Evolution Digital’s eMERGE™ user interface has been honored as a Finalist in Light Reading’s Leading Lights Awards 2019 in the ‘Most Innovative Cable/Video Product or Service’ category. That shortlist of awardees can be viewed here.
Evolution Digital’s eMERGE, announced in October 2018, is a new app-based user experience that delivers the operator’s full IP programming (eVUE-TV® IP linear, VOD, pay-per-view, network DVR, catch-up and start-over content) aggregated with high-value third-party streaming services onto a sleek, graphic-rich platform that’s operator-customizable across multi-screen connected devices including eSTREAM 4K™, powered by Android TV™.
Light Reading’s annual Leading Lights celebrates innovation, hard work and business success of the communications industry’s leading companies, teams and individuals. The ‘Most Innovative Cable/Video Product or Service’ category acknowledges the company that has developed a potentially market-leading product, application or strategy that has enabled the launch, deployment or creation of innovative, profitable cable, video, TV or multimedia services during the past year.
“The Finalists in this year’s Light Reading Leading Lights show a high degree of innovation combined with a key focus on the consumer experience as video continues to evolve,” said Cash Hagen, chief operating officer. “Our eMERGE offering seeks a novel way to deliver a fully-integrated software client by delivering to operators a one-of-a-kind seamless UI, enabling providers to win back customers and outperform competition. We are honored to be recognized for two of our leading products in back-to-back Leading Lights Awards (2018 and 2019).”
“We received an unusually large number of very strong entries in the most innovative cable/video product or service category this year,” said Alan Breznick, cable/video practice leader of Light Reading. “The fact that Evolution’s eMERGE user interface made it to our short list is a real tribute to the pioneering work that the company has done here.”
