Minerva Networks, a provider of open platforms for the delivery of TV services to IP connected devices, has unveiled iTVManager 4.0. The company’s fourth generation platform features a Widgets Engine, which enables blended Internet and TV services, whole-home digital video recorder (DVR) functionality, new user interfaces as well as advanced redundancy features.

The new Widget Engine is capable of supporting RSS news feeds, stocks, weather and traffic information, visual voice mail and caller ID. The whole-home DVR functionality enables all of the set-top boxes within the home to access media stored in a single shared PVR unit. The new user interfaces are selectable by the subscriber and take advantage of the processing power of next generation set-top boxes to deliver animation capabilities.

The iTVManager 4.0 back-office application programming interfaces (APIs) have been expanded to facilitate the integration with hospitality entertainment systems so that operators can offer targeted services to hotels and multi-dwelling communities.
