October 24, 2012 – Las Vegas, NV. – Minerva Networks, a leading provider of software solutions for the delivery of television services to connected devices, today unveiled the latest version (version 5.4) of its iTVFusion 5 video services platform. The enhanced platform enables operators to reach more devices with compelling television services. Subscribers can enjoy both linear and on-demand video services on their tablets or smart phones. They can also search for their favorite program on their connected devices and then seamlessly initiate the playback on the main television screen.
“Operators can enhance their pay TV offering with new multiscreen services increasing customer reach and retention, and improving the bottom line,” said Mauro Bonomi, CEO at Minerva Networks. “With our new platform, service providers can differentiate from over-the-top offers by delivering a compelling media experience that reaches beyond the television set.”
With Minerva iTVFusion 5.4 operators can deliver a complete line-up of programming whether linear, on demand or Internet-sourced through a unified user interface to a variety of iOS and Android based devices. Support for in-home wireless LAN connectivity enables quick interaction between the set-top box and the companion mobile devices. The enhanced platform supports a flexible deployment model (hosted, local or a mix of both).
“We are excited about the expanded multiscreen business opportunities offered with Minerva’s iTVFusion 5.4,” said Rob Koester, Director of Product Management at Consolidated Communications. “We can easily leverage our infrastructure investments to extend our reach to a broader set of subscribers and devices.”
