ENABLING A BETTER TELEVISION EXPERIENCE
In the early 1990s, consumers began to experience the first digital TV technology evolution when it became possible to transmit significantly more television channels while utilizing the same amount of bandwidth as analog TV. As a result, new service offerings emerged such as direct broadcast satellite TV and digital cable TV, and the channel offerings available to consumers grew from a few channels to hundreds of channels. In the early 2000s, Telcos, attempting to defend against voice, data and video service bundles offered by cable operators, broadened their suite of services to include Digital Pay-TV delivered over their broadband networks (IPTV).
In the late 2000s, the second wave of digital TV technology evolution began, fueled by new connected devices and increased access to broadband Internet through wireless and wireline networks. It is now possible for service providers to deliver video content to a broad array of devices over mobile and broadband networks anytime and anywhere (TV-over-IP).
Minerva's goal is to enable service providers to offer an engaging television experience to their subscribers, on any device, across any network, at any time. Every day hundreds of operators around the world deliver compelling television services powered by our platforms. By offering consumers a consistent user experience across multiple content sources, networks, applications and devices, service providers can increase market penetration, grow revenues, and build customer loyalty.
