Buckeye CableSystem, a small cable operator based in Toledo, Ohio, is enhancing its "TV Everywhere" offerings to deliver linear and on-demand video to smartphones, tablets and other IP-connected devices using the multiscreen-video management product from Azuki Systems.

Buckeye can deliver programming from any source, including the Buckeye CableSystem Sports Network (BCSN) and other linear broadcasts, as well as present a custom user interface with social interactivity, enhanced content discovery, touch-screen remote controls and online bill payment.

The operator plans to support Android tablets and smartphones, Apple iPhone and iPad devices, IP set-top-boxes and gaming consoles with the Azuki Media Platform.

"As a customer-service leader in the cable and broadband sectors, we are always on the lookout for leading-edge technology that enhances our branding and improves our customers' experience and perceived value," Buckeye CTO Joe Jensen said in a statement. "Azuki delivers game-changing innovation that can help us deliver on the promise of TV Everywhere with its unique ability to manage and optimize OTT video delivery to multi[ple] screens, without impacting our existing video operations."
