TiVo’s Next-Gen Platform, launched last week, is cloud-based, provides a unified backend to simplify operations and provide a consistent experience across the full customer base, and supports multiple deployment options including full IPTV and hybrid IPTV with QAM support. In terms of the user experience it includes hyper-personalisation, recommendations and voice control as well as the seamless integration of content from linear, OTT, on-demand and DVR sources. The platform can be used for content delivery to managed STBs including those running on Linux and Android TV and to multiscreen devices including Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV.
“TiVo Next-Gen Platform is a future-proof solution that enables operators to effectively adapt to a rapidly changing market and emerging customer segments with a complete set of unified products and versatile deployment options,” TiVo explains. “Powered by cloud services for rapid innovation, the platform delivers high feature velocity and gives providers the ability to anticipate and quickly address customer needs.” The company says the platform will help meet the insatiable appetite that consumers have for content and enable operators to maintain market share and remain relevant amid growing competition.”
