VuNow Internet TV platform was voted "Best New Product idea" during informal polling by cable technology executives gathering at the CableLabs Technology Forum 2009 held February 8-11 at The Broadmoor Resort in Colorado Springs.
Attendees at the CableLabs Forum included, but were not limited to, executives from Comcast Cable Communications, Charter Communications, Cox Communications, and other service providers. Verismo was among 10 companies invited to present and demonstrate cutting-edge broadband technologies at the CableLabs Innovation Showcase.
The VuNow platform redefines the way consumers access and enjoy Internet video, enabling broadband users to seamlessly watch a wide range of online video content directly on their TVs -- without having to connect a computer in between. The VuNow PoD is a palm-sized box, available in standard definition and HD versions, that plugs into any TV like a DVD player to provide instant access to movies, YouTube videos, live TV channels, and more.
Additionally, Verismo Networks licenses the open platform to broadband service providers and equipment manufacturers. VuNow can be integrated into digital cable boxes and the service can be configured as a portal in a cable system's linear channel setup giving consumers seamless access to millions of online videos directly from their cable provider.
