"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"This technology enhances platform and network scalability, while delivering a balanced architecture on which cloud and client interactions can be optimized."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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'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."
