RealPage Licenses Espial's Evo IPTV Service Platform

By Spencer D. Chin, TMCnet Web Editor

Espial (News - Alert) Group Inc., a provider of IPTV middleware and applications, has added another licensee, this one RealPage, a leading provider of on-demand software and services to the multifamily industry.
RealPage provides products and services to more than 20,000 apartment communities across the United States, representing over four million dwelling units. Its on-demand product lines include property management systems, sales and marketing systems, revenue management systems, and billing and payment services that help real estate professionals automate and enhance key business processes.

Espial's Evo IPTV (News - Alert) Service Platform, which includes the carrier-grade Evo Server, Evo Client middleware, the open Evo Future-Proof Framework TM , and various applications including Evo EPG and Evo VOD, was designed as a more open, modular, scalable and faster alternative to other more monolithic solutions on the market.

"We were very impressed with the Evo IPTV Service Platform and selected Espial after evaluating several other middleware choices," said Steve Winn, RealPage CEO, in a statement. "While we are not ready to announce any specific plans in the IPTV arena, we expect Espial to be a strategic partner moving forward."

RealPage selected Evo because of its ease of use for creating new applications and customizing Evo user interface SkinTones, the ability to manage multiple domains and channel line-ups separately from one service node, and overall system performance, scalability, and reliability.

Using a data-driven architecture and open applications platform, Evo Client combines service creation flexibility with a fast and compelling subscriber experience to attract and keep subscribers. Espial's Evo Server is a carrier-grade IPTV service node designed to optimize scalability, performance, ecosystem integration flexibility, and total cost of ownership.
