New Morega Product Targeted at TV Operators Enables Cable and Satellite Subscribers
To View Wide Range of Content on Multiple Devices
LAS VEGAS, Jan. 9, 2012 /CNW/ - 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show Morega Systems, Inc., a leading vendor of multi-screen media portability solutions, today announced the introduction and availability of the Morega QewStation™ II, a new turnkey media streaming and portability product with integrated Multimedia Over Coax (MoCA) networking for television (TV) operators that extends multi-room subscription viewing content capabilities to other screens and devices, including tablets, smartphones, and personal computers (PCs). The first of its kind, this innovative technology, unveiled this morning and demonstrated this week at the 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, enables cable and satellite subscribers to stream, sync, port, and archive premium video content on multiple devices for viewing anytime, anywhere.
With embedded MoCA 1.1 and a powerful video transcoding system-on-chip (SoC), the QewStation II gives multi-system operators (MSOs) the ability to enhance their multi-room offerings by adding multi-screen and content-sharing capabilities to set-top boxes (STBs) and digital video recorders (DVRs). As part of the technology, Morega provides a white-label hardware and software solution. To facilitate easier integration into existing applications, the company also offers an application programming interface (API) and software development kits (SDKs) for Android, iOS, Windows, and MacOS development environments.
"With the QewStation II, consumers now have the ability to easily take premium cable and television video content with them wherever they go, and view it on the broadest range of screens and devices," said Philip Poulidis, president and chief executive officer of Morega Systems, Inc. "More importantly, with an extensive set of development tools and technologies, Morega makes it simple for MSOs to deploy and support the QewSTATION II and for CE manufacturers to integrate its components and software into their own products ― and ultimately provide their customers with rich, flexible content viewing capabilities."
Available as a plug-and-play, self-installed add-on for cable and satellite customers, QewStation II leverages industry standards for networking and security, and conforms to approved standards by the Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA), CableLabs, and DTLA (DTCP-IP). Additionally, in conjunction with a sophisticated back-office server cluster, the solution also incorporates many other features and benefits, including certificate and encryption key provisioning and management; mobile statistics and analytics; multi-device parental controls; authenticated domain management; adaptive streaming and transcoding; and secure mobile client solutions.
