MOUNT LAUREL, NJ--(Marketwire -06/19/12)- TelVue® Corporation (TEVE), the innovation leader in Television and Internet Broadcasting for communities, cable operators, and media companies, today launches full support of automated Electronic Program Guide (EPG) data publishing and transfers between the TelVue Princeton® and HyperCaster™ line of digital broadcast servers and the Minerva iTVFusion 5.3 TVoIP platform.
The automation of EPG data publishing and transfers gives local origination and leased access channels timely and updated entries in the program guide, making it easier to promote local programming and make it more accessible to DVR recording. Lack of programming information has been a common obstacle to attracting viewers to local content.
The TelVue automated EPG data publishing and transfer feature eliminates the need to enter program guide data manually. Operators can also import this EPG data directly to the Minerva platform without incurring any additional fees, such as custom data charges, from their primary EPG data provider.
"TelVue continues to empower local and hyperlocal programming by creating ways for operators to build value and earn revenue. By integrating and automating the EPG data transfer process with key industry suppliers, TelVue is taking big steps to maximize the marketing value of local programming for our customers," says TelVue CEO Jesse Lerman.
