Mexico’s Cablevisión deploys Ligos mosaic guide
Cablevisión of Mexico is using a mosaic-based program guide, called Ligos MediaRig Mosaic, from San Francisco-based Ligos Corp.
MediaRig Mosaic shows multiple thumbnails of live video streams. Operators can group content together and create audience-specific portals for news, sports, family and premium content, for example, and can incorporate advertising and service promotions into the presentation.
Cablevisión’s large-scale implementation includes a master mosaic channel that links to subcategories of more mosaics, which also feature interactive advertising for programming and additional provider services.
Mosaic is compatible with a wide variety of electronic program guide (EPG) middleware, including i-Guide and Passport Interactive from Macrovision, Microsoft Foundation, SARA, MDN 3.0 and ETV/EBIF, Ligos said.
Jean Paul Broc Haro, CEO of Cablevisión, said: “Having evaluated a number of options, we found MediaRig Mosaic to be the most versatile and reliable solution to bring this cutting-edge viewing experience to our subscribers. Further, Ligos provided exemplary support and features that allowed us to easily implement a key enhancement – dynamic advertising – for our digital mosaic channels.”
