Evolution Digital has unveiled a new version of its eBOX IP hybrid STB with the new eGUIDE interactive guide, powered by Rovi’s Fan TV platform, enabling cable service providers to gain access to Rovi’s enhanced metadata and pave the way to future innovations that enhance the discovery experience. The newly developed Evolution Digital set-top box allows cable operators to deliver QAM linear channels and IP video services through a streamlined and integrated user interface.
Evolution Digital’s eBOX can be configured to support an all-IP platform, including live linear channels, IP Video on Demand programs, network DVR (nDVR) content and the leading OTT services. Finding content across these offerings has never been easier for consumers, as eGUIDE features universal search, 16:9 HD graphics and a simplified interactive grid guide to view traditional cable channels and IP video options.
“It is my pleasure to announce our newest integrated IP hybrid solution, eBOX with eGUIDE, powered by Rovi’s Fan TV platform,” said Brent Smith, president and chief technology officer. “Rovi is known for their strength in metadata that drives entertainment discovery, and this device and interactive guide offers consumers an unparalleled user experience. Additionally, the Fan TV platform offers flexible APIs so we are able to integrate quickly on eBOX with eGUIDE, and provide our customers a solution today that fortifies our strategy as a business as we continue to develop products and software that help cable providers migrate to all-IP.”
