Bermuda CableVision launches TV everywhere

Michelle Clancy | 28-08-2013

Bermuda CableVision, the island's incumbent provider of digital cable TV and high speed Internet, is expanding its TV service to Android tablets and smartphones, iPhone and iPad. The service will be available in the home first – and outside the home in the future.

The operator has selected the Azuki Media Platform to support its TV everywhere rollout across its island-wide fibre-based network. The Azuki Media Platform will enable the carrier to deploy high definition (HD) and premium content channels with multiscreen electronic programming guide (EPG) and transactional video-on-demand (T-VOD).

"As the world of multiscreen is evolving and growing, we're proud to have been selected by Bermuda CableVision," said Cheng Wu, founder and CEO at Azuki Systems. "It's a testimony of Azuki's next-generation TV everywhere technology, which is enabling Bermuda CableVision to deploy a cost-effective multiscreen provisioning platform for dynamic delivery of advanced video services."

The platform enables linear live and VOD content ingestion, dynamically and automatically associated with appropriate metadata, entitlements and rights information; simplified workflow, which requires one content preparation for multiscreen devices, via Azuki's One-Pass TVE workflow; real-time enforcement of multiscreen entitlements and parental control, with the Azuki Entitlements Director; robust and normalised functionality across multiple platforms and networks, to ensure consistent quality of user experience and content protection with root-of-trust, with the Azuki Media Client; and real-time content consumption metrics across all screens, with the Azuki Analytics Report Generator.

"I am pleased to be working with Azuki Systems to bring exciting new services to subscribers, and position Bermuda CableVision as a leader in the TV everywhere market," said Terry Roberson, general manager at Bermuda CableVision. "By deploying the Azuki platform, Bermuda CableVision is able to take TV everywhere to the next level and offer the most compelling and engaging multi-screen viewing experience to our customers."
