ANTIK Technology has announced that it will showcase a new video placeshifting device at the IPTV World Forum in London. Juice TV Anywhere is an USB add-on able to re-stream video content to internet-connected devices, such as tablets, laptops or smartphones.

Slovakia-based device manufacturer ANTIK Technology announced a new member of the Juice line of devices for IPTV – a multiscreen video placeshifting solution called Juice TV Anywhere. This tiny USB device complements the line of Juice set-top boxes and enables streaming of videos to various online devices (tablets, latops, smartphones).

Juice TV Anywhere is a compact USB dongle ready to control, transcode and re-stream video content from Juice Pro and Juice Lite set-top boxes on the screen of a PC or mobile device networked through home network or broadband internet connection. ANTIK will support software client for Windows, iOS, Windows Phone 7 and Android.

“You don’t have to stay in your living room to watch the TV,” says Igor Kolla, ANTIK Technology’s CEO. “You pay for it, so you can take it anywhere with you and you do not have to miss the show you want to watch just because you are not in front of your TV,” he adds. To take your TV anywhere with you, the new media streamer requires only to plug in the USB dongle into the set-top box. Juice TV Anywhere will have its official premiere at the IPTV World Forum 2011 in London in Antik Technology’s stand on the ground floor on the right side from the entrance.

Adding Juice TV Anywhere to the Juice set-top boxes creates new opportunities in the entertainment industry. It is an easily monetizable value for IPTV service providers and an easy way to increase the provider’s ARPU. This solution supports adaptive bitrate from hundreds of Kbps to 100 Mbps so the delivered picture is uninterrupted even in low-speed networks.
