Radio: ActiveVideo's Jeff Miller on the Company's Work with Cablevision, Time Warner Cable, and More

Earlier this week (see the article published on, October 28th), New York-area MSO, Cablevision, announced the launch of iO TV Quick View, an interactive TV service consisting of three channels--devoted to children's, sports and news content respectively--each of which features a nine-channel multiscreen mosaic. The service--which is billed as providing comprehensive one-stop access to whole genres of popular programming--is powered by technology from ActiveVideo Networks (formerly ICTV), a San Jose, Calif.-based company which offers a platform that it bills as intelligently streaming both traditional and Web-based content to digital set-top boxes and Web-connected CE devices and as combining the personalized, dynamic socially connected experience of the Web with the quality, immediacy and remote-control navigation that end-users expect from television (note: the platform carries out its heavy-duty processing at the headend, allowing it to work with low-resource legacy set-top boxes that have been equipped with a small-footprint software client).

In this recorded episode of [itvt]'s talk radio show, "The TV of Tomorrow Show with Tracy Swedlow," ActiveVideo president and CEO, Jeff Miller, discusses the company's work with Cablevision, as well as its work with Time Warner Cable; explains the company's concept of "cloud TV"; shares usage trends that the company has observed from its deployments; previews some of the alliances, deals and projects the company expects to be announcing in the near future; and much more.
