Liberty Global partners up for IP multimedia home gateway
May 14, 2010
Liberty Global has announced plans to work with Samsung, Intel Corporation, NDS and Nagravision to build a new common IP gateway device for its European digital TV customers. The multimedia home gateway will be an all-IP platform capable of distributing video, voice and data content throughout the home and to multiple video displays. The user interface will seamlessly integrate video content, widgets, apps, and an advanced search and recommendation engine.
Samsung will build the multimedia home gateway, which will be powered by the Intel Atom CE Media Processor. The middleware and the user experience will be provided by NDS, based on Flash Technology. Nagravision will provide the conditional access solution through NAGRA Media Access. This solution will support MoCA and WiFi, and participate in the Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) ecosystem.
