SoC integrations could make place-shifting widespread

SoC integrations could make place-shifting widespread | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

Sling Media’s place-shifting technology, which until now has been limited to the company’s retail devices, DISH Network customers and the SlingLoaded pre-integrated platforms offered via parent company EchoStar (e.g. EchoStar Europe), is going to be made available more widely. At CES the company has announced the integration of the Sling Media SDK into Broadcom’s latest set-top box SoC (System on Chip) platforms, notably the Broadcom BCM7425 Dual HD Transcoding MoCA Gateway SoC. The collaboration paves the way for manufacturers of STBs and CE devices to offer place-shifting capabilities so consumers can shift their content to any compatible device via the Internet.

TiVo shows off streaming DVR content to iPad with prototype transcoder box

TiVo shows off streaming DVR content to iPad with prototype transcoder box | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

CES 2012 is jam-packed with smart TVs of every size and shape, but you won't find TiVo amongst the fray: the original DVR company is holding quiet meetings in its usual private booth tucked above the show floor. We stopped by a for a visit and were treated to a demonstration of a very interesting external transcoder box that lets you stream anything on your DVR to the TiVo iPad app when you're on your home network, and download shows to watch offline or away from home. The box is just a prototype right now — it might not look like anything like this when it comes out — but TiVo says it'll work on any network fast enough to support the TiVo Premiere's new multiroom streaming feature. In practice, the prototype worked well; we streamed a show from the TiVo across the room without any hiccups.
