"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."
"Our new user interface, using technology provided by ActiveVideo, allows us to implement this guide on every set-top box. This makes every box and every television that’s connected within the Charter footprint state of the art. "
"Whatever we have done in the cloud now with this newest browser…is something we could never have done on the set-top box."
"ActiveVideo is a leader in set-top virtualization with its CloudTV platform that delivers web-based video services to virtually any device."
"This technology enhances platform and network scalability, while delivering a balanced architecture on which cloud and client interactions can be optimized."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"Hardware wise, it is less than a Euro per set-top box. You can be very efficient with this."
