Evolution Digital today announces the deployment of software upgrades for its eVUE-TV IP video service experience with upgraded features and functionalities for both operators and their customers across the U.S.
Evolution Digital’s acclaimed eVUE-TV, now deployed by operators nationwide, allows cable and telecommunications operators to cost-effectively add IP Video on Demand, IP Linear, Pay-Per-View and network DVR to their systems.
Upgraded User Interface Features Now Available
eVUE-TV now features enhanced trick play, allowing customers to rewind and fast-forward at customized speeds. The upgraded functionality also features a visual representation of where the customer is seeking in the video stream by displaying a screen capture of the scene, providing customers ease-of-use when fast-forwarding or rewinding through any given show, movie or event.
The upgraded experience also includes improved categorization of content. Operators are able to manage programming into folders as they see fit, optimizing search and navigation for customers. For adult content, strengthened filtering automatically moves adult selections into correct folders accessible via password-protected parental controls. Further managed categorization features a new functionality that automatically displays an HD title, if available, while removing the SD program to avoid duplication, as well as offer the best available definition of content.
“These upgraded features now available on our eVUE-TV platform offer consumers an exceptional viewing experience,” said Brent Smith, president and chief technology officer. “eVUE-TV provides our operators new opportunities to capture audiences who want to enjoy the best television functionalities available in the industry. In the competitive cable market, Evolution Digital strives to provide operators the tools that consumers want in a TV viewing experience to help retain and attract subscribers.”
