Unveiling its latest generation of wireless video bridges and set-top boxes at IBC2014 is AirTies.
Making its global debut is AirTies’ wireless STB, the Air 7405, which the company says is one of the first STBs to meet the new HEVC/H.265 video decoding standards. The Air 7405 utilises the latest Broadcom 7250 chipset, and has the capability for users to access IPTV services via the STB while simultaneously launching applications such as online video streaming alongside it. The Air 7405 features built-in 2×2 802.11ac wireless connectivity, operating at 2.4 or 5.0GHz frequencies, together with AirTies’ Mesh Technology, allowing consumer self-service installation and extending wireless coverage.
AirTies is also demonstrating its latest wireless video solutions. The Air 4820 is claimed to be the world’s fastest wireless bridge using a single chipset, the Quantenna 4×4 802.11ac with beamforming, which increases delivery speeds from 600Mbps to 1.7Gbps, allowing simultaneous streaming of up to 10 HD videos to multiple devices around the home, the company says.
The Air 4920, designed to be the world’s smallest 11ac 1.6Gbps dual-band concurrent wireless booster device, features the Broadcom 3X3 802.11ac with beamforming silicon. Alongside the 2X2 802.11n technology, it is said to support high performance video on the latest 5.0GHz tablets while optimising video performance on 2.4GHz devices.
A new cloud application that allows consumers to view the topology of their home network and the traffic flows therein is also being shown.
Via its interactive user interface, the cloud application is planned to assist users or operators in troubleshooting any problems with the performance, speed and coverage experience in the home.
