• "ActiveVideo will allow Charter to much more rapidly deploy its cloud-based graphical user interface to acquired subscribers in a cost-effective manner… In the process, it will neatly sidestep what otherwise would be the large merger integration expense of compatibility testing between user interfaces and pre-existing headend and customer premise equipment. The importance of this development cannot be overstated. It is only a small overstatement to say that this deal may not have been possible, at least at this price, without ActiveVideo's technology."Craig Moffett, Partner and Senior Analyst
  • "ActiveVideo allows us… to create experiences that are on-par with what marketers are doing on web and mobile, but still offer the trusted engagement and results that come from television."Rob Aksman, Chief Experience Officer
  • "We have over 300,000 set-top boxes deployed in our system. ActiveVideo gave us a cloud-based solution which allowed us to be able to deliver our social content navigator to all of these set-top boxes at once."Waldo Hooker, VP, Product and Strategy
  • "ActiveVideo's CloudTV technology helps enable our move of the UI into the cloud and is intended to help accelerate service innovation to our customers across a range of devices."Jim Blackley, EVP Engineering
  • "We are now able to achieve the same velocity as Internet based companies and that is because of the fact that we make use of Web-based services in our cloud-based solution."Eric Meijer, Product Manager
  • "ActiveVideo’s CloudTV platform renders the entire video experience in the cloud, helping us with delivery to existing set-top boxes or to future IP connected devices — whatever they are, wherever they are."Assaf Kaminer, CTO
  • "This technology enhances platform and network scalability, while delivering a balanced architecture on which cloud and client interactions can be optimized."Jim Blackley, EVP, Engineering & IT
  • "Cost savings, service flexibility and speed of deployment for new services are advantages when using the cloud. We think cloud technology has great potential to substitute, to a large extent, the hardware needed in the consumer home."Randolph Nikutta, Leader
  • "The recent launch of our cloud based user interface for set top boxes has resulted in a strong increase in the number of interactive receivers since its launch."Bernard Dijkhuizen, CEO
  • "The virtual, cloud-based set-top box decouples the user device from the development process, and thus from the life cycle of applications and services."Deutsche Telekom
  • "It allows all of our boxes that are already deployed regardless of their processing power and age to be capable of using the cloud-base infrastructure."Tom Rutledge, CEO
  • "Because CloudTV supports an HTML5, cloud-based UI, Ziggo is able to add functionality or change the UI literally overnight. Compared to normal change cycles of several months on STBs, this is a game-changing innovation."Eric Meijer, Senior Product Developer
  • "CloudTV… enables us to capitalize on HTML5 web standards for rapid content creation, it allows customers to expand the capabilities of existing STBs today; and it lays the foundation for advanced services on any screen in the near future."Toshifumi Shibuya, General Manager
  • "We're moving to a world where I don't think we'll have to buy CPE. I think we'll be able to make our product work on the devices people have."Tom Rutledge, CEO
