-- At this week's Independent Show, Telco and Cable operators will get to see voice command for IPTV with Alexa, the Amazon Echo device, as well as the Google Home device using the Innovative Systems IPTV Middleware solution. With this integration, subscribers can request a channel change and search for a specific program through these home devices using voice commands. Users can simply say "Alexa, ask TV remote to watch channel 22," and the TV will change to channel 22.
According to Innovative Systems Vice President, Jerry Weber, "This provides our customers a voice command solution, using their existing in-home device that will enhance their TV viewing experience. This feature will allow subscribers to perform actions such as changing the channel and searching for content by simply using voice commands."About Innovative Systems
