Espial launches Elevate Cloud SaaS Platform in Europe at IBC 2017

Canadian video software firm Espial is announcing European availability of its Elevate cloud-based software as a service (SaaS) video platform available at IBC2017.

Already deployed with 40 North American customers, Espial will showcase Elevate to IPTV, cable, and OTT operators as a multi-tenant cloud platform with a focus on the overall video experience. The company claims it is designed to attract and retain subscribers as well as drive new revenue streams.

"To stay ahead of the competition, pay TV operators need to launch video services with rapid scale and speed. It's also important to achieve the benefits of scale on a platform shared by dozens of operators,” said Michael McCluskey, vice president of product management at Espial.

Elevate is available as a turnkey, cloud-hosted video solution to speed up time to market. It incorporates analytics along with a segmentation engine that allows operators to test, deliver, and promote offerings to a single user, group, or the entire customer base. It supports a range of devices, including set-top boxes, mobiles, tablets and Roku.

At IBC 2017, Espial will also demonstrate some of the latest additions to the platform including voice control and Android TV support. With voice control, end users can quickly change channels, search the guide, review the VOD catalog and play DVR recordings, as well as pause, rewind, or forward programming.

Espial will be at IBC 2017 in Amsterdam at stand 1.F89.
