Coveted Product Review Program
Alticast, a global partner for the delivery of media entertainment, today announced that its HDMI Media Express has received an exceptional “4 Diamond” rating in the Broadband Technology Report’s 2014 Diamond Technology Reviews, a highly regarded product review program that recognizes the best products and solutions for the cable television industry.
Alticast’s HDMI Media Express works in conjunction with a home gateway or cloud-based IP content to enable operators to securely deliver live and on-demand programing to the large screen. The small footprint of the device provides a TV Everywhere experience with its download-and-go and plug-and-play capability. The Alticast software integration on HDMI Media Express leverages both the Reference Design Kit (RDK), the popular pre-integrated software bundle endorsed by leading cable operators, and Alticast’s HTML5 TV Ready User Agent application framework. This framework allows seamless operation of HTML5 and Android applications, allowing operators to deliver a multi-functional and multi-screen entertainment solution.
“Receiving such high marks in this coveted product reviews program shows that cable industry experts recognize the value of HDMI Media Express and how it can be used by operators to expand their TV Everywhere services,” said John Carlucci, CTO, Alticast US. “Our HDMI Media Express solution represents a new paradigm for multi-screen IP video delivery, enabling operators to fully leverage the Cloud and home-based gateways to deliver new and compelling TV Everywhere services.”
“Operators are continually looking to expand their multiscreen capabilities and the Diamonds judges recognize the potential of Alticast’s HDMI Media Express to help MSOs offer new and irresistible viewing experiences,” said Tim Hermes, Publisher and Founder, Broadband Technology Report.

About the Diamond Technology Review program
The BTR Diamond Technology Reviews (“the Diamonds”) is a renowned industry program – now in its 9th year – that was developed to recognize some of the top products and solutions available to the cable industry as determined by a stellar panel of cable telecommunications engineering experts. Engineering executives from Bright House, Buckeye, Comcast, Boyer Broadband, Suddenlink, and Time Warner Cable were among the third-party judges for the 2014 Diamonds. Every year, BTR invites vendors to submit written information about products/solutions that have been released or upgraded since the previous year’s SCTE Cable-Tec Expo (October 2013). Criteria used in the Diamonds rankings include, first and foremost, unique technology or application thereof, innovation, ease of use, efficiency, reliability and contribution to profitability.
