Minerva Networks has unveiled a cloud television service that enables operators to transition from their legacy set-top box-centric offerings to a personalised user experience across both managed and unmanaged devices.

roku 20 feb 2018Powered by the Minerva 10 platform, combined with other best-of-breed content recommendation, content security and video processing systems, the service supports voice control, start-over, catch-up TV and cloud DVR, and delivers a consistent viewing experience across both set-top boxes (STBs) and streaming media devices.

An optimised native client application enables Minerva to refresh the user experience on a range of legacy STBs, allowing, said the company, operators to offer a next-generation television experience without disrupting subscribers and while preserving revenue streams from their existing consumer premise equipment.

The Minerva Cloud TV service supports a variety of streaming media and mobile devices, including Apple TV, Roku TV, Amazon Fire TV and Android TV, as well as iOS and Android tablets and smartphones.

“We are delighted to be able to offer our existing customers as well as new prospects the most efficient and cost-effective solution to upgrade their legacy video offerings,” said Matt Cuson, vice president of marketing at Minerva Networks. “The hosted and managed service we are unveiling today is ideally suited for telco and cable operators eager to transition to next-generation television services while minimising capital expenses, support costs and revenue losses from existing infrastructure.”
