ETI announces support for TiVo next gen platform
February 2, 2019
ETI Software Solutions is proud to announce support for TiVo’s Next-Gen Platform, enabling operators to leverage their current infrastructure while seamlessly integrating IP video streaming and OTT content from TiVo’s cloud-based, multi-screen platform. The ETI-TiVo solution benefits both subscribers and providers by providing an enhanced user experience with features like personalised voice control, mobile device support and a modern user interface. Many features can be supported across linear and OTT platforms, giving providers a way to drive customer interaction and engagement and therefore reduce churn.
“ETI’s role is to protect back-end systems from deployment chaos and make sure subscribers have no disruption of service as a result,” said Greg Gross, Senior Product Director, ETI Software. “By teaming up with TiVo, we are able to bring the innovative features required by the Next Gen product to our operators.”
Already deployed at a U.S. cable company, the decision to integrate is part of ETI’s overall video strategy, commented Frank Gine, CEO of ETI Software. “Consumers are demanding video in a variety of models, putting pressure on operators to provide innovative solutions such as TiVo,”he said. “ETI and TiVo reduce cost, lower risk and make it easier for operators to leverage their existing infrastructure while converting to the next generation of video technology.”
