Espial has announced a partnership with Inter Mountain Cable (IMC), a provider of high-speed internet, digital TV, telephone, and commercial services, to launch a variety of advanced TV services across IMC’s IPTV and cable networks.
Espial’s Elevate is a TVaaS video platform that allows operators to manage, deliver, and monetize compelling video experiences. The Elevate platform offers consumers a rich user interface with voice-based navigation, discovery, and viewing of traditional content and streaming services like Netflix and YouTube. Elevate provides operators with cloud tools for their operations, marketing, support, and engineering team – including analytics, promotions, segmentation, and diagnostics.
John Schmoldt, VP and Director of Operations, Inter Mountain Cable, said: “Using Espial’s Elevate platform will allow us to simplify our video business significantly. With one unified video platform, we will be able to offer IPTV, app-based TV, and cable services to our subscribers. The compelling services and continuous innovation that we will be able to offer our customers made selecting Espial’s Elevate platform the only choice for us.”
Matt James, Vice President North America Sales, Espial, said: “We are excited to have the opportunity to work with IMC to help enhance and enrich their customers’ entertainment experience. Operators such as IMC are facing more and more competition in the market, but with Elevate, they have a solution that combines the best of traditional TV and OTT video services into a seamless offer.”
