Minerva Networks, a leading provider of software solutions for the delivery of television services to broadband connected devices, unveiled a complete suite of multiscreen clients under the YourTV brand. In conjunction with the latest release of the Company’s iTVFusion service management platform (Release 5.6), the new multiscreen clients enable operators to deliver a compelling and ubiquitous pay TV experience to their subscribers.
The YourTV clients will be available for Android touch devices through Google Play, as well as for iOS devices through Apple’s iTunes App store. Browser-based YourTV clients will also be available for PC’s and Mac’s. Pay TV operators deploying Minerva iTVFusion 5.6 and the new YourTV client suite will be able to support both companion screen applications as well as a full multiscreen playback experience without the overhead of developing, submitting, and maintaining custom applications across multiple mobile platforms. Subscribers will be able to control their set-top box, manage DVR recordings, view the EPG and VOD storefront, and, if enabled, watch live and on demand content through the YourTV clients.
Many operators are looking for a simple and cost effective solution to deliver a multiscreen experience to their subscribers,” said Eric Freund, Director of Marketing at Minerva. “We believe the YourTV clients, along with the latest version of our iTVFusion platform, provide best-of-breed features that will allow service providers to maintain a competitive advantage in the markets they serve.
In addition to the new off-the-shelf YourTV applications, Minerva will continue to support customization across its full line of Clients for operators wishing to deliver fully branded and localized applications.
