AirTies Wireless Networks has partnered with Norigin Media, a TV Everywhere Company to launch a new multi-media casting STB which is used to cast TV and Video streams from mobile devices onto larger screens at home.
The casting STB been developed to enable not only TV and video content to be seamlessly shared between mobile devices and TVs but also all other types including games, social media, music, etc. This new casting solution is targeted at mobile and converged network operators looking to increase the stickiness of their services in the connected home environment. Using cast streaming technology developed in conjunction with Norigin Media, the AirTies STB uses the broadband connection to offer adaptive bit rate technology to enable video and other multimedia content to be pushed (or CAST) to the larger screen via the wireless network rather than streaming. The smartphone or tablets becomes the user interface and allows the consumer to select a programme via their personal device and push it onto a TV in full HD.
According to Bulent Celebi, Executive Chairman and co-Founder of AirTies: “This latest innovation draws on the experience gleaned from developing a similar OTT solution for converged mobile, fixed and broadband operator Orange Spain. It allows any mobile operator to offer a full featured pay-TV solution bringing satellite quality video and security from the smart phone to the TV without expensive media gateways. It enables the ideal user experience of searching, selecting and socialising on the smart phone while viewing in high quality on the main screen.”
