NeoNova unveils YourStream TV for local channels on Roku

New broadband video solution gives subscribers the local television options they want at affordable prices

KANSAS CITY, Mo., April 15, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- NeoNova, an industry leader in cloud-based services for regional telcos, today announced that the company's latest live broadcast streaming solution for Roku gives affiliate customers a new way for their subscribers to watch local television.

YourStream TV from NeoNova allows service providers to deliver cost-effective local television to broadband customers through a customizable Roku channel with a fully brandable interface and tailored channel lineups. This new service offers end-users a lower-cost alternative to cable and satellite subscriptions or inconsistent over-the-air signals, and it comes with authentication functionality so local channels remain in compliance with retransmission agreements.

Waitsfield and Champlain Valley Telecom (WCVT), an independent telecommunications company serving the Mad River and Central Champlain Valley regions of Vermont, successfully integrated YourStream TV into its service options through a white-label version called GMA Video. This solution now gives WCVT a real competitive advantage in the market because customers no longer have to look for multiple providers for telephone, Internet, and TV.

"Customers have said for years that local TV channels are a priority," said Kurt Gruendling, vice president of marketing and business development, WCVT. "Local channels often take precedent over premium or subscription channels, but people don't want to pay exorbitant amounts of money and only receive a handful of channels."

YourStream TV has a simple, inexpensive setup that comes with all the extra benefits of Roku, including access to Netflix®, Hulu Plus™, Amazon® Instant Video, HBO GO®, and more than 1,000 other channels. It also comes with a trick play feature so users can pause, rewind, and fast-forward any live channel they are currently watching.

"Our goal is to provide our affiliates the tools they require to be successful, even if that means developing new services to fit a specific need," said Ray Carey, CEO of NeoNova." YourStream TV allows rural telco customers to offer live broadcast video services by leveraging a cost-effective, hosted model using affordable consumer hardware. The television and video marketplace is changing rapidly and we are happy to be working with WVCT to introduce changes right along with it. This new service enables an affordable triple play that is a real game changer."

NeoNova will highlight this latest streaming video innovation and other products and services this week at the IP Possibilities Conference & Expo in Kansas City, Mo. NeoNova is in booth number 207/209. NeoNova CEO Ray Carey will deliver the conference's Thursday keynote address on hosted services at 8:15 a.m., and Chris Beatson, vice president of project management and software engineering, will speak about emerging technologies, customized content, and consumer control on Wednesday at 1 p.m.

Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk.

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
