Four members of the National Cable Television Cooperative have selected Clearleap’s ClearPlay cloud-based streaming services to provide on-demand content via IP for their subscribers.

The new customers, announced at the NCTC WEC in Austin, Texas, are enTouch Systems, Greenlight Cable (owned by the city of Wilson, N.C.), ImOn Communications and Jackson Energy Authority. According to Clearleap, its software-as-a-service technology is deployed in more than 50 cable and content-provider systems, including half of the top 10 U.S. operators.

ClearPlay modules, which can be deployed individually or as a comprehensive solution, include business tools to expand content over high-speed data networks to connected TV devices, laptops, and tablets. Components include ClearPlay On Demand, Linear TV, Cross-Platform App Deployment, Universal Subscriber Authentication and Back Office Management. ClearPlay also integrates with popular billing systems.

How the new clients will use ClearPlay:
>> enTouch Systems Inc. (Houston) and its cable group, ETS Cablevision, says the ClearPlay streaming option complements its recent TiVo set-top deployment with scalable, economical on-demand content.
>> Greenlight is interested in offering its subscribers TiVo boxes, and ClearPlay will provide a turnkey, IP-based streaming service that can scale as more subscribers sign on.
>> ImOn Communications (Cedar Rapids, Iowa) plans to offer new on-demand services using ClearPlay streaming services to its subscribers who use Roku boxes.
>> Jackson Energy Authority (Jackson, Tenn.) will use ClearPlay to launch streaming on-demand services.
