Espial Granted Patent For FCC

Espial has announced that it has been granted U.S. Patent No. 8,286,217 by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
The patent covers technology that enables service providers to implement fast channel change (FCC) on set-top boxes and TVs powered by IPTV networks. Together with the current patent grant, Espial now has patents with more than 80 claims that specifically cover the fast channel change technology area.
"Espial is honored to be awarded another patent by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office that further expands our intellectual property portfolio," said Jaison Dolvane, president and CEO, Espial. "Service providers globally are migrating to deliver live TV over IP networks, and a fast channel change user experience is crucial to enabling a successful transition. Espial's innovations in video over IP date back to products we have been commercially deploying since the early 2000s, and we continue to invest in further developments."
