MOUNT LAUREL, NJ--(Marketwire -06/11/12)- TelVue® Corporation (TEVE), the innovation leader in Television and Internet Broadcasting for communities, cable operators, and media companies, today launched a new tool for Cable and Telco operators to broaden the range of their content by aggregating programming via the Internet for video-on-demand (VOD) services.
The TelVue Connect Broadcast Content Management System has been extended to support descriptive information about programming, known as metadata, in the industry-specific CableLabs® Asset Distribution Interface (ADI) standard. This metadata can be captured and passed to the operator's VOD system to populate the on-demand program guide.
The new metadata feature allows Cable and Telco operators to easily aggregate content from multiple contributors for their on-demand offerings. It also gives contributors a browser-based drag-and-drop solution for program submission from anywhere. TelVue Connect automatically converts the submitted programming to the format required by Cable/Telco VOD services, supporting both traditional and IP-based systems.
"We heard from operators that they want access to new local content that the community likes, and we heard from both producers and operators that it really should be a lot easier to get programming from the community to the most important programming outlets in the home. We think both sides now have what they needed," said Jesse Lerman, President and CEO of TelVue.
TelVue Connect includes a moderation and approval feature that sends e-mail notifications as soon as new programming is submitted. The operator, from any browser or mobile device, can preview the content and metadata information, and then accept or reject it for inclusion on their VOD platform.
TelVue Connect saves video operators time and money aggregating new locally relevant and sought-after content including sports, classifieds, and community media, that have proven useful in attracting and retaining subscribers and generating revenue.
