yes, Israel’s satellite television provider, and the HomeGrid Forum, have reveraled that yes is using HomePNA home networking technology to power yes.Multiroom, its new whole-home DVR offering.
yes.Multiroom allows users to view a movie recorded on a yesMax Total DVR in any room of the house. Customers can start watching a movie in one room, pause it and continue watching in another. Along with yes.Multiroom, yes has introduced a new user interface incorporating a “personal viewing recommendation engine.”
“yes is a technology-driven company that strives to offer its customers leading edge products that enhance their viewing experience,” said Itzhak Elyakim, vice president of engineering and CTO of yes. “We have depended on HomePNA home networking technology over the last two years for our successful Video on Demand (VoD) service deployments. The success of that experience made HomePNA the obvious choice for our new yes.Multiroom, providing a reliable high speed backbone to distribute DVR service throughout our customers’ homes.”
