Industry Telephone Company and Anevia Bring Multiscreen to Rural America

Paris – Anevia, a leader in video streaming and infrastructure solutions for OTT, live TV and video-on-demand has announced that Texas based telecommunications provider Industry Telephone Company (ITC) has launched a comprehensive multiscreen service leveraging Anevia’s ViaMotion technology.

ITC’s continued desire to bring the very best of TV technology to its 2000 subscribers led the company to select ViaMotion as the cornerstone of a new, over-the-top, service. The ViaMotion Streamer meets the need for a high- performance and agnostic platform able to run on any hardware while offering true scalability for future services to be deployed easily.

The new OTT platform, deployed by Anevia in partnership with Minerva Networks, allows Industry Telephone Company to deliver an enhanced multiscreen experience to its subscribers across 60 channels.

“We chose Anevia for its ability to deliver the latest OTT feature set in a short timeframe,” said Brent Barrett, Vice President of Information technology at Industry Telephone Company. “Since scalability is also part of the equation, rural Texas can expect more innovative features to reach more homes over the years. We were very pleased with the support and engineering provided during the integration of the Anevia server into our network infrastructure. Any problems or issues we faced were resolved in a very timely manner. We were contacted very promptly after the install by Anevia’s support group to check on how things were operating, which tells me that Anevia really cares both about customer satisfaction and the products it delivers.”

“We are delighted to help Industry Telephone Company put rural America on an equal footing with urban areas when it comes to accessing the latest and greatest in video technology,” adds Tristan Leteurtre, CEO of Anevia.
