ActiveVideo Activates 'AppCloud'
SAN JOSE, Calif. -- At IBC 2019, ActiveVideo will introduce the new ActiveVideo AppCloud, a virtualized app platform that brings the most popular video entertainment to any television utilizing the world’s favorite Android applications.
The huge popularity of app-based video content means that operators today are facing massive customer demand for OTT viewing experiences to supplement their current video and TV offerings. The ActiveVideo AppCloud integrates OTT into the television experience by running Android applications in the cloud, enabling service providers to serve entertainment from Android APKs to any connected TV or set-top device, regardless of its capabilities.
Today, ActiveVideo is delivering virtualized content to over 18m set-top devices. The new ActiveVideo AppCloud combines the power, independence, and diversity of the Android ecosystem with ActiveVideo’s industry leading virtualization technology and experience.
The ActiveVideo AppCloud virtualized environment removes the need for apps to be ported directly onto the device, mitigating storage and processor limitations for current, legacy, and future platforms.
The ActiveVideo AppCloud will be initially offered via a subscription model and is expected to be commercially available in mid-2020.
