Wireless set-top box suppliers AirTies says it will showcase its “innovative” wireless networking receiver at the upcoming IBC technology show in Amsterdam, as well as its solution for H.265/HEVC set-top box.

Turkish-based AirTies says it will demo a 4 x 4 video ‘bridge’ to handle the 802.11ac wireless standard The Air 4820 enables almost triple the throughput of video and data over greater distances to connect more devices, such as TV, Tablets and mobile devices, to stream and view High Definition (HD) video.

The Video Bridge uses the state-of-the art 4X4 Quantenna chipset, providing 1.7Gbps throughput and supports advanced beamforming to expand the field of delivery.  This combines with the patented AirTies Mesh software to enables 100 per cent wireless coverage around the home and automatic network streaming optimisation directly from access point to access point. The high-performance video bridge maximises bandwidth usage allowing content to be wirelessly streamed at 5GHz throughout the home to multiple TVs in HD.  AirTies will also be introducing a VDSL Gateway, the Air5770, which is a combined wireless gateway and video bridge with integrated 802.11ac technology.

As for the new High Efficiency Video Codec for H.265, AirTies says it will demo the latest Broadcom chipset capable of handling the new codec at IBC.
