Ultra wideband (UWB) solutions continue to gain momentum this week at the TelcoTV Conference and Exhibition with a range of leading set-top box, residential gateway and network digital video recorder manufacturers – including Amedia, Complete Media Systems, Entone Technologies, Magnum Semiconductor, Siemens Home and Office Communication Devices and UTStarcom -- demonstrating and introducing advanced video solutions using technology from Tzero Technologies. The offerings created by these organizations and others will help accelerate the adoption of high-definition and IPTV services, ease and speed the installation of these services in the home, and drive significant differentiation for service providers around the world.
"The availability of ultra wideband-based solutions for connecting consumer electronics throughout a home is a critical step in the current evolution of networking and entertainment," said Ben Bajarin, analyst with Creative Strategies. "This high-bandwidth connectivity will let service providers offer seamless solutions for bringing a range of new video services – IPTV, video on demand, online gaming, music and movies – from a single gateway or similar device to any display anywhere in the home without the need for new wiring, driving down costs and raising average revenue per subscriber."
Tzero is the leading supplier of UWB solutions including those for high-definition video applications. The company's advanced technology can connect a range of A/V components – displays, set-top boxes, digital video recorders, media center PCs, residential gateways and more. Unlike proprietary offerings, Tzero's platform is based on standards from the WiMedia Alliance and is guaranteed to coexist with other WiMedia-compliant devices.
