launches full support of automated Electronic Program Guide 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.
