MasterPortal is a powerful middleware platform that enables organizations to provide an unparalleled viewing experience in HD quality. IP video system administrators can easily customize and deliver dynamic, high-performance viewing interfaces for TV, Video on Demand, radio and interactive services, on any device.
MasterPortal lets viewers search and access live TV and radio channels via an Electronic Program Guide (EPG), discover and view video content on-demand, and interact with information pages via a user-friendly interface delivered on their preferred device.
Using the intuitive screen editor, all essential functions can be effortlessly added, including options to apply your organization’s branding, trigger recordings and inject promotions or messages to create tailored, interactive content for different audiences. In the hospitality sector for example, MasterPortal has the ability to provide guests with billing details, express checkout, room service, laundry service or taxi pick-up via the TV in their room.
The MasterPortal viewing interface can be developed for individuals or groups of viewers, with the flexibility of multiscreen delivery across standard TVs via AvediaPlayer Receivers, computer screens, SmartTVs and mobile devices, enhancing the way IP video content is viewed and delivered.
