Alticast Demonstrates its Comprehensive RDK-based Solutions and Services
Amsterdam – March 4, 2015 – Alticast, a global partner for the delivery of media entertainment, will show European cable operators attending the upcoming Cable Congress trade show how to take advantage of the Reference Design Kit (RDK) to deliver new services. The demonstrations will take place throughout the show (March 11-13) at The Square conference center in Brussels, Belgium at stand 17.
“Now that the RDK supports the popular European Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) standard it is far more applicable to the European cable market and Cable Congress is the ideal venue for us to demonstrate the potential of the RDK to operators throughout the continent,” said Tiaan Schutte, Alticast’s President for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA). “As one of the first vendors to get behind the RDK effort, Alticast has built a tremendous amount of experience with the RDK and our comprehensive suite of RDK-based tools and services can enable European cable operators and cable equipment vendors to take maximum advantage of the RDK.”
Alticast’s key Cable Congress 2015 demonstrations will include:
· Alticast’s RDK solutions which include modular and customizable Application Framework building blocks (TVRUA) and User Interface components (AltiView) that support standard industry interfaces (HbbTV, OIPF, HTML5/CSS, Java Script/DLNA). These optional solutions enable operators to supplement or fulfill the operator platform with all of the components necessary for a robust and versatile RDK solution.
· 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 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 processor and memory by pre-processing the UI in the Cloud, enabling cable operators to use ‘thin client’ STBs. Operators can take advantage of Alticast’s Cloud UI to deploy new user experiences (UX) much quicker. It also provides the opportunity to present a variety of UX in a household, for example a child-based, a sports or a movie experience.
