Broadbus Technologies announced a new version of its B-1 on-demand video platform, this one with new reliability features and enhanced support for IPTV-based advanced video services such as nDVR, time-shifted TV, and on-demand ad insertion, all distributed to a number of devices beyond the TV.

The Broadbus B-1 Video Server and Stream Commander management software have also been updated with support for H.264/MPEG-4, improved security (including SSHv2, TACACS+, Denial of service (DOS) prevention), and enhanced fault tolerance and reliability.

"We've always been ready for prime time with VOD, but now we're ready for phase two of on-demand, for services like Cablevision's networked DVR and Time Warner's Start Over," said Tom Kennedy, senior director of marketing at Broadbus.

Kennedy said the new version of the B-1 is being tested by a number of service providers he declined to name.

In July, Motorola said it would buy Broadbus. The acquisition is expected to close in Q3.
