LAS VEGAS, January 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Sagemcom showcases during CES in Las Vegas ultra-HD television, advanced video content redistribution and next-generation wireless transmission. These innovations are combined to enable the operators to deliver a performing and secure multi-screen multi-device superior viewing experience to their subscribers.
The new Sagemcom Ultra HD platform is able to deliver extremely sharp pictures and smooth motion, with a resolution up to four times higher than standard High Definition. The platform supports High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), thus allowing operators to optimize the bandwidth required to broadcast their content.
Sagemcom also showcases next-generation video gateways, acting as video server redistributing High Definition content within the home, on any connected device, such as client STBs, tablets or smartphones - without any compromise on the quality of the viewing experience, thanks to a multi HD transcoder embedded in the digital core chipset of the product.
The platform, powered by an ARM chipset and running a software suite developed by Sagemcom, delivers a highly secured content redistribution - thanks to the integration of a complete CAS-to-DRM management solution, granting an optimal protection of content owners' assets.
Sagemcom relies on its proven expertise on Wi-Fi, including latest 802.11ac, already deployed. The next-generation STBs embed such wireless solution, in dual concurrent configuration, that allows the operators to propose a smooth, reliable, performing and wireless High Definition TV distribution at home.
