Sigma Systems' Subscriber Information Service is a key element in the emerging area of advanced advertising, and Sigma Systems has taken a leadership role in establishing an advanced advertising ecosystem. The Subscriber Information Service provides TV operators with a solution for audience qualification, while protecting subscribers' identification and privacy. The increased adoption of video services, such as Video on Demand (VOD) and IPTV, has opened the door for entertainment and communications providers to deliver higher levels of personalization and interaction to the viewer. With the SCTE 130-compliant SIS, operators can understand their customers—including demographics, preferences and services available—to enable addressable campaigns for advertisers.

Sigma Systems is now a four-time winner of product of the year honors from TMC. In addition to the Cable.TMCnet.com Product of the Year Award, Sigma Systems also received BSS/OSS product of the year recognition for its Service Management Platform in 2009. In past years, Sigma Systems has won for its Hosted Commercial Voice Service Package in 2008 and Residential Voice Service Package in 2007.

"Our Subscriber Information Service is truly a leading solution in the area of advanced advertising," said Preston Gilmer, vice president of Product Marketing at Sigma Systems.  "Many believe 2010 to be the year when addressable advertising hits the mainstream, and Sigma Systems' audience qualification solution is a crucial element for cable and IPTV operators to deliver value to advertisers."
