ActiveVideo to demo Smart TV over Cloud

February 14, 2011

ActiveVideo Networks will demonstrate how its CloudTV Platform can uniformly bring Smart TV functionality and applications to any set-top box or television equipped with CI Plus (Common Interface Plus) modules at the Cable Congress.

ActiveVideo will show how CloudTV can build value for cable system operators, programmers and third-party developers by enabling the limitless delivery of content and applications that are streamed from the network cloud.  The ActiveVideo exhibit will demonstrate the breadth of content that can be created using Web-based development technologies in a “write once, deploy everywhere” environment.

“Media companies today are expending significant resources to ensure that apps are compatible with the wide variety of platforms in the marketplace,” said Ronald Brockmann, managing director, Europe for ActiveVideo Networks.  “The beauty of CloudTV is that it slashes application development time and expenses, while allowing the same rich engagement experience across any device, including televisions that support the emerging CI Plus 1.3 standard.”

CloudTV currently is in approximately 5 million homes served by major cable and IPTV providers in the US and the international marketplace.
