Michelle Clancy | 05-09-2013

Entone is joining forces with TiVo to produce an integrated solution for IPTV operators that combines Entone's hybrid devices with the TiVo user interface, including universal search and recommendations, online music, cloud-based video-on-demand and network DVR service.

"TiVo not only pioneered the DVR but is also leading the way with cloud TV services such as networked DVR and Web media applications," said Steve McKay, CEO of Entone. "This partnership continues Entone's focus on making the best possible entertainment experience available to our operator customers and their subscribers."
The combined solution initially targets IPTV operators that want to offer TiVo's universal search, personalised recommendation engine and assembly of Web media applications. The underlying Entone hardware provides numerous tuner configurations for hybrid TV and a variety of in-home video distribution technologies and options.
"With extensive global IPTV deployments, Entone is the perfect partner for TiVo to build on our momentum with service providers worldwide," said Joseph Weber, vice president of technology strategy at TiVo. "We encourage attendees at the IBC show in Amsterdam to come by and see the solution in action."
