Icareus Playout EPG solution is used to contribute, manage and distribute EPG data to operators globally.
Icareus EPG offers a scalable and versatile EPG platform for BVN to support multiple operators with different network environments. The EIT information can be automatically ingested from different sources such as live streams, XML and text files. Icareus’ distributor and system integrator partner Divitel has been responsible for the sales, integration and operating of Icareus Playout EPG for BVN.
Icareus’ Director Mr Mikko Karppinen comments: “BVN’s global footprint with different networks, time-zones and uplinks presented a challenge to which Icareus Playout fitted perfectly with its multinetwork capabilities. Timeshifting EPG data at BVN head-end enabled them to take full control of the contribution and to optimise the delivery to different parts of the world. We are naturally very proud to be selected by BVN, the best Dutch language television via satellite.”.
