As well as showing its IP video platform HDMI Media Express, Alticast is also presenting its AltiPlex Server Cloud Solution which provides a complete services platform, including back office integration, metadata delivery, big data support and cloud services.
A complete Cloud-based Personal Video Recording system and an innovative Cloud-based User Interface system are key offerings of the platform, the company says, while Alticast’s Cloud UI application provides a thin client/server model for delivering the user experience to all devices in the home. This architecture is claimed to reduce demands on the STB CPU and memory by pre-processing the UI in the Cloud. A web-based console enables the delivery of different UIs to different devices for user experience versatility and MSO testing and service.
Alticast’s collaborative development environment for RDK code integration is also being featured at IBC. It is a Cloud-based solution that enables system-on-a-chip (SoC) vendors, open software providers, multi-system operator (MSOs) and system integrators to use a single workflow and release structure for RDK code development.
It is also providing demonstrations of its pre-integrated solutions, including a demonstration of end-to-end systems. These complete set top box software packages provide core AltiPlatform systems software, a customisable user interface and a variety of content security products. The demos include one based on the AltiView I user experience and another HbbTV design.
