MobiTV, a provider of managed mobile TV and video services, announced today that it is introducing a TV Everywhere solution for cable, satellite and IPTV service providers, leveraging the company’s expertise in providing video delivery solutions for mobile devices, personal computers and other Internet-enabled consumer electronics. Based on MobiTV’s existing cloud-based video distribution platform, TV service providers can now offer their subscribers live and on-demand programming for viewing inside and outside the home on personal computers, tablets and a broad range of mobile devices.
The MobiTV TV Everywhere solution is easily adaptable for seamless integration with existing TV infrastructure and back-end systems. Customers looking to extend their content to other platforms may leverage MobiTV’s existing ingestion and encoding efforts. As an end-to-end managed service that leverages MobiTV’s cloud-based video distribution platform, the TV Everywhere solution can help TV service providers reduce time to market and costs associated with deployment and operations. Additionally, the service will be supported 24×7 by the experienced team in the MobiTV network operations center.
“TV service providers need a cost-effective solution to meet consumer demand for seamless authenticated access to content anytime, anywhere and on any device,” said MobiTV Co-Founder and President Paul Scanlan. “MobiTV built its technology with a focus on delivering live television optimized for mobile devices. By pre-packaging all the necessary components – content ingestion, technology platform, device integration and DRM support – we’ve taken what’s typically a very complex and expensive project for a TV operator and made it simple, affordable, and easy to launch.”
The MobiTV TV Everywhere solution, designed for TV service providers, is immediately deployable across a broad range of devices both inside and outside the home.
