a Network DVR”, with that work going back to 2001 and the original Mystro TV effort that helped to spawn ‘Start Over’ and other advanced video services. The other Emmy will recognise the MSO’s efforts with V0D dynamic ad insertion, which enables programmer to insert relevant ads into on-demand programming on the fly and extract more value out of their high-value content using cable’s VoD platform.
