Evolution Digital Signs TiVo Certified Guide Renewal for eGUIDE

Evolution Digital has signed a certified guide renewal agreement with TiVo to deploy eGUIDE, a newly-designed interactive program guide (IPG). eGUIDE, powered by TiVo metadata, will feature rich graphics and a navigation scheme designed similarly to TiVo’s current i-Guide. The new solution provides cable operators in the United States and Canada with an IP-capable alternative to easily migrate legacy set-top boxes using i-Guide.

eGUIDE is available on Evolution Digital’s IP Hybrid eBOX, which can be configured to support all-IP video including live linear channels, IP video on demand, network DVR and catch-up TV. eGUIDE features a 16:9 HD format, rich graphics as well as navigational features similar to iGuide. eGUIDE is enabled by TiVo’s enhanced metadata services, which helps users easily find their favorite TV shows and movies, as well as discover new content across various channels.

“Evolution Digital joined forces with TiVo to further our mission of offering low-cost solutions for cable operators seeking to transition to IP video distribution,” said Brent Smith, president and chief technology officer at Evolution Digital. “With eGUIDE, operators can easily upgrade customers with legacy set-top boxes and begin offering advanced IP video features, like Video on Demand, while minimizing user confusion by providing a familiar navigation scheme and remote control. It is a win-win for operators and for consumers.”

The initial version of eGUIDE includes access to Evolution Digital’s eVUE-TV IP video platform. eGUIDE can also support targeted, interactive advertising capabilities to enable higher ad revenue.

“TiVo’s long-standing collaboration with Evolution Digital has brought solutions to market that span an ever-evolving entertainment landscape with the purpose of connecting users to their favorite content,” said Michael Hawkey, senior vice president and general manager at TiVo. “Evolution Digital’s eGUIDE complements TiVo’s line up of hybrid and full IPTV solutions, which can be customized with advanced features, like support for over-the-top services, to the broad spectrum of our customers’ entertainment discovery needs.”
