Evolution Digital has launched eVUE-TV, which combines streaming video-on-demand (VOD) content with live cable television offerings.
Following Evolution Digital’s acquisition of i-Velozity, the rebranded eVUE-TV provides cable operators a wide selection of IP VOD content including new-release movies, leading cable network programmes and shows from premium networks like HBO and Showtime across all devices in the home, such as televisions, streaming devices, mobile, tablets and PCs.
“Evolution Digital is pioneering technology in the cable industry to fit the needs of the consumer by providing cable operators cost-effective solutions to increase revenue and stabilize retention,” said Brent Smith, president and CTO, Evolution Digital. “With eVUE-TV, cable providers can now combine the most popular Video on Demand titles with their live TV offerings onto one seamless and easy-to-use platform while avoiding costly infrastructure upgrades.”
The eVUE-TV platform delivers content from Evolution Digital’s central content distribution hub in Chicago or through a distributed platform inside the cable operator’s content delivery network. It becomes contextually aware of viewing preferences by examining viewers’ viewing habits and, with that information, eVUE curates recommended content for viewers, further driving VOD and PPV purchases. In the coming weeks, eVUE-TV will launch a new user interface across devices for an enhanced navigation.
