We are pleased to announce that ContentWise and Minerva Networks are now commercial partners. We look forward to continue working ever more closely with our Minerva friends. Here’s the press release:
Las Vegas, NV, April 08, 2013 — Minerva Networks, a leading provider of software solutions for the delivery of television services over broadband networks, and ContentWise, a leader in cross-domain content discovery solutions, today announced a partner and global resale agreement. Minerva has integrated ContentWise, a recommendation engine for live and on demand content, with its iTVFusion service management platform, and will resell the combined solution worldwide. Service providers deploying Minerva’s award winning iTVFusion platform will be able to offer their subscribers a compelling and personalized content discovery experience powered by ContentWise.
“Pay TV operators will be able to reduce subscriber churn with a better user experience, and increase revenues with a higher purchase rate,” said Jean-Georges Fritsch, EVP of Products for Minerva. “Subscribers will enjoy access to the ContentWise platform from all the connected devices supported by iTVFusion.”
ContentWise, which specializes in personalized recommendations that increase content consumption and demand, will leverage Minerva’s existing analytics capabilities to offer content recommendations based on user consumption of linear and on demand content across set-top boxes, PCs, tablets, and smartphones. The agreement simplifies the licensing process and costs traditionally associated with third-party applications.
“I believe that adding out-of-the-box personalization and recommendation features to Minerva’s best-of-breed platform will set a new standard for user engagement in the pay TV market,” said Paolo Bozzola, CEO of ContentWise.
