and Avail Media
announce the signing of a sales agreement and strategic partnership. According to the terms of the deal, Avail Media will resell Espial's Evo IPTV Service Platform to small and mid-sized operators in the North American market. The partners also intend to jointly develop and share revenues for a range of new and differentiating IPTV applications that will leverage the strengths of their respective technologies. In addition, Avail Media revealed that nine North American service provider customers have already selected Espial's Evo IPTV Service Platform as their middleware, pre-integrated with Avail Media's managed video content services.
Through the partnership, Espial and Avail Media bring to market an integrated, turnkey IPTV solution. This includes a large transport rights library of more than 220 channels from the major national programmers including ESPN, ABC, Disney, MTV Networks, Fox Networks, and many others. This premium content is delivered over a proven and fully integrated end-to-end infrastructure which is powered by the Espial Evo IPTV Service Platform.
Espial's flagship Evo IPTV Service Platform, which includes the carrier-grade Evo Server, fast and intuitive Evo Client middleware, standards-based and extensible Evo Future-Proof Framework, and various applications including Evo EPG, Evo VOD, Evo Browser, and Evo DVR, was designed as a better performing, more modular, scalable, and cost-effective alternative to other more monolithic solutions on the market today.
