advertising to generate additional revenue streams. The solution can be
installed with minimal impact to the existing infrastructure in a short
timeframe, making it all the more attractive to operators."

looking to add the functionality of the Halo network media processor to add in
great features like trick plays to live streams or to record programs and
transfer them to mobile units and then to add in the capabilities for sending
instant video clips to friends and building custom TV channels with a la carte
content, [these features] make the Halo Experience server a game changer."
