Pay TV operator Cable Bahamas agreed with the technology company ActiveVideo to renew its digital Pay TV service, where the decoder functions will be virtualized in the cloud. Thus, it will launch a new user interface that will make it possible to improve navigation across live and on demand content through their TV set-top-box.
“The ActiveVideo platform allows Cable Bahamas to extend next generation TV experience, already available as part of the company’s mobile video service, to its entire footprint of set-top-boxes,” explained Chief Revenue Officer of Minerva Networks, Todd Clayton (Minerva is also a provider of Cable Bahamas in the Pay TV service).
In this way, the functions of the TV Everywhere service called REV GO Play offered by the Bahamian operator will now also be in the decoder. Moreover, as ActiveVideo reported in the press release, the new service that will be put into operation will also be called REV GO Play. The TV Everywhere service had been launched by Cable Bahamas at the end of 2017 with Anevia Solutions and was only available in app format for mobile devices.
“Thanks to this platform, no longer does the device represent a roadblock to an enhanced guide and premium services,” told CEO of ActiveVideo, Jeff Miller. The technology company has its headquarters in San Jose, United States, and is owned by CommScope and Charter Communications.
