Last July, Centennial, Colorado-based Evolution signed a deal with NCTC to distribute eVue-TV as a technology option for members who use the NCTC’s VU-IT! platform, which includes back-office integration, OTT apps and TiVo’s user interface. 

Operators can integrate eVue-TV to deliver IP video to customers. Evolution plans to add capabilities such as the IP delivery of linear channels, network DVR and TV Everywhere functionality. 

“We are pleased to add these seven NCTC operators to the rapidly growing list of providers deploying eVUE-TV,” said Marc Cohen, executive VP of sales for Evolution Digital, in a statement. “eVUE-TV is a best of breed solution that empowers operators to cost-effectively integrate a more complete line-up of IP video content while helping the operator begin the transition to full IP distribution. eVUE-TV not only delivers the programming that consumers want, but also enables a more compelling viewing experience with enhanced functionalities and features.”
