SAN MATEO, Calif. -- Conviva, Inc., the global leader in preemptive video stream optimization, today announced a landmark six-year deal with Home Box Office, Inc. for Conviva to continue to provide video optimization support for HBO’s broadband offerings, HBO GO and MAX GO. The deal comes at a pivotal moment in the digital entertainment industry when consumer demand for a seamless and consistent TV experience on any device at any time is growing at an unprecedented rate while the technical challenges of delivering TV over IP devices have never been greater. HBO continues to be a leader in this space, building on the latest innovations and content distribution platforms, to bring its programming libraries online though its highly successful and acclaimed broadband offerings HBO GO and MAX GO. The deal marks a continuation and expansion of Conviva’s partnership with HBO, first announced in May 2011, when HBO became an early mover in the TV Everywhere initiative, providing its subscribers with HBO programs and movies on a variety of digital platforms. The deal also expands Conviva’s suite of service offerings to HBO’s international partners to help support the distribution of HBO GO internationally. “Television is rapidly expanding to the Internet.” said Conviva CEO Darren Feher. “At Conviva, we enable our partners to reprioritize and invest in areas where they can innovate, while Conviva focuses on providing a consistent high quality, protected experience for their loyal viewers. HBO GO is an exceptional example of the success our partner strategy is able to deliver." Conviva Inc.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
