TMS, the international leader in entertainment navigation, and aioTV, a global provider of OTT middleware to cable operators and other video service providers, today announced that TMS’ world-class On Entertainment metadata will enable advanced search and discovery of aggregated live TV, VOD and online video content in the multi-screen UIs aioTV creates for domestic and international customers.
aioTV will use the full range of TMS’ On Entertainment metadata for Europe and Latin America. Discoverability of live TV, VOD and online video content within aioTV UIs will be enabled by industry-standard TMS Unique IDs which synchronize entertainment assets across multiple datasets.
aioTV will demonstrate its OTT video platform featuring TMS’ On Entertainment data at the National Cable Television Cooperative’s Winter Educational Conference taking place on February 17 and 18 in Tampa, FL. Through this event and The Independent Show in July, the NCTC seeks to maximize opportunities that ensure the profitability, competitive stature and long-term sustainability of its mid-sized cable operator member companies.
The mission of aioTV is to help cable operators like those belonging to the NCTC deliver on their OTT video strategies,” says Mike Earle, CEO of aioTV. “Advanced search and discovery of content is a critical component and the use of industry-leading TMS data enables us to offer our global customers this must-have functionality.”
