TiVo has launched a next-generation platform that it claims will provide a “future-proof solution” for operators adapting to a changing market.
TiVo’s Next-Gen Platform is supported by a cloud-based, unified backend and can be deployed across QAM, hybrid and IPTV deployments – offering a consistent user experience for operators looking to transition to IPTV while maintaining QAM support.
Providers can use the platform to deliver content to managed set-top-boxes such as Linux and Android TV as well as unmanaged devices such as Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and to mobile and the web.
Customers, meanwhile, get an entertainment experience that includes ‘hyper-personalisation’, recommendations and voice control – as well as integrated content across linear, over-the-top, on-demand and DVR platforms for multiscreen viewing.
“Consumers face a fragmented, ever-changing media landscape as new services, content sources and devices continue to proliferate,” said Michael Hawkey, senior vice president and general manager, user experience, TiVo.
“Media companies are compelled to evolve. TiVo’s Next-Gen Platform is specifically designed to meet the consumer’s insatiable desire for entertainment while enabling operators to maintain market share and remain relevant amid growing competition.”
