Zodiac Interactive and ActiveVideo have partnered on a joint solution that they claim will enable pay-TV operators of all sizes to provide next-generation user experiences and new premium services on any installed STB.

The proposed solution combines the cloud virtualization capabilities of the ActiveVideo CloudTV platform with Zodiac’s PowerUp Stack software and PowerUp AMS cloud platform. It is claimed that this will enable a rapid time-to-market for new features that can attract and retain subscribers and generate additional revenues. The initial deployment will be by Cable Bahamas in the second quarter of 2108. Cable Bahamas currently delivers video services to approximately 250,000 STBs.

When deployed, the solution should allow customers to experience a Personal Video Mosaic guide that displays live content from multiple channels, and will offer customers a unified experience across all devices and the ability to record and view content from anywhere.
