Geneva, Switzerland: Advanced Digital Broadcast, a leading supplier of technology to the global digital television industry, announced today that it will be showcasing its latest innovations at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo®.
In the Networked Home Pavilion (Booth 1719) in New Orleans next week, ADB will show how its leadership in software provides innovative answers to the challenges facing today’s operators:
ADB’s Virtual Gateway is an advanced software solution that distributes multi-media capabilities throughout the home. Every set-top box powered by ADB’s Virtual Gateway makes its resources available in a smart way, so that the consumer always has the entire home network’s content seamlessly accessible on his chosen device.
The Virtual Gateway software solution makes use of current generation ADB and 3rd Party hardware platforms and supports 3rd party OCAP™ and GEM based guides. It can therefore be deployed without disrupting the operator’s installed base of tru2way™ devices and without large capital expenditures. While large physical gateways are not needed with the ADB Virtual Gateway, they are fully supported, hence providing operators with a complete flexibility, now and in the future.
ADB will demonstrate how its solution provides consumers the ability to enjoy pay-TV, music and videos from wherever they are in the home: subscribers can use their gaming consoles to tune to a pay-TV channel or watch recorded programs, or access music tracks and videos stored on their DVR and play them on their smart phones.
“Our new Virtual Gateway resolves how to connect everyone and every device in the home. It offers a great consumer experience, while providing operators with a fully scalable platform that significantly lowers the cost of deploying multi-room services” said Timothy P. Schermerhorn, SVP & GM of Advanced Digital Broadcast’s Americas Cable business unit.
tru2way® analyzer for network verification
This is a unique field tool for operators to verify their tru2way signal. This test system, using ADB’s tru2way® certified platform and CableLabs® EYES software, makes it easy for operators to debug and troubleshoot their tru2way network.
ADB’s innovation will be on display in booth 1719 of the Networked Home Pavilion at Cable-Tec Expo October 20-22 in the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.
