Espial Evo IPTV Middleware Reaches 1 Million Subscribers

By Spencer D. Chin, TMCnet Web Editor

IPTV middleware provider Espial (News - Alert) (News - Alert) announced at the IPTV (News - Alert) World Forum in London that it has shipped over 1 million units of its Evo IPTV service platform, as the adoption of Internet broadcast TV continues to grow.
Espial’s Evo Server has become a key part of the company’s growth in the IPTV (News - Alert) market. A carrier-grade product, Evo uses a scaleable, modular architecture that relies on data-driven rather than C-code algorithms, an approach the company claims provides faster performance.
The middleware system also uses an open architecture; an approach Espial believes circumvents the systems integration issues of more proprietary approaches. Already, Evo has been ported to over 20 different set-top box platforms.
Data-driven Evo applications include Evo EPG, Evo VOD, Evo DVR, Evo Browswer, and Evo BML.
"We are very proud of the one million IPTV subscriber milestone for our Evo IPTV middleware and applications," said Jaison Dolvane, Espial's founder, president, and CEO, in a statement. "Working together with our ecosystem and channel partners, we have created integrated carrier-grade IPTV solutions to help our customers worldwide successfully deploy differentiated video and converged services to their subscribers."
The million subscriber milestone caps off an active year for the company.
Over the past year, Espial was recognized by ABI Research (News - Alert) as the leading supplier of IPTV client middleware. It also listed with the Deloitte Fast 500 list of fastest growing companies.
The company also beefed up its management team, naming Dave Williamson as vice president of sales, Bob Daly as chief financial officer, and Brian Mahoney as vice president of marketing.
At the IPTV World Forum, Espial released a white paper that details steps users can take to lower the total cost of ownership for an IPTV solution.
