Alticast, a global partner for the delivery of media entertainment, will show attendees of IBC 2014 how its latest solutions can simplify the development and delivery of new, more personalized, multiscreen TV viewing experiences. The demonstrations will take place at its IBC 2014 booth (Hall 1, Booth F36), September 11 – 16, at the Amsterdam RAI Exhibition and Congress Centre.
Alticast will showcase its entire line of solutions at the show, which range from components for home networking and security to those enabling multiple device support, with particular emphasis on its HDMI Media Express, AltiPlex™ Client-Server Cloud solutions and its collaborative development environment for Reference Design Kit (RDK) code integration.
“Alticast is driving innovation in the industry by offering compelling media entertainment software solutions for legacy and next-generation systems,” said Tiaan Schutte, Alticast’s President for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA). “Our Cloud-based products, RDK UI/UX and pre-integrated packages are prime examples of Alticast’s ground breaking solutions that shorten time to deployment, are cost effective and deliver a enticing user experience.”
Alticast’s key demonstrations at IBC 2014 include:
· The Alticast HDMI Media Express represents a new paradigm for IP video delivery by directly delivering content from the cloud or in concert with a home gateway. The HDMI Media Express enables service providers to securely deliver over the top content, live and on-demand programing efficiently. It also provides a TV Everywhere experience with it’s download-and-go, and plug-and-play capability. Leveraging RDK and Alticast’s TV Ready User Agent application framework, HDMI Media Express supports HTML5 and Android application delivery.
· Alticast’s AltiPlex Server Cloud Solution provides a complete services platform, including back office integration, metadata delivery, big-data support and a number of cloud services. A complete Cloud-based Personal Video Recording system and an innovative Cloud-based User Interface system are key offerings of the platform. Alticast’s Cloud UI application provides a thin client/server model for delivering the user experience to all devices in the home. This architecture reduces demands on the STB CPU and memory by pre-processing the UI in the Cloud. A web-based console enables the delivery of different UIs to different devices for user experience versatility and MSO testing and service.
· Alticast’s collaborative development environment for RDK code integration is a Cloud-based solution that enables system-on-a-chip (SoC) vendors, open software providers, multi-system operator (MSOs) and system integrators to utilize a single workflow and release structure for RDK code development.
· Alticast’s pre-integrated solutions end-to-end field-proven set top box software packages, are integrated with partner products and incorporate core AltiPlatform systems software, a customizable user interface and a variety of content security products. One of the demonstrations includes our award winning AltiView I user experience and another HbbTV design.
