Verizon FiOS-TV uses SeaChange technology
SeaChange’s IP Video System automates the entire FiOS TV on-demand service from content intake right down to set-top applications.
FiOS-TV, Verizon’s IP-based video-on-demand service, is using the SeaChange IP Video System to support video-on-demand, interactive advertising, games-on-demand and other new applications.
SeaChange’s IP Video System automates the entire FiOS TV on-demand service from content intake right down to set-top applications. In Verizon deployments, the SeaChange system works in conjunction with advanced Motorola set-top boxes in a combined broadcast and IP system.
Featuring more than 330 channels and thousands of hours of on-demand movies and other programming, FiOS TV is available to Verizon customers in parts of the Dallas-Fort Worth, TX, area; Herndon, VA; and Temple Terrace, FL. It will launch soon in other states where Verizon is building its fiber-to-the-premises network.
FiOS TV currently offers more than 20 channels of high-definition programming and will offer more as it becomes available. The all-fiber network also supports a high-speed Internet service with current download speeds of up to 30Mb/s, and a high-quality voice service.
