Ligos rolls out new middleware for MediaRig Mosaic
Ligos has updated its MediaRig Mosaic system with new middleware features to enable video-rich navigation with Interactive Program Guides (IPGs), such as those in use by Comcast cable and TV Guide’s i-Guide.
MediaRig Mosaic is intended for cable, IPTV and DBS operators, as well as middleware vendors. The product creates an interactive guide channel that displays multiple thumbnails of high-quality live video on a single TV screen.
Multi-Service Operators (MSOs) can group similar content together and create audience-specific portals for news, sports, family, movie and local content. MediaRig Mosaic also can be used to add advertising, service promotions and other interactive elements to the presentation.Viewers at home use their remote to highlight and navigate individual video tiles and hear the accompanying audio, and can navigate directly to a channel that captures their interest. The company will show the new middleware at NAB2007.For more information, visit:
