BitRouter Announces ATSC 3.0 Gateway at NAB 2019 with Proof-of-Concept Demo Targeting TiVo’s BOLT OTA Player

  • BitRouter adds gateway functionality to its ATSC3pro set-top box receiver

LAS VEGAS — BitRouter, a leading provider of software for terrestrial, IP, cable, satellite and mobile receivers, announced today that it has enhanced the capabilities of its ATSC3pro receiver to include gateway functionality. This will allow ATSC3pro customers to both use the device as a set-top box and stream live content to remote devices based on Linux, Android or iOS operating systems. BitRouter’s HTML5 based ATSC UX SDK can also be used to develop applications for set-top boxes and gateway clients. As a proof of concept, BitRouter will showcase a TiVo® BOLT DVR integrated as a gateway client for ATSC3pro at the NAB Show 2019, taking place in Las Vegas, April 6-11, 2019.

BitRouter’s founder and president, Gopal Miglani said, “ATSC3pro lowers the barrier to entry for a ready-to-deploy ATSC receiver platform. BitRouter brings the same world-class software to ATSC 3.0 that it has deployed in over 30 million ATSC 1.0 receivers and 25 million cable receivers since 2003. We are pleased to be working with TiVo, a pioneer in DVR, OTA and user experience innovation for this ATSC 3.0 proof of concept.”

“This proof of concept shows that the TiVo BOLT can continue to be a relevant solution for the emerging ATSC 3.0 market,” stated Ted Malone, VP of consumer products and service at TiVo Corp. “It has been a pleasure to work with the BitRouter team and I am impressed with the seamless integration of ATSC 3.0 content within TiVo’s New Experience.”

BitRouter will be demonstrating the ATSC3pro gateway working with the TiVo BOLT OTA player in booth N1831 in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
