Espial RDK Set-top Box Solutions & Espial G4 User Experience to Power
N-Next Generation of Set-top Boxes and wireless devices
OTTAWA, Oct. 16, 2013 /CNW/ - Espial, a leader in on-demand TV software
and solutions, today announced that a major Tier 1 North American Cable
operator has signed a multi-year, multi-million dollar contract
with Espial to provide the service provider's next generation user
experience and client solutions for set-top boxes, TVs, wireless and PC
devices. Espial will integrate and deliver Espial's RDK set-top box
client solution together with the Espial G4 User Experience, a complete
out-of-the-box HTML5 user experience for TV, Tablets and Smartphones.
"Espial's product portfolio is focused on helping operators launch new,
innovative services as they transition to IP-based networks" said
Jaison Dolvane, CEO, Espial. "This contract represents a significant
financial win for Espial and reinforces Espial's product leadership.
Traditional telecom competition along with new Internet entrants like
Netflix, Hulu and Amazon are challenging incumbent cable service
providers. This is accelerating cable's transition to IP as a platform
to allow them to effectively compete and rapidly innovate. Espial's
strong product focus in this market, our work with Comcast as an RDK
licensee and our continually increasing HTML5 leadership positions us
very well to capitalize on this lucrative market opportunity."
