The platform may be also used by the television recorder suppliers to store the recorded content, without any advertisements or other irrelevant material.
EPG (Electronic Program Guide) does not define the real starting and finishing time of programs/movies because their content includes advertisements. The Assistant enables a precise schedule of content broadcast, what allows precise planning of recording time without an unnecessary margin. This minimizes the loss of data by the end user in case a program is rescheduled and the solution supplier benefits from saving disk space even up to 40%.
The tool gives wide possibilities of managing the stored content, for example exchanging advertisements with other content or blocking fast forwarding of ads, etc.
