Buckeye Broadband has signed an agreement to license Espial's (TSX:ESP) Elevate SaaS video platform. Elevate is a multi-tenant software-as-a-service (SaaS) video platform designed to allow operators to manage, deliver, and monetize video. The platform offers voice-based navigation, discovery, and viewing of traditional content and streaming services like Netflix and YouTube. It also provides operators with cloud tools including analytics, promotions, segmentation, and diagnostics.

"Elevate enhances the experience of our video customers, while giving us flexibility in how we deliver those experiences in the future," said Jeff Abbas, president and general manager of Buckeye Broadband. "The continuous innovation being driven on Elevate helps us increase customer engagement and satisfaction while mindfully controlling our expenses."

"We are excited to have the opportunity to work with Buckeye Broadband to enhance and enrich their customers' entertainment experience," said Matt James, Espial's vice president of North America sales. "The video industry is in the middle of a significant shift in which pay TV operators face unprecedented competition. With Elevate, operators of any size can have affordable access to the latest features that customers love, across a variety of traditional and next-generation platforms."

Buckeye Broadband, headquartered in Toledo, OH, provides high-speed Internet, digital TV and telephone services across northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan.
