Evolution Digital rolled out a new version of its eBOX IP hybrid set-top with the eGUIDE interactive guide. Rovi’s Fan TV platform is reportedly powering the guide, which is said to “enable cable providers to gain access to Rovi’s enhanced metadata and pave the way to future innovations that enhance the discovery experience.” The STB reportedly allows cable operators to deliver QAM linear channels and IP video services through a streamlined and integrated user interface.
“Evolution Digital’s eBOX can be configured to support an all-IP platform, including live linear channels, IP video-on-demand programs, network DVR (nDVR) content and the leading OTT services,” the company says in a statement. “”Finding content across these offerings has never been easier for consumers, as eGUIDE features universal search, 16:9 HD graphics and a simplified interactive grid guide to view traditional cable channels and IP video options.”
