TiVo Corporation has linked two metadata deals with metadata supplier of cloud TV solutions Minerva Networks and Mexican cable operator Izzi Telecom. The multi-year agreement includes the deployment of TiVo’s Passport Guide in Televisa operator’s STBs.
TiVo will be the main metadata supplier for platform Minerva YourTV Now, a cloud TV platform for Pay TV subscribers. The deal allows to unify metadata across its Minerva 10 platform, which offers service management infrastructure for the delivery of pay TV services.
‘We are excited to expand our partnership with Minerva Networks and are honoured by the trust they have placed in us,” said Sarah Gaeta, Senior Vice President and General Manager Metadata TiVo. “We look forward to supporting Minerva with innovative entertainment enhancements that will be enjoyed for years to come by its current and future customers’., she added.
On the other hand, TiVo arranged a licence with Mexican Izzi Telecom to provide interactive programs guides and entertainment metadata, and to add metadata for TV and video with HD content and improved features. Guides will also be implemented for TiVo STBs in Mexico City and Monterrey.
‘TiVo’s technology platform is the best choice for our customers because it offers a whole solution:an HD user experience with advanced features plus high-quality and accurate entertainment metadata, which together creates an engaging experience for our subscribers to easily and quickly find the shows or movies they want to watch on TV’, said Guillermo Salcedo, corporate product director at Izzi.
