FusionTV, a new managed service from Entone, provides telcos with the ability to offer "over the top" (OTT) content blended with linear HDTV programming.

According to the company, FusionTV is a hybrid TV service that combines linear HDTV programming and OTT media into a single, unified user experience. With FusionTV, linear HDTV is delivered by such traditional programming sources as cable, IPTV or OTA broadcasts.  Live HDTV programming is complemented with such online media services as video on demand (VOD), music streaming, photo sharing, social media, and other popular Web content and services.

With FusionTV, telcos can now bundle an array of video services with their broadband Internet service without the cost of deploying a full-scale IPTV system. The IPTV Edition of FusionTV is based on Entone’s recently announced WebVOD solution that allows IPTV operators to offer Web-based VOD services with a software download to Entone’s media hubs. The Broadband TV Edition creates a completely new service model for telcos that have not deployed IPTV, either entirely or in certain markets.

With FusionTV, subscribers receive:

  • High-speed Internet
  • Live HDTV programming
  • Full-featured digital video recorder (DVR) and electronic program guide (EPG)
  • Web media services (VOD, photo sharing, music streaming, etc.)
  • Personal media sharing within a home network
  • Place shifting of content throughout the home or on-the-go

 FusionTV currently is being deployed and trialed by numerous video service operators, but it s available now in all U.S. markets. Entone will be demonstrating FusionTV at the TelcoTV show in Las Vegas, set for Nov. 10 -11.
