TiVo’s Cubiware extends partnership with Quadrille

Cubiware graphicPoland-based TiVo subsidiary, Cubiware, has extended its extended partnership with French digital TV software and services company, Quadrille.

Through the deal, Cubiware will integrate its middleware solutions with Quadrille’s Push VOD technology, making it available on a range of low cost set-top box platforms aimed at pay TV operators in emerging markets.

Quadrille’s Push VOD solution allows catalogues of videos to be stored locally on set-top boxes, providing access to content without broadband connection.

CubiTV’s interface, meanwhile, is designed to make it easy for subscribers to navigate advanced TV functionality and includes a graphics-rendering engine for fast menus and program guides with animations, transitions, and effects  – but is designed to run on low-power, small footprint DTV and IPTV processors.

“Since 2012, Quadrille has been a great partner to Cubiware, using our middleware to expand across Europe, Africa and Middle East. This collaboration provides broadcasters the choice to introduce innovative on-demand offering also for territories with weak broadband penetration,” said Cubiware co-founder, Jakub Gorski.

Quadrille CEO, Xavier Battas, said: “Our partnership with Cubiware has been transformative to our business. The integrated CubiTV-Push VOD technology allows broadcasters to deploy push video services while saving on transmission costs, creating an attractive option across the board.”
