Zenverge to Unveil Industry-First, Multi-Screen Video Gateway Solutions Powering Tier One Operators at The Cable Show 2013; Company to Demonstrate Innovative Gateway Applications and Introduce Cutting-Edge HD HEVC Content Networking Technology
SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Zenverge, a leading developer of advanced content networking ICs, announced today it will unveil its industry-first, multi-screen hybrid gateway solutions and innovative, real-time HD HEVC content networking technology at The Cable Show in Washington, D.C., June 10-11, 2013.
Zenverge will showcase its superior content processing technology on revolutionary operator gateway solutions and IP streamer products, allowing up to four devices to access content simultaneously. Using Zenverge’s family of ZN200 ICs, operators can deliver the highest-quality video content to a wide range of IP-connected devices at dramatically reduced operating and capital expenditures while substantially enhancing the end-user experience. Users will be able to view live or recorded content on any IP device or take their content-to-go with the fastest HD content processing in the industry, at four times real-time of one stream.
“Our customers are tier-one operators and set-top box manufacturers who are aggressively moving to a much more cost-effective and feature rich gateway model,” saidAmir Mobini, president and CEO at Zenverge. “We have been selected by some of the largest suppliers to North American cable operators because of the quality, performance, maturity and system cost savings of our content networking ICs.”
Zenverge produced the world’s first Quad stream HD content networking ICs with the smallest memory footprint of any competitive solution, enabling content to stream to mobile and gaming devices, as well as legacy MPEG 2 devices, quickly and efficiently. Zenverge’s networking ICs provide additional advantages such as full HD to HD transcoding, a capability many SOCs are unable to provide due to memory bandwidth constraints. This feature is becoming increasingly more important when streaming to wireless set-top boxes and smart TVs that require the full HD experience on large displays. Storage efficiency is also an important differentiator of Zenverge’s content networking ICs, providing the ability to store 5-15 times more content on a traditional hard disk drive.
The world’s largest original design manufacturers (ODMs) and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have developed new products using Zenverge’s flagship ZN family of content networking chipsets. For instance, the company’s flagship ZN200 has been designed into the ARRIS Media Gateway MG2402 based on the Reference Design Kit (RDK) from Comcast; incorporated into TiVo Inc’s® Stream product to upgrade their multi-room DVR to support multi-screen; built into Motorola’s VMS platform for Verizon’s Media ServerVMS1100; and included in Silicondust’s HDHomeRun®, a DLNA-Certified DMS Tuner with integrated HW transcoding capable of processing up to four Broadcast to IP video streams.
In addition, Zenverge is taking a leadership role in processing HEVC HD content for the next-generation HEVC devices as well as legacy devices that can only support MPEG2 or H.264. Using Zenverge content networking ICs with integrated HEVC transcoding, operators can seamlessly support cutting-edge broadcast formats and new consumer devices in order to deliver a seamless end-user experience.
The product demonstrations will feature:
- Hybrid Headless and Headed Gateways
- Multi-room DVRs streaming to wireless multi-screens
- Video Gateways that process broadcast to IP for streamer/mover applications
- IP transcoder adaptors to upgrade multi-room DVRs to support wireless tablets and smartphones
- Media NAS products streaming to Android and iOS devices
- Professional equipment for high-density, low-power transcoding applications
- HEVC to AVC faster than real-time transcoding
