As consumers become increasingly inundated with content, the choice can
be overwhelming. A deeper understanding of metadata is vital in order to
solve the issue, and the session at IBC will demonstrate how
machine-learning can be effectively used to ensure content is
meaningfully discovered through minimal effort.

"Too much choice is leaving today's viewers feeling lost and is
resulting in them switching away prematurely," said Samuel Sweet, senior
vice president, EMEA sales at TiVo. "This is an ongoing struggle for
content providers, and TiVo is dedicated to finding new ways that enable
them to create personalized video discovery experiences that improves
customer satisfaction and increases loyalty."

TiVo will be exhibiting its full suite of products on stand A31 in Hall
5 at IBC, where visitors can see demonstrations of TiVo's range of
operator solutions in the technology areas of User Experience, Metadata
and Personalized Content Discovery.

This will include TiVo's Next-Gen Platform, recently selected by TDS
Telecommunications, the seventh largest local exchange telephone company
in the U.S., and the latest TiVo Experience 4 which is being deployed by
leading operators RCN Telecom Services, Atlantic Broadband and Service

The TiVo Next-Gen Platform combines all the elements of TiVo's advanced
content discovery services to enable operators to drive customer loyalty
by bringing cutting-edge features and IPTV services to managed
set-top-boxes (i.e., Linux and Android TV), unmanaged bring-your-own
devices (i.e., Apple TV and Amazon Fire), mobile and web.

Also on show will be TiVo's Cubi Solutions, Personalised Content
Discovery – including the latest developments in TiVo Conversation – and
TiVo's Entertainment Metadata.
