Espial Launches Android TVaaS Solution for Video Service Providers
The TVaaS solution provides customers with an Android TV Leanback launcher that comes with a set of video services such as LiveTV, Video on Demand, Time-Shift TV and Network DVR. Also included is voice navigation, personalized discovery, content posters, and universal search across OTT apps, all powered by Android TV.
The cloud control is intended for operator-specific branding and promotional campaigns, while data visualization and analytics show patterns and trends that drive data-based decisions.
Espial’s Elevate Cloud IPTV Platform has a fully managed software lifecycle for Android TV upgrades and integration with device partners. This allows users to quickly deploy innovations from the Google and Android TV network. There is also a 24/7/365 Network Operating Center (NOC) that helps mitigate risks and manages millions of active devices.
“We have tapped into the latest functionality from Google and have combined it with our operational depth and experience to offer a TV-as-a-Service solution for Android TV,” says Michael McCluskey, VP Product management of Espial. “By integrating Android TV into our Elevate cloud ecosystem, operators can bring Android TV services to market quickly and with low risk, while taking advantage of the latest innovations.”
