InfoValue to support VidiPlay deployments and expand VidiPlay marketing

InfoValue Computing, Inc. (InfoValue), experts in providing innovative, interactive IPTV platforms and solutions, today announced that it has completed the transition of ATX Networks’ VidiPlay IPTV middleware to InfoValue. After ATX Networks’ successful launch of the co-designed OEM IPTV solution, where InfoValue was the original core developer of the platform, a transfer to InfoValue has been concluded.

The partnership between InfoValue and ATX Networks resulted in several successful large scale enterprise IPTV deployments. The VidiPlay turnkey system utilizes InfoValue’s branded BizTV solution along with ATX Networks’ suite of digital video processing products. The head-end provides a complete IP output of an HD channel lineup to end points consisting of desktops, mobile devices, IP set-top boxes, and SmartTVs.

Under the terms of the agreement, InfoValue receives a ten year renewable license for using the VidiPlay trademark brand.

“We are delighted to culminate our ATX Networks integration and marketing efforts with several high-profile deployments. InfoValue will maintain the marketing and support of the VidiPlay IPTV middleware as well as continue to add enhanced features. Employees at the customer sites benefit from HD IPTV channels, VOD, network-based PVR, and interaction with the employee services portal of VidiPlay,” said Aubrey Flanagan, vice president of business development at InfoValue. ATX Networks’ UCrypt® gateway, VersAtivePro® transcoders, and DigiVu® IP MPEG encoders provide the capability for the end-to-end IPTV system to ingest content from a variety of sources and to deliver HD IPTV channels encrypted using approved Digital Rights Management software. “Based on the tremendous customer feedback and reported employee productivity increases, we look forward to expanding the deployment footprint and feature set of this integrated IPTV solution by utilizing the licensed VidiPlay trademark,” added Flanagan.

“The transition of the VidiPlay trademark to InfoValue corresponds with a shift in focus of ATX Networks’ marketing and sales efforts to our core video processing products. We’re confident InfoValue will carry on the success of the VidiPlay solution and we look forward to a continued productive partnership,” stated James Anderson, Sr. Product Manager, Digital Video Solutions, at ATX Networks.
