"Our ability to normalize multiple sources of content, provide subscriber, device and player management along with packaging and control toolsets enabled YipTV to quickly realize their vision," said Mike Earle, aioTV CEO.
Mike Earle, CEO of aioTV, said in a statement that the video software company will make its money through advertising and will succeed by following YouTube and other OTT services' rules.
The organization's patented system makes it easy to tap into these sources' streaming players and digital rights management systems without disturbing the core video asset in any way.
added that he
hopes this new Web video product will help aioTV
create a platform that combines OTT with an operator's linear pay TV service.
The company's partners have taken longer than expected to utilize aioTV's
full system because they are concerned that it will take too long to integrate with billing and other systems.
"Hopefully, this is a way to break the log jam," Earle
thinks the patent will help the industry gain control of the large amount of metadata that's delivered from many different sources.
