SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Zenverge, a leading developer of advanced content networking ICs, today announced that it will be demonstrating innovative operator gateway solutions and industry-first, real-time HD HEVC transcoding technology at The Palazzo® hotel in Las Vegas, Jan 8-10, concurrent with CES 2013. During a series of hands-on demonstrations, Zenverge will showcase its superior content processing technology on customer IP streamer/mover and revolutionary operator gateway solutions. Using Zenverge solutions, operators can deliver high-quality video content to a wide range of IP-connected devices at dramatically reduced operating and capital expenditures.
"Our customers are tier-one operators and set-top box manufacturers facing increasing demands to provide high-quality multiscreen experience to their subscribers," said Amir Mobini, president and CEO at Zenverge. "Our mission is to provide them with solutions that provide incredible gateway system efficiencies, exceptional video quality, and minimal system costs."
Zenverge leverages sophisticated media processing technology to deliver multiple high-quality HD streams cost effectively in a ubiquitous network to tablets, smartphones, Smart TVs, gaming stations, and set-top boxes (STBs). The company's flagship ZN200 IC is capable of processing up to four HD or 16 SD video streams simultaneously as well as two full HD input streams to 10 output streams for adaptive bit rate (ABR) profile streams, thereby offering unparalleled transcoding density and robust ABR streaming control.
Zenverge's flagship ZN family of content networking ICs are specifically developed for consumer electronics and STB manufacturers and are capable of supporting a wider range of devices, making them the ideal solution for in-home multiscreen support. By using the ZN200, cable, satellite, terrestrial, and telco operators can efficiently stream live content to iOS and Android™-based tablets and smartphones, deliver high-quality H.264 video content to legacy MPEG-2 STBs, and broadcast compelling video content to game consoles and other IP devices.
Given the rapid adoption of the HEVC format and expected consumer devices with HEVC decoding capability to top 2 billion units by 2016 (source: Multimedia Research Group, Inc.), Zenverge is taking a leadership role in supporting HEVC HD content on next-generation and legacy devices. Using Zenverge content networking ICs with integrated HEVC transcoding, operators can seamlessly support cutting-edge broadcast formats and new consumer devices in order to deliver a seamless end user experience.
The product demonstrations will highlight partner reference designs and customer products for a variety of consumer and professional applications, including TiVo® Stream IP adapters for easy consumer access to broadcast and stored content on tablets and smartphones via a TiVo multiroom DVR; media gateway and video gateway reference platforms for in-home multiscreen viewing in collaboration with Intel®, Digital Keystone, and MaxLinear; media NAS gateways in partnership with Cortina Systems; media adaptors in partnership with Monsoon Multimedia; and professional OTT, hospitality, and headend equipment with VideoPropulsion.

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee...
