aioTV, a global provider of back-office tools for video service providers, today announced they received U.S. Patent No. 9,027,065 granted by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office covering, among other things, the normalization of disparate metadata sources, associated packaging and video playback.
“We are hearing a common theme across large content owners and MVPDs,” said Mike Earle, aioTV CEO. “They are all struggling with the massive amount of metadata coming at them from more and more sources, none of which is in the same format nor easily added to a front end client. This patent and the associated methods in our metadata normalization engine are key to solving an industry wide problem that has immediate attention on it all the way to the C suites in these companies. This patent opens up fresh conversations around methods to help facilitate new presentation models to the owners and distributors of content.”
aioTV’s patents enable video providers to create channels and packages from a blend of VOD, linear and Internet video within a common experience. aioTV now offers the Metadata Normalization Engine to large content owners and MVPDs as an enabling technology for their middleware platforms and custom client experiences.
aioTV is a platform and provider of back-office tools that enables video service providers to easily aggregate, authenticate and deliver multiple sources of live, on-demand and freely available video content directly to the customer in a single, branded experience to the TV and across connected devices. The company’s cloud based management platform provides the ability to design, package and control an offering leveraging existing infrastructure, billing systems and DRMs for a quick, seamless implementation.
