Key Products
Espial Media Service Platform
The Espial Media Service Platform is a powerful headend system that allows operators to create, introduce, manage, and monetize a seamless multiscreen user experience. Through a comprehensive range of multiscreen capabilities, including service customization, enhanced content protection, and seamless cross-device use-case support, operators can deliver the highest quality of experience to subscribers. The Espial Media Service Platform can be customized to support TV Everywhere services by market segments based on regional, language, and other requirements. This allows operators to tailor TV channel lineups, pricing models, movies, and services including linear TV, video-on-demand (VOD), time-shift television (TSTV), digital video recording (DVR), and pay-per-view (PPV) for their target markets.

For enhanced content security, Espials Media Service Platform features a robust set of controls that enable an operator to meet multiscreen content licensing obligations by limiting access to content based on geography, user, and device. It also allows operators to support cross-device use cases, such as the one-time setting of parental controls from any device, place-shifting across devices including set-top boxes, bookmarking between devices, and unified searching. Additionally, the platform now supports registration of multiple users and multiscreen devices per account, an important feature that empowers operators to manage and customize video services for each person in the household.
