has selected Celeno’s
HD Wi-Fi chipset for its new Wireless Video Adaptors. Available now for service providers worldwide, Comtrend’s Wireless Video Adaptors are used to distribute multiple HD IPTV content from any Ethernet-equipped home gateway or DVR to IP set top boxes.
The solution ensures reliable IPTV home networking, providing whole home coverage without any new wires. Comtrend’s solution delivers best HD viewing experience with unique cost-effective multi-client scalability by leveraging Celeno’s industry-first implicit transmit beam forming technology.
Celeno and Comtrend will be demonstrating the new product at the IPTV World Forum conference in London this week.
In a typical deployment, the Wi-Fi based HD IPTV Ethernet adaptors are placed next to the broadband gateway and the various set top boxes. With one push of a button, the network is automatically self-installed and associated in a matter of seconds. Service providers benefit by eliminating costly truck rolls and technician hours since subscribers can perform installation themselves. The IPTV home network allows subscribers to enjoy simple connectivity of multiple HD video sources (such as IPTV, Video-on-Demand, stored content on DVR) with the various TV screens in the home.
Powered by the Celeno CL1300 silicon and OptimizAIR technology, this robust solution leverages the wide 5GHz spectrum, employing special interference immunity technologies and selecting available channels on the fly. With special TDM-scheduled MAC, up to four TV screens can receive different and concurrent HD streams with guaranteed quality of service, consistently and independently of the infrastructure type or quality of the existing wires in the home.
The Celeno-enabled devices are environmentally friendly and comply with the European CoC on energy consumption for broadband equipment. Using Celeno’s unique Beam Forming MIMO technology, the radiated energy is kept to a bare minimum across the home as well as in neighboring apartments – in fact, radiation is only a small percentage of that induced by other Wi-Fi solutions.
