Minerva tops 200 IPTV deployments worldwide

Middleware vendor Minerva Networks has passed the 200-deployment milestone with its iTVManager product helping several new operators launch IPTV products and position themselves for triple-play offerings. The company said it's scored recent wins with Craw-Kan Telephone Cooperative and Swiftel Communications in North America, ICE in Costa Rica, PCCTV in Cambodia, and Palm Hills Development in the Middle East.

Minerva iTVManager is a software platform for the delivery and management of television services including high-definition television (HDTV), set-top box and network-based personal video recording (PVR and nPVR), whole-home digital video recording (WHDVR), restart TV, pause-live TV (PLTV), video-on-demand (VOD), Widgets, music, games, and communications applications.

"We needed a platform that would allow us to offer advanced television services to our existing customers and to attract new subscribers," said Craig Wilbert, General Manager of Craw-Kan Telephone Cooperative. "After thorough evaluation, we concluded that Minerva's iTVManager provided all the key features we were looking for, along with a compelling roadmap that will allow us to attract customers from our competitors."
