Akamai NAB Booth SL4525--NanoTech Entertainment (OTCPINK: NTEK), a leader in the deployment and delivery of 4K Ultra HD, announced today that its award-winning Nuvola NP-1™ consumer 4K streaming media player will be a player component at the Akamai NAB Booth SL4525 in Las Vegas April 7-10. Akamai Technologies, Inc., the leading provider of cloud services for delivering, optimizing and securing online content and business applications, will feature the Nuvola player in its 4K streaming demonstration.

Using advanced technologies, Akamai and NanoTech will demonstrate how 4K content can be uploaded to Akamai’s global content delivery network (CDN) and streamed to a consumer’s Ultra HD TV using NanoTech’s Nuvola NP-1 4K streaming media player. The result is a compelling solution for broadcasters and other content owners who want to provide their customers with the 4K End-user Quality of Experience (QoE) they increasingly expect.

Akamai Media & Delivery Solutions are built upon the Akamai Intelligent Platform™ of over 147,000 globally distributed servers that deliver up to 30 percent of all Web traffic. By spreading content that would otherwise be concentrated in a few locations, Akamai offers improved network efficiency, greater security and attack protection, as well as better service quality for end users by providing continuous uptime and enabling faster access and download speeds.

The Nuvola NP-1 is a multifunction consumer device that can be used to decode a variety of video formats and resolutions including 4K Ultra HD, HD, SD and 3D movies. It can also be used to play state-of-the-art 3D video games. Based on the AndroidTM Operating System, the Nuvola provides fast, easy website access as well as access to thousands of video games and applications from NVIDIA® Tegra® Zone and the Google PlayTM Store.

“The Nuvola player’s ability to stream 4K content complements the Akamai Intelligent Network’s ability to deliver content at this ultra-high quality level,” said Will Law, principal architect, media engineering, Akamai. "In providing an end-point for streaming delivery, it offers a more flexible alternative to store-and-forward download solutions while the Android operating system simplifies player development and the small form factor facilitates deployment. We expect the Nuvola to accelerate residential 4K adoption.”
