SAINT MARTIN D’HÈRES — NEOTION is demonstrating at the IBC2014 the new DVBeacon concept, a Twin Tuner Headless Satellite Home Media Gateway for Pay-TV Operators. Consumers all over the world want Premium content as well as the features of a Home Media gateway. The DVBeacon allows now Pay-TV Operators to satisfy their needs at an attractive price.

The DVBeacon has two tuners, a smartcard interface, an Ethernet connection, two USB2.0 ports and optional internal Hard Disk Drive. Any client connected on the Home Network can get then a set of services from the Home Media Gateway, such as:

  • Watch Premium TV Linear or Video recorded content on client devices including Smart-TVs, HDMI Dongles on Legacy TVs, Tablets and Smartphones, by launching an APP;
  • Access to hybrid services either from Broadcast and/or Broadband;
  • Record content, from Live menu or from EPG at any time;
  • Share any type of Media, across the local home network;
  • Load and run applications like games.

NEOTION selected the Media-OS for all of the benefits that it brings to the TV operators. The modular and scalable architecture make it easy to integrate new applications and respond quickly to customer demand. The User Interface is an independent component, based on Javascript and HTML5 web languages; this gives a lot of freedom and flexibility to develop attractive User Experience and applications. The simplicity of the architecture, with the capability to re-use most of software components lead to fast and robust integration, minimizing the cost of development and maintenance.
