Evolution Digital, the Colorado-based company focused on IP video transition platforms for small- and mid-tier providers, said it has secured deals with seven members of the National Cable Television Cooperative (NCTC).
Those operators -- Docomo Pacific, Antietam Communications, Frankfort Plant Board, Orbitel Communications, Easton Utilities, MTC Cable and Wyandotte Cable TV – will start their respective migrations using Evolution’s eVUE-TV platform in tandem with NCTC’s VU-IT! offering.
Tailored for smaller operators, VU-IT! features backoffice integration, OTT apps and the TiVo user interface. eVUE-TV enables these operators to deliver thousands of hours of the best IP Video on Demand programming, and is used as a back-office solution for integration with OTT apps and the TiVo user interface and functionalities.
eVUE-TV is Evolution’s managed IP video platform, which currently supports VOD, with linear channel, network DVR and TV Everywhere among the capabilities that are on deck. NCTC’s VU-IT! solution is currently compatible with Evolution’s IP/QAM hybrid “eBOX” and other third-party hardware, they said.
Evolution’s deployments stem from an agreement with the NCTC announced in July 2016.
Evolution said 14 operators are on board with eVUE-TV. Others include WOW!, Blue Stream, Vast Broadband, Click!, Westman Communications, Fidelity and Hiawatha/HTC.
