Alticast to get up close and personal at Cable Show
Alticast will be showing a range of technologies at The Cable Show next week that address the increased demand for personalized video services.
Demonstrations include the company’s “set-top box on a stick” HDMI Media Express as well as several boxes that were built using the Reference Design Kit and Alticast’s integrated HTML5-based application framework technology.
Other demonstrations on hand in Alticast’s booth include cloud DVR, CVP-2, multi-screen, 4K, NCAS downloadable security and the company’s new cloud-based app store.
“Consumers want personalized, increasingly interactive TV experiences that can be enjoyed in the home or on the go and Alticast’s software solutions give operators complete control in deciding how and what they deliver to their subscribers,” said John Carlucci, chief technology officer, Alticast US. “The Cable Show attendees will be able to get up close and personal with several demonstrations that not only leverage the RDK integrated software bundle endorsed by many of the world’s top cable operators, but also highlight the technological strides Alticast is making to enable a reliable, state-of-the-art TV experience.”
The Reference Design Kit (RDK) is a pre-integrated software bundle that provides a common framework for powering customer-premises equipment (CPE) from TV service providers, including set-top boxes, gateways, and converged devices. It was created to accelerate the deployment of next-gen video gateways and set-top boxes.
The RDK is supported by more than 140 licensees, and is administered by the RDK Management LLC, a joint venture between Comcast Cable, Time Warner Cable and Liberty Global.
