TiVo renews multi-year patent license, signs global metadata deal with Minerva
TiVo Corporation announced that Minerva Networks, an IPTV industry pioneer and the leading supplier of service management infrastructure for the delivery of pay-TV services, has signed a multi-year intellectual property license renewal and new global metadata deal to use TiVo as the primary metadata provider for their new cloud service delivery platform, Minerva YourTV Now. In addition to the IP license agreement, the new global metadata deal enables Minerva to unify its metadata across the Minerva 10 platform and gain the benefits of using TiVo as their primary provider, rather than relying on multiple vendors. TiVo's metadata platform offers scale, dynamism and great core data so Minerva can deliver best-in-class experiences to its customers. Powered by unique and innovative technology, TiVo's metadata platform can quickly surface trending content to market the right content at the right time, improve search and recommendations, and support voice-powered results.
