Rovi And SeaChange To Demonstrate Combined Cloud Guide And RDK Gateway To Simplify Operators' Access To Next Generation Services

SANTA CLARA, Calif. and ACTON, Mass., June 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- (The Cable Show 2013) - This week at The Cable Show, Rovi Corporation (Nasdaq:ROVI) and SeaChange International (Nasdaq:SEAC) are  demonstrating an integrated guide and gateway built to the industry standard reference design kit (RDK) specification. By aligning Rovi TotalGuide™ with the SeaChange Nucleus™ Soft Box, the companies are demonstrating a solution that incorporates an HTML guide rendered by a WebKit browser that could be rapidly deployed in RDK-based gateways and set-top boxes, independent of the set-top hardware manufacturer. 

RDK is an open-source, standardized specification set to promote the compatibility of different technology components as they are being developed for next-generation cable and IP-enabled gateways and set-tops. The standard has been adopted by major cable operators to shorten the development and go-to-market cycle for cable equipment.

"At Rovi, we're committed to making it as easy as possible for customers to roll out new products to the market," said Thierry Lehartel, VP of product management for guides at Rovi. "At The Cable Show, we are demonstrating the flexibility of TotalGuide to adopt innovative new industry standards and work with applications such as SeaChange's Nucleus Soft Box to enable the deployment of advanced new applications and experiences into the home." 

"Operators will thrive on a flexible software platform that's totally unconstrained by hardware decisions," said Shiva Patibanda, General Manager, In-Home Business, SeaChange. "SeaChange's Nucleus software for media gateways and IP clients utilizes the standardization around RDK while innovating in ways that allow operators to radically enhance subscriber experiences throughout the home. By aligning with Rovi's TotalGuide, we can enable operators to deliver integrated home media experiences."

The demonstration of Rovi's TotalGuide and SeaChange's Nucleus products together will show a software solution that could deliver:
  • an advanced user experience that enables subscribers to quickly see what's on their favorite channels; search; and browse by program, celebrities, cast and credits across video service offerings – from linear and on-demand to DVR;
  • a scalable multi-screen solution that enables whole home and in-home streaming to mobile devices;
  • a gateway that lets operators' branded experiences reach every device at home with media sharing, DVR and other capabilities; and
  • the ability for operators to quickly launch new subscriber services from the open application marketplace.

SeaChange's Nucleus Soft Box is an open gateway and application framework supporting a variety of apps, content services and guides, and putting operators' branded experiences on every video device at home.  The flexible software works with a number of device types and configurations, including multi-tuner hybrid gateways supporting QAM and IP-delivered video, lightweight IP clients, and local- or cloud-based operations for DVR and search and recommendation services.
