Gemstar-TV Guide is to launch its so-called Interactive Programme Guide (IPG) in the Spanish market. It follows an agreement with local broadcaster Veo Television.
Gemstar’s IPG technology has already been incorporated into digital video recorders and television sets manufactured by Panasonic, Philips, Sony, Pioneer, JVC and Sharp for the Spanish market.
Lydie Levy, chief operating officer for Gemstar-TV Guide’s consumer electronics business congratulated Veo on its work in developing the product in Spain. “This announcement reinforces our commitment to be at the forefront of guidance technology and services as Europe transitions to a digital future,” she said.
The product is already available in the UK through an agreement with YooMedia.
