DLNA® to Showcase Easy and Seamless Subscription TV Content Streaming Throughout the Home at ABTA 2014

Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA):

     

WHAT:

Media and other attendees at ABTA 2014, the leading trade show for the cable and satellite business in Latin America, are invited to see demonstrations of products supporting DLNA’s CVP-2 Guidelines that enable users to easily and seamlessly view subscription TV content on multiple devices in the home.

Alliance Members are building products in preparation for the CVP-2 Guidelines Certification program, which DLNA will launch in the U.S. in September.

DLNA is engaging with Latin American service providers to discuss development of a CVP-2 profile for this region, using the same model followed by the U.S. cable industry. Service providers such as Cox, Comcast and Time Warner Cable have been working closely with members of the global consumer electronics product development ecosystem to develop and deploy the Guidelines in the U.S.

DLNA also will be demonstrating its base DLNA Guidelines that have been used to create one of the world’s largest ecosystems of interoperable networked entertainment and media devices.

According to Dataxis, Latin American service providers reached 63.7 million pay TV subscribers by the end of the first quarter of 2014, and the firm expected further strong growth in the second quarter driven by World Cup demand.

 

WHO:

Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) will display demonstration platforms for products supporting CVP-2 Guidelines.
 

WHEN:

Tuesday, August 5, 2014, through Thursday, August 7, 2014
 

WHERE:

Transamerica Expo Center, Sao Paulo, Brazil
Booth #H17
 

WHY:

Latin America is a prime market for DLNA’s new CVP-2 Guidelines, which enhance and extend the digital lifestyle by enabling consumers to enjoy their service providers’ full subscriber experiences on many different screens in the home. CVP-2 Guidelines are the first from DLNA to be made available to the public for free download. Users of CVP-2 Certified products will be able to stream service providers’ pay TV, video on demand and live TV content throughout the home with the full subscriber experience.

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service?

It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
